      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 didn't go fishing today, instead I went to the dump and unloaded 5 bags of stinky trash and a bunch of recycling. Came home and opened up my Otter to make sure it is dry and guess what? There was still ice in the sled. Threw open some windows and aired the house out. Now I have to get the messy garage cleaned up and all my summer fishing stuff in order. Gotta be ready to hit the water as soon as the ice goes out.

You should be having a nice ice melting day today. Hopefully you all get some rain to go along with it.

The garage is also my weekend chore, but I have a 20 year old to help.

I had the surgery on both knees on April 8. So, a little over a week ago.

Glenn - I would go get it, but it's 3 hours away, and I can't drive that far because my knees hurt by about 30 minutes.

Got some good news last night though. Hubby went to Walker to get the boat!!!!! It will be home by Sunday night.

Finally made it out tonight. I stayed out with a friend, her hubby, and their munchkin until dark. Didn't catch much, some nice sunnies, a couple of small bass, and a couple of smaller crappies. It was fun though, I stopped fishing at sunset to watch it. Nice to be able to do that finally and not freeze!!!! smile

I think it is allergies. I am busy getting involved with another project. It is called "Operation Minnesota Nice", people getting together all over the state and adopting soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. They get together once a month and send packages to the soldiers. Anyone wants to know more google the name. I have decided my retirement is going to be fulfilling and adventurous.

Well it sure was good mental therapy! My man sure knows how to use his days off-surgery or no surgery. I can't wait to see his pics. He should post them in the next couple hours.
