      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 .

Recommended Posts

What meat stores have you tried that has the best Jerky? I will have to say that I have sampled Jerky just about all over the state everytime I see a meat store, and the best I have had is Osseo meats. Followed close behind would be Petty Bro's. smile The worst McDonalds in Clear lake! Thin, hard to chew, and tasteless! frown

Mine, of course, is the BEST! Pat's Meat market in Lonsdale has some great jerky as well as lots of other goodies. Mrfish have to concur the jerky at Von Hansens is pretty good stuff as well. Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

If you ever get close to Grand Forks stop in at L&M Meats on South Washington. Best of the Best. The owner is a avid outdoorsmen who spends more nights in his fish house than in his own bed at home during the winter.

Cant beat it

Schroeders in New Germany is great. So is Ittel's in Howard Lake. When my oldest son was in Afganistan, the jerky sold at the base was bad. He thinks he knows what they did with camels that wandered into the minefields. We tried to put Ittel's jerky in every care package we sent. His friends there would watch for his packages to arrive and find an excuse to visit him.

Have you noticed that all the great butcher shops have German names??

I second the vote for Ittels. While you're there pick up a ring of the Winsted bologna. There is none better. The recipe is the original from many years ago. Just remember it tastes best if it is eaten fresh and cold. If you freeze it, it gets a little watery.
