    Howdy! I invite everyone with a coin collecting website to place a link here to the Coin Talk. You can link anyhow you want, what fits your own website best, but here are several suggestions.


    1. You can link to our home page, with the text being the name of the site:

    Coin Talk

    Code:
    <a href="http://www.cointalk.com/">Coin Talk</a>
    

    2. You can link directly to the forum:

    Coin Forum

    Code:
    <a href="http://www.cointalk.com/forums/">Coin Forum</a>
    

    3. You can link to the directory:

    Coin Dealer Directory

    Code:
    <a href="http://www.cointalk.com/directory/">Coin Dealer Directory</a>
    

    4. You can use a banner:

    [​IMG]

    Code:
    <ahref="http://www.cointalk.com">
    <imgsrc="https://www.cointalk.com/styles/default/xenforo/banners/cointalk.jpg" alt="Coin Talk">
    </a>
    
    * note: you may have to download that image to your own host to make it work on your website.


    You're welcome to come up with alternatives, link directly to articles, threads, etc.
    Thanks for linking!

    Hey, Peter, I think you wrote this for Stamp Exchange and forgot to delete 'stamp collecting website' and insert 'coin collecting website'.
    Probably doesn't help that you were doing it at 4:48AM.

    Thanks for the into - quick question:

    I've seen others link to specific user names...how does one do that?

    @stldanceartist - Pretty easy. :) Type the @ sign followed by the first characters of the username. After a few keystrokes the member to be "alerted" should pop up.

    FWIW, #3 does not work for me - either by clicking the link nor copying the code.

    Is there another banner that one could use in a rectangular form? right now I have a link to CoinTalk right next to the home button on my site.

    I haven't made one. I'm not that good with that kind of thing, you want to make one?

    I wish the dealer directory referenced the location in the state.

    It does, along with a map. All you have to do is click on any listing to see it.

    I wanted scan the directory to see if there are any shops that I don't know about in my greater area. So I have to click all the links in my state. Then I can see local areas. Then there are no addresses. So I have to search the net to see if the dealer has a shop.

    In a perfect listing, I would like to see the local area listed on the 1st page so that I do not have to click all the links in the state. Then the 2nd page would have any details the dealer wished to include ... like a address to a shop, shows he sells at, etc.
    Just my 2 cents. :shame:

    This is the form that those wishing to be in the Directory are asked to fill out -

    upload_2017-5-27_15-25-52.png


    Thing is not everybody provides all of the information. And it's entirely up to them to provide it, or not. And a space is provided for them to add whatever kind of text or comments they wish to make, or not make.

    What I'm trying to get across is that CT doesn't provide the info - they do. And before it even gets that far they have to request to be included in the Directory.

    Now you say there's no addresses, but I've yet to look at one that didn't have an address listed. That doesn't mean there aren't any that don't provide an address, it just means I haven't seen one. And I've looked at quite a few. But the bottom line is we can only give you, what they are willing to give us.
