      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 .

Same thing going on up here, Natalie. Thanks for showing the pics. At least the roads here are just wet, not slippery. My deck, on the other hand . . . crazycrazy

It's warmed up enough here to allow the ice to be fallin' off of the trees (a hazard in itself) but it sounds like round II tonight!

Yeah its been pretty bad all day. The roads aren't to bad, but yeah the sidewalks, driveways, parking lots, etc. are TERRIBLE!! I honestly don't think we will have any trees left after this is all over!

And its getting WORSE!! The tree in the back yard lost two more branches and the one in front has also lost two more frown. The first three with a road in the picture is Edison and the other one is Ives.

If you know the area... power is out in Finland and Beaver Bay..

Power has gone in and out quite a few times now.. The city has stopped trying to pick up the trees and has now been pushing them to the side. It's gonna be a long night! I'll post some more pictures tomorrow of the aftermath!

Our power has quit flickering, so I'm figuring the warmup along with the winds have blown a lot of the ice off the power lines. Let's hope it stays that way. We're in a pretty vulnerable spot up here on Finn Hill in electrical terms, because we're long overdue for power service upgrades.

Methinks the people in the richer parts of Ely get the best service, ya know? Long as we have electricity for the shelf-rock basement sump pump, we'll be happy campers. smilesmile
