      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 .

Computer desktop question

Can anyone tell me why my icons on my desktop change??

Usually there was a lightbulb for the icon for FishingMinnesota, but now it's an icon for a different website.

Same thing for other websites. They're not the usual icons, but rather icons from different websites???

If the icons have changed on your desktop, whether physically appear different, or are linking you to strange sites, you've more than likely been infected with some sort of virus.

I've seen that back in win98 days. Icons for programs as well would do the switch. As mentioned, get a spyware and malware app and run it fully. Also make sure you have enough memory, and that you aren't having a ton of apps running in the background (i.e. things you most likely don't even know about, like MS Office Manager, Quicktime, Real Player, etc.). Each one on its own doesn't take much, but all together they eat memory and make your computer do goofy things. Especially if you got a basic cheaper computer with an integrated video chipset, and didn't put in additional RAM.

Also, make sure to do regular Windows updates.

Good luck, on my WinXP Pro I have not seen this, but on my other 98 machines in the past it would happen when I didn't do good enough house keeping.

Also try not to save Bookmarks on your desktop. Put them in the Favorites or Bookmark folder and use that instead of desktop icons, they DO slow down your system.

So far I've run my Ad-Aware and my virus scan.

Deleted all cookies, temp internet files and browsing history.

I've deleted the affected shortcuts on the desktop and redid them.

The Fishing Minnesota icon is back to the original lightbulb, but Google is still a big "W" and Ebay is something like a globe in a garbage can.

Usually they're what the little symbol is in the address bar at the top of the screen.
