      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 .

The Little Things

Recommended Posts

I took a walk this morning thinking the grouse just might be starting the "drum" thing....I did spot one lone grouse but he spotted me first...end of that theory! grin...but also figured as long as I was out there this gray, wet, white snowy day....I'd snap a few images of things that we ordinarilly would pass by as we stroll along the trails....also heard geese honking in the distance this quite peaceful morning......a sure sign of things to come!

Those are nice shots. It's good to see pics of different things we pass by and never take the time to look at or capture with the camera.

Thanks Ranger....I guess these images bring out the "naturalist" tendencies in me (which I've always had since I was a kid I guess)..these tiny ,the "insignificant" little things are in and around our lives each day and rarely get any recognition but certainly add to the total beauty of everyday life in the outdoors.....We're so used to these everyday natural items in our lifes that they certainly and usually do get passed by ...glad there's others out there that see these "incidental" little things ....they can and do add "beauty" to our life's however so subtly...it's what "nature" is after all....

Excellent images, the thistle image is VERY nice. My son and I were taking turns throwing the little balls (featured in your last image) at one another's shirts the other day. They really stick well to cotton t shirts, those barbs are a fantastic natural design.
