Everyone has different layouts and I do as well. You only have one folder there in that image that David Atherton posted. Here is how mine looks with a bunch of folders, with the latest additions at the bottom like yours. I find that the latest addition section to be useful so I can remember the last coins I posted.

My gallery that is that image I posted. Just trying to show you an example of a later developed gallery with many folders. Yours only has one folder. You have to make more eventually.

Any way of deleting a single comment left by  on a coin in your gallery?

Someone left a comment that a coin was fake and I wanted to delete it.

I want to connect several entries im my gallery with direct links, e.g. if I have denarii of Faustina with different hairstyles I want to add a link to the other style.

The problem is that if I copy a link in the gallery text it is not recognized as a link. You cannot click it, you have to copy and paste it manually.

Is there a trick to work around this problem ???


EDIT: I found a trick to make it work:

Now I can add a link in the gallery text which can be opened by clicking as usual.

For an example open this gallery entry:

Gallery Link

All I had to do was to embed the link in a simple html "a" tag (see screenshot below). Everything in brackets is not visible:

No conflict from my perspective, but please don't link to sellers unless it is important. Incoming links increase Google rank. Linking to other sites could raise them above Forum in Google rank.

Hello,

If I've added a coin to the BOT gallery, do I also need to add it to my gallery or has it already been added?
Please check out my gallery: https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=6793

Have a nice day!

The two galleries are completely separate. You also need to add it to your gallery.

Is the New Format a Feature or a Bug?

All the information about the coins in my gallery has disappeared from the main screen, though it is available when one clicks the picture. I'm just wondering if this is permanent.

It probably is permanent. We have to make the gallery work on mobile phones to please Google and get good search results rank and to please the increasing number of visitors that use phones.

It was much more fun when the captions were displayed, so that you could read a bit about the coin and then decide if you wanted to click on the picture for a closer look.  Inevitably sometimes contributors wrote descriptions that were long-winded and discursive, but often the captions were very useful, for example, if the description mentioned some minor variation in the legend or privy marks which you would have missed only looking at the thumbnail. I'm sure it's a non-trivial problem, Joe, but I really hope you find a way to restore the captions.

The discussion here is mostly about changes being made to Forvm's software to accomodate mobile phones, I have a small but unrelated request.

Since the software is already being changed and rewritten, how about changing the Login page to have a cursor already in the Username filed so that I do not have to first click on the field to get a cursor there. If there is a cursor already there, I can begin typing immediately. Some websites already have that feature (Google, GMail). I know it is a small thing, but it would sure be nice.

The info in the following link is probably old by now, but perhaps it explains things better than I did above.

Thanks for reading and considering this small website change.

I passed your post to our Webmaster to see if he can do it.

The current gallery is made with Coppermine Photo Gallery 1.4.  The latest CPG version is 1.6.  I hope to upgrade to 1.6 sometime in the coming months but an upgrade is a major chore because our version has been modified. I assume 1.6 will have a like button and social media features.
