      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 .

I can't speak to all the local conditions, but as a plow driver for a metro suburb, the roads have been plowed, salted and scraped for the last 48hrs. Interstate and state highways are in good shape and so are county roads except in the case of bad drifting. Local roads are still snow covered, but they are melting. The temps aren't great for salt products but they are working.

I believe there is a number like 611 or 311 something like that, that you can call for road conditions. Check the phonebook or MNDOT website.

Well for the first time in 11 years, we're staying put. I talked to my work partner who said it took him 9 hours from Ely to the western burbs. This morning St. Louis Cty Sherriff is not recomending travel due to black ice and packed snow on the highway. So be it. It's a beautiful day. grin.gif

Down here (and some other places) we can call 511 for road conditions.

Sound like you better batten down the hatches. crazy.gif

I've been stuck in ELy before due to ice covered roads. Sometimes its better to stay put. Truth be told, we left anyway and ended up rolling the car just outside of town. I was in high school then, but the lesson still stays with me.

You might be able to make the trip tomorrow if they salt up there, but no point in rushing.

We headed from Ely to the TC on Sunday morning. Unplowed roads from Ely to Virginia, then OK roads but a lot of slippery spots from Virginia all the way through to the Cities, with a ton of vehicles in the ditches.

Snowed the whole way and the winds south of Duluth started whipping up around 40 mph. It took us 6 1/2 hours instead of 4 1/2, but we made it without incident.

Well, if a fella has to be stuck down here in the Big City over Christmas, and if he has to have a hair-raising drive to get here, at least he can detour to Rogers and stop in at Cabela's. So we did, and just got back from there. Ahhhhh, Cabela's! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Roads are now excellent in most places down here, but there still are a fair number of idiots going too fast and finding the ditches.
