      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 .

I would be a little nervous!

They sure do look cool. I was on my way home and saw 6 of them floating above the river so I stopped to watch for a little while. They were all landing in a tree across the river so I went home and got my camera and my son and went to find them. I found about 11 of them sitting in 2 trees in one yard. My son, who's 7 says, "yeah that can't be good"!

Yikes! I haven't seen any yet. But I just saw the 1993 Pulitzer prize winning photo by Kevin Carter of a tiny little girl trying to crawl to a feeding area in Sudan during the famine. A vulture is sitting behind her on the ground--waiting. Your son is right--that can't be good. Of all the Pulitzer Prize winners, this is the one that just stunned me.

That picture reminds me of William Faulkner's "As I Lay Dying," with the vultures circling over the farm and foreshadowing the death of Addie. I remember reading it for a high school English class and thinking, "what a miserable, morbid book." I wouldn't wish that book on anyone, but it is apparently a rite of passage (or maybe teachers really are just mean and want to see students suffer grin)

I forgot about the vultures. Loved your comments. My daughters friend in college called it "As I Die Reading."

Yep, this reminds me of catfishing on the hottest day of the summer a couple years ago. It must have been 100+ degrees & we were really feeling it after 7-8 hours. I knew it was time to bail when the turkey vultures started circling overhead! It was was so funny because the timing was perfect.
