      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 .

Spring trimming

Recommended Posts

I've had my English Springer now for about a year and a half. I've kept the trimming thus far to a minimum, only keeping her ears and the backs of her legs trimmed up. She's starting to get a bit shaggy so I might want to take her in for a clipping this spring.

Do the mainstream (Petsmart, Petco...) groomers do a good job? Or should I look for something local? I've heard some bad and some good stories about the mainstream outlets. I live in the Fargo/Moorhead area, anyone have a recomendation for a groomer that won't cut my dog's ear off?

No need for a groomer, clip her yourself. If she lets you clip her ears then you won't have any troulbe clipping the rest of her. Invest in a good clipper and have at it. The money you save by doing it yourself will more than pay for the clippers. I use Oster brand clippers with a size 10 blade which gets them good and short without skinning them. We actually have two clippers so both the wife and I can work on the dog.

I do all my own trimming on my Springers. I highly recommend a horse/sheep sheers (got mine at Fleet Farm). Really takes the hair off quick. Going with the grain of the hair (head to rear) takes the hair off smoothly. Does help to have someone with you (at least on one of my dogs).
