    Hi All - as part of the efforts these last couple of months to beef up the site like the new coat of paint, relaunching the monthly magazine, adding more content, getting with the times on facebook, google, youtube, etc. I wanted to get more incoming links to the site too. We have tons of outgoing links here on the forum to other websites, which is fine if the link is related to the topic at hand, but we don't have all that many incoming links.

    So, if FishLore has helped you in your sickness, MTS, addiction, hobby or whatever you call it :) and if you have a website, blog, myspace, facebook, twitter, youtube page, or whatever... please consider adding a link to FishLore. I've even set up a page to quickly and easily grab the code to link to us, so you can just copy and paste: Link to FishLore

    Lets see how many more people we can get hooked on our wonderful hobby!

    Thanks in advance!
    Mike

    Mike where would you suggest the best place on a youtube page for a link? And if I have that link to fishlore am I allowed to link my youtube from fishlore through sig/personal www/etc? Was told before I could not without a link back to fishlore, so I'm curious about making the connection between the two so I can link both ways. Does that make sense or did I confuse people? LOL

    I put a link on my youtube channel in the description box. It's not a clickable link, but still a reference to the site. http://www.youtube.com/user/MikeFishLore

    Yes

    For youtube:
    1. In the about section of your youtube page, click on the EDIT button
    2. A box loads below the google, facebook and twitter buttons to add a link.
    3. Enter title, link and click the Add button

    {img}http://i344.photobucket.com/albums/p321/Akari_32/clownfishbase.jpg{/img}{/URL}


    *EDIT*

    I saved the picture from that link to my computer, uploaded it to PhotoBucket, and turned it into that format. ^^


    {URL=https://www.fishlore.com/fishforum/}{IMG}http://i344.photobucket.com/albums/p321/Akari_32/FishLore380x63.jpg{/IMG}{/URL}

    I used this one:

    Its kind of annoying how codes can differ from site to site lol

    But I've got it working now! I made it so that it takes you to the main forum page. I tested it and it works =3 Yay!

    I think you should add the {IMG} one so that people can use it in their sigs of other forum type sites =3
