      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Nice to finally be where the fisherman are real and the [PoorWordUsage] is left at the door step. Unlike the other place. Of course some of you guys that I have fished with kept this place a secret from me. I won't mention any names Doug.

Thunderman...I remember that day, was the only ice to be found. Were you one of the ones that stayed for the night bite??? That's when it happened that day. I think cnytim was there along with a few others.

Dark Cloud...Give him a little pinch to go along with that punch. You and your dad live way to close for me not to hook up with you guys at some point this winter.

Welcome aboard Kappy, I'm sort of new here myself although I know a few of the guys from years back. See you're from the Southern Tier so just make sure you represent the area as well as those two fine gentlemen do gringringrin. On second thought maybe the one fine gentleman, right AW? Sorry DC.

Mark...If I don't go Saturday I can leave my extra trap just inside the barn door. I can also leave my power auger if you want, that ice is thick up there. [PoorWordUsage] i'll even leave my little truck with both traps and the auger loaded in the back if you just want to take that. I know its hard for Dustin to get out with the new baby. Have dustin give me a call.

Pman...The only fun thing to do in the Southern Tier is fish or hunt and us boys down here learn to do that well. But I do love the Madison county lakes.

"A few years back"? - It's been a long time, I was just a wide-eyed teenager pounding perch on the north shore. grin

"Gentleman" - You must be talking about Tank because that word does not go with AW or DC. crazy

DC I remember the wide eyed teen-ager part, but according to others, not sure if it was perch you were "pounding" shocked. Yeah I was talking about Tank, figured if I didn't try to exclude you from the "two fine gentlemen" remark AW and Timmy would have been all over me.

Kappy welcome also . . .you must have a good memory if you can remember when DC had wide eyes . . .unless of course you got it mixed up when he bent over a hole. Some would say the face looks the same either way.
