I've just tried to start another album in my gallery, but can't seem to figure out HOW to add to that album.  Also, a coin I meant for the new album was put into another.  How do I move coins from one album to another?  Now that I've posted a lot of coins, I'd to organize them a bit in new albums.  Any help appreciated.

First make sure you are in administration mode. Then click the My coins button from the tool bar. Next to each album there will be a button that says edit pics. Click on that. Now the album title line on each coin should have a drop down menu where you can select the correct album, then at the bottom of the page click save changes. and the coin will be moved. same goes for adding new pics. When you go to upload the album title will default to your original album, but there should be a drop down that will allow you to change it.

How do I change the order of coins in an album

Coins are listed in alpha-numeric order by the title.  To change the order, you must change the coin titles. 

If you want to begin your coin titles with a number (to arrange them by RIC number for example), use preceding spaces to ensure the coins display in numerical order.  If you do not use spaces, 1, 2, 10, 12, 100, would be arranged in the following order 1, 10, 100, 12, 2.  If you enter three spaces before each single-digit number, two spaces before each two-digit number and one space before each three-digit number the coins will display in the desired order.

I have rephotographed many of my coins that are in my gallery and would like to switch out the old pictures with the new ones.  I haven't found a way to do this. Is it possible? I would prefer to not have to rewrite all the info and to also keep the comments.

The software does not include an option to replace photos.  If you want to do a mass replaceplacement, you can mail us a CD and we will upload the new photos.  Each photo must have the same file name as the photo it will replace.

Is there a maximum number of coins in a gallery or a maximum number a member can list?

No, we encourage you to upload photos of your entire collection.  More is better!

Is the gallery only for coins purchased from Forum?

No, the member's gallery is provided for you to share your collection online, regardless of where you bought each coin.  Of course, we hope that in the future you will buy at least some of your coins from Forum Ancient Coins.

How do I request a new Theme Gallery?

Start a new thread in this section of the discussion board with your request.  Please limit suggestions for new theme galleries to those that you will personally support.  What I mean is if you have a dozen or so examples to start the gallery, I will be happy to add a new theme.  But if you just have an idea and don't intend to upload a significant number of photos, please do not ask for the gallery

How do I correct or delete a coin in a theme (public) gallery?

If a coin in the Gallery or Fake Coin Reports needs correction or deletion, please let us know by using the comments feature of the Gallery or Fake Coins Reports.   Please begin your comment with CORRECTION or DELETE and then follow with the details.  It is will be much easier for us to figure out what we should do if we are informed this way.  Thanks.

After a name change is there any way to change the name on all of your individual gallery pics to match?

Unfortunately, no.  The name is set when the coin is first uploaded.

How do I include Greek letters in gallery text?

It is possible to make Greek letters in Gallery text.  If you type the name of the letter between an ampersand (&) and semi-colon (; ) it will display as the Greek letter.  If you type the first letter of the name uppercase, the uppercase Greek letter will display.  If you type the first letter lowercase, the lowercase Greek letter will display.  Examples follow:

Greek_Gamma       Γ
Greek_Delta       Δ
Greek_epsilon       Ε
Greek_Lambda       Λ 
GreeK_Sigma       Σ
Greek_Phi       Φ
Greek_omega_small       ω
Greek_Omega       Ω

If I move my coin to the Best of Type (BOT) gallery and a better coin of the same type gets posted, mine will be deleted.  I don't want to lose my gallery entry.  What should I do?

We don't want you to MOVE your coins from your gallery to BOT.  You should keep a photo of all your coins in your gallery.  If your coins are worthy of any of the theme galleries, please make a duplicate listing for the theme gallery.

Is there a way to search a specific gallery or is the search option as all emcompassing as it seems?

The gallery and fake coin report searches will search a specific gallery if you are in that gallery when you click the search button.  It will only search the entire gallery if you are not already in a gallery when you search

Maybe I am doing somthing wrong. I go to the BoT gallery, click search, type "julia" and I get results from the entire gallery. I even changed pages in the BoT gallery and did the search bit with the same results.

Ya, you will.  If you look at the bottom by your search bar there are only the options for fakes, and gallery.  So if you are in the fakes board it is clicked on that and will search all the fakes, but if you are in a gallery it searches all galleries, not just the BOT etc.

Hmm, it used to search just the gallery you were in.  Something has changed with updates.

I suppose I should know this by now, but I'm going to ask anyway...

How do I create a dynamic link to a coin in my gallery from a post?

I know there's a "minus" sign involved but I can't seem to figure the rest out.

Thanks!

Use the link marked in red under 'file information'. If the file information is not displayed, click the Info symbol to display it.

Andreas,

OK, let's try this out...

Should be Augustus:

EDIT: It works! Or as Dr. Watson once famously said, "How absurdly simple!"

Once again, thank you, Andreas!

Therefore Dr. Z,
I must deduce that you are planning, in the near future I might add, to author a post or reply, upon this distinguished discussion board, related in some fashion, and also illistrated by, a coin in your gallery. Am I correct? Grin

Hi

I have a simple question that has been perplexing me for a while. How do I add my gallery address to my Discussion profile? When I go to edit my Profile there is a "Gallery:" which i can click on that takes me to my Gallery. But I cannot get that address to appear at the bottom when I post a response on the discussion board. Tried cut-and-paste of my gallery address but it doesn't work. Any suggestions?

Thanks, Dave

Go to 'my FORVM' -> 'discussion profile' -> 'forum profile information' and add your link as a signature.

Hi Andreas

I follow you up to the point where I "add my link as a Signature". I cannot paste my gallery address into the space where Signature is located. It simply is not active to receive an address.
