      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 .

Which tells me that they migrate in the fall up there. Here we have them all winter, and they are now almost completely changed in color. Its interesting what a difference a couple hundred miles can make. I have finally had the arrival of the ruby-crowned horde. (Thanks micpic. But you kept them long enough!)

I am always jealous when people say they have them year round. The next species I always enjoy to have hanging around is the Rose Breasted Grosbeak and the Warblers. Soon

Me, too!!! Not before I get back from Washington, I hope. Do the Rose-Breasteds hang around for the summer there? That would be nice. Here they are just passing through. A lot of the warblers, as well. I have a slew of female purple finches right now. More than I have ever had. I keep hoping they will stay and nest and bump the house finches. But without any males, chances are slim I suppose? Maybe if the sharpies would teach them how to dance...

Speaking of Washington, can anyone tell me if I can stick my monopod in my checked suitcase? Or does it look like something suspicious?

That really should not be a problem or you could just carry it and put it in overhead storage.
