      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 .

Holy high water

Recommended Posts

What a difference 1 week makes. I haven't been down to Ft Snelling since last Sunday. I decided to go for a quick paddle this morning, only to find the river up appx. 10 feet, and the road to the landing flooded and closed. Fortunately with the water this high, finding a suitable launch site is relatively easy. People do give you some funny looks, when you're walking down the road with a canoe over your shoulder.

For anyone interested in heading down, the current isn't bad, and there isn't a ton of big stuff coming down the river. I stayed a bit further away from shore than I normally do, due to the chocolate milk water, and not knowing where any pesky deadheads might be hiding.

Only 1 motorboat that I saw, and they were up towards 494. I'll be back down there tomorrow around 11 AM if anyone is interested in a relaxing Sunday paddle. I've got a black Nissan pickup, with the homemade (4x4 blocks with a strap running thru the cab), canoe rack.
