      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Aldo Leopold shack and Crane Foundation

Recommended Posts

A group of us from the Wildlife Society at UW-Stevens Point made the journey down to Aldo Leopolds "shack" and the International Crane Foundation in Baraboo, WI yesterday. The weather didn't cooperate at all and it rained most of the day not giving me much for good photo opportunities. But, it is still quite a feeling being on Aldos land and in his cabin and seeing so many of the things that he talked about in his book. If you don know who Aldo is, he is the father of Wildlife Managment and taught at UW-Madison for many years and also was the writer of "A Sand County Almanac".

Here is a small sample of yesterday.

Aldos "Shack"


"The Parthenon" as the Leopolds called it


Site of "The Good Oak" from Sand County Almanac


As I said we also visited the International Crane Foundation which was also very interesting and definetly a place to stop at if you are ever in the area. They are adding on and building an african exhibit so they will have all fifteen crane species on the site. It is very hard to get pictures through the fencing as they are strict about staying behind the rail so they dont attack so here is all i had to work with.

Sandhill Crane


White Napped Crane


Whooping Crane



Black Crowned Crane


Eurasian Crane
