      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 .

Pat, I had almost an inch from Tuesday night and about 3/4 inch last night. Hopefully our lakes got a little more than I did in Mankato.

Seemed pretty hit-or-miss for various areas with the region. Ah well, various watersheds should help bring up most of the lakes.

All of the Faribault chain of lakes have come up nicely! Still could use more rain to get em up even more. Looks like another round today of rain.

One can even launch a larger boat in French now without waders. :))))

Round 2 is here and heading your way fellas.

I cut the top offa PBR can and put it in the driveway to get some kind of measurement. It washed away. I'll have to empty another and try again but the total will not be accurate.

I'll keep trying until I get it right. wink

2.5 inches from midnight to about 4am. That of course does not count what came during the day. I believe close to 3/4 as my gauge was at 1/2 and a bit later, it tipped over from the wind.

1.6" saturday and saturday night. I have all my field work done for now and it just penneys from heaven for me. cool Alot of people don't understand how dry we are, you dig down 5', its still dry and the aquafirs (sp) are drawn down to record low levels. Thats what the black specks that are in the well water are showing up from. we need more rain.
