      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 .

Eastern Phoebe

Recommended Posts

The latest migrant I found today was an Eastern Phoebe. I also seen a Redstart fanning it's tail feathers, but was'nt quick enough to get a shot. All birds this spring are very skittish. Insects are just starting to come out so it should get better shooting when their attention is to food. I hope this next snow storm is gone as fast as it comes!

Nice Mike!....Not a lot of spring/summer migrants here yet just winter redpolls and chickadees for me so far.....Took a walk this morning and there's almost as much snow as in January on the trails....sure doesn't look like spring in my neck of the woods!(about 6" plus yet)....I did see 3 robins last week before our snowstorm hit us...highs in the mid to high 30's ....without sun the snows remain....

They'll be coming faster than you think! We figure they are at least one to two weeks late due to weather, and are pushing their limits being this far north already. I think our migration will be rather short this year.
