      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 .

Ice fishing forum problems.

Recommended Posts

Why won't my computers at home open the ice fishing forum? Every other forum on this site opens just fine but all I get on the ice fishing forum is the ice leaders banner at the top and that's it.

I'm stumped, help me out. I don't think it's a firewall issue since the other forums open and I'm pretty sure I don't want to take down the firewall just to read one forum.

This happened to me last year. Frustrating!!!

I'm taking a wild guess here but... you are browsing the internet with Explorer.

I think what happens (or happened) is you picked up some spyware that is giving you problems with that forum. Just a guess, but I've had aweful problems with Internet Explorer.

Try loading Mozilla Firefox. Its a free web browser and had much fewer issues with spyware, pop-ups, etc.

This was my fix. Hope it works for you. wink.gif

Is it possible that you need to clear your temp internet files folder. We have an issue with mitchell all the time at work where a file becomes corrupted and pages will not open. Clear the temp internet files folder and all is well.

Hanson, I run spybot and adaware weekly along with Norton.

Airjer, that didn't do it either. I'll try it without my popup blocker.

sunnyslayer- Thanks for posting this! I've had a heck of a time with my computer and some areas of sites would not work, and I couldn't get into the ice forum either. Now I can. grin.gif

I had the same problem. I found that something in the Norton suite causes it, though I am not exactly sure what. I disable my complete Norton suite while on Fishing Minnesota then turn it back on afterwards. The Ice Fishing forums wouldn't come up at all, plus a lot of ads in other forums too.

Norton plus Internet explorer = problems. Norton used to be the best and now it is more problematic then anything else. You would be better served with Micro Trend and run firefox. If you continue to use norton you are best to completely delete it and reinstall it. You must remove it with a norton utility. If you attempt to delete it with add remove programs through control panel you will have other problems. What probably happened was there was a norton warning sometime when you were in fishing minnesota and you told it to take action by mistake and now it keeps blocking that site. If you are paying for norton you should maybe look elsewhere. I had norton and two virus and PC micro trend found them and helped me remove them. If you download and run Firefox like previously mentioned you will notice your web sites load at least three times faster then with internet explorer.

Other than the ad blocker issue (is that Nortons fault?) on this particular site I've never had a problem with it or Explorer on either of my three Dell computers. The chances of me changing any of it are pretty slim, and how much faster than instantly can pages load?

If norton thinks that an intrusion has happened it will ask you if you want to ignore it , block it or allow it one time. If you were to choose to block it say if a pop up happened while you were in the ice fishing forum Norton will block you when you go to ice fishing even if there is no pop up. I am not saying this is what has happened only that it could be one possibility. I used to use IE with pop up stopper and the popups still got through. Since switching all three of my computers to Firefox no popups have happened. I frequent sites including this one a year ago where firefox was unbelievably fast compared to IE. Last year fishing minnesota fixed whatever the problem was last year so it is much faster now. A true test is a site like Iboats that runs much slower and you will really notice a difference.

      I've gotten a lot of eyes this year, this being my best. Several in the 24" range and a LOT of eaters. A buddy and I took my mom out fishing and we got our limit of eater eyes in about an hour and a half. Good times!

      Nice! That looks like a good time.

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.
