      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 .

Stream Clean-up on South Branch WW

Recommended Posts

There's a clean-up this weekend on the South Branch of the Whitewater. As many of you know, the SBWW was one of the hardest hit streams during the August flooding, and there's a lot of debris that needs to be cleared out.

Through discussion with Steve Klotz and John Huber of the Minnesota DNR, the South Branch is at the top of the priority list for needed clean-up.

Consider taking some time out of your schedule to help with the clean-up this weekend. Without volunteers, it doesn't get done.

Thanks!

Here are the details...

OCTOBER 27 & 28, 2007

9:00 AM – 4:30 PM

VOLUNTEER RIVER CLEAN UP

SOUTH BRANCH WHITEWATER RIVER

K’S MEADOW to CRYSTAL SPRINGS

During the August 18-19th SE Minnesota flash flood the South Branch of the Whitewater River rose 13.5’ and severely damaged the campground at K’s Meadow shredding two-dozen campers through the woods. The flood waters scattered debris 2 miles down stream leaving a major mess along the stream in the Wildlife Management Area and on Lloyd Kreidermacher’s

land. We need hands to help pick up the debris. Winona County with the help of FEMA will provide waste disposal. The MTA will provide lunch.

Directions: From Main Street in Altura follow the signs and go west on the Township Road down to the South Branch and follow the stream to K’s Meadow campground for registration and instructions.

What to bring: Wear sturdy shoes, gloves and clothes appropriate for the weather. We will pick up debris rain or shine. Bring your own water and beverages.

We need your help in the flood recovery effort. Please come

and spend as much time as you can clean up the South Branch

of the Whitewater River.

No worries, it was a tough weekend to make for lots of people, including me, but there was a decent turn-out.

There was quite a bit of debris cleared out through K's on the near side of the stream (in relation to the road) on Saturday, and the goal was to get to the opposite side on Sunday. I'll try to track down some pictures...

We'll try to schedule some more clean-ups next spring; there's a lot of work to do and the DNR can't take care of it all.
