      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 .

FIRE BAN LIFTED

Recommended Posts

September 7, 2007

For Immediate Release

Terry Severson (218) 283-6600

VOYAGEURS NATIONAL PARK LIFTS BURNING RESTRICTIONS

The rainfall received this week over much of northern Minnesota has moderated fire danger for the short term. Rainfall amounts received across Minnesota varied from a trace to almost six inches. Given the rainfall amounts received, Voyageurs National Park has lifted the ban on fires in the park effective at noon on September 7, 2007.

Once again, visitors can have recreational fires (campfires) in designated metal fire rings. Charcoal fueled fires in metal fire rings and grills are also allowed.

Fires in rock rings are not allowed. Rock rings do not contain fires properly and can allow fire to escape.

The park staff thanks everyone for cooperating with the fire ban during the recent extreme fire danger period.

NEWS RELEASE

Reduced fire danger allows fire restrictions to be lifted throughout the state (2007-09-07)

The combination of an increased amount of precipitation, and a return to more normal late summer weather patterns and conditions, with shorter days, cooler temperatures and higher humidity, has reduced the potential for fires to start and spread.

Due to these changes, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR), Superior National Forest, Chippewa National Forest, Bureau of Indian Affairs, National Park Service, and U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced that fire restrictions across Minnesota will be lifted, effective at noon, on Friday, Sept. 7.

"The long awaited change in weather patterns significantly decreased fire potential throughout most of the state to once again to allow campfires, recreational fires, and charcoal fires throughout the State," DNR Fire Management Supervisor, Olin Phillips said. "Although the fire restrictions have been lifted, it is still important to remember to be extra careful when enjoying campfires, burning brush piles or debris in burn barrels; or disposing of ash from charcoal grills or other fire containers."

The Chippewa and the Superior National forests will allow the use of campfires, charcoal, and wood-burning camp stoves in all areas of the national forests, including the blowdown area in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW).

At the same time, the Border Route Trail system will re-open and the entire Kekekabic Trail on the Superior National Forest will re-open for public use. For details, check with one of the forest offices or visit the Superior National Forest Web site at www.fs.fed.us/r9/superior or the Chippewa National Forest Web site at www.fs.fed.us/r9/chippewa.

Burning permits are once again available and will be issued by local fire management agencies.

For more information, contact public information officer, Minnesota Interagency Fire Center, at (218) 327-4558.
