      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 Calm Before the Storm

Recommended Posts

The weather service tells us we could get another 6-12 inches of snow starting tomorrow. With that in my back pocket I figured I'd better take a walk today and see what I could find. A while back jonny redhorse had an excellent series called "The Little Things", and that's kind of what I focused on today:

All taken with a Canon 50D and 100-400mm. 200 ISO, most shot Av at 7.1 or 8. Various shutter speeds. Some ec compensation on a few shots.

I like the "little things." Very serenic. Beautiful work, too. Maybe I just need to take a "little thing" walk, since I am completely baffled by waterfowl.

Good little things, Ken. I got out today too, up the Fernberg and up the Echo. With winter locking down for one last blow and the first half of April supposed to be colder than average, I took one look at the sun this morning and just had to get out of the house.

Nice work! smilesmile

Excellent eye, there is great flexibility in the lens you used and your images fully demonstrate it! Love that feather on the snow, fantastic simplicity with great use of shallow dof.

Nice work Ken, I really enjoyed that feather shot and the second to the last bark shot. Very interesting patterns.
