      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 .

Bald Eagle Whisperer ?

I might just be one cause I can't get close to lousy honker or a Hooded Merganser but I can walk right up to a Bald Eagle and take all the pics I want and he was still sitting there when I took off. No cropping on any of the shots.

"Look to the left, now lift your chin a little and look right, ok, now look right at me, chin down...." grin

Sue this was the first time that I have ever walked up to one. Most times if you stop the car they are gone right now. I am guessing that this one was a young one that did not know better.I know a guy that is a professional trapper and hope to get out to his house and shoot some day because he has lots of eagles looking for the carcasses that he throws out. He told me the numbers have been as high as 18 birds and he has spotted a Bobcat as well.
