      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 .

Ultimate fighting swallow style.

A large group of tree swallows has showed up this spring making the competition for nest boxes real fierce in my yard. I was watching two tree swallows duke it out for about a half hour before I grabbed the camera. They started in the air and took it to the ground for an all out wrestling match. The whole flock was swarming around them getting in on the action and when I came out they on lookers started dive bombing me to keep the match going. Things are only going to get more heated when the bluebirds show up and decide they want their own nest box.

Giving him the "claw"

Nice behavioral shots, but I think someone watches too much wrestling on TV. grin However, I think this would have been much more entertaining and true to life. Thanks for the chuckle. smile

Super! Nice! behavior shots. Great color on your images. I've only seen two so far this year. Most of them must have flew right over us on a good day. They do quite a bit of nesting here and are quite competitive with Bluebirds as well.
