Create recurring linkups (LinkUp templates /memes)

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could create LinkUp templates and memes in order to save time when you wanted to add a LinkUp? Well now you can! Scroll down to see how.

 

Saving settings and creating memes

By following the described process you can create collections based on previously defined settings.

 

Note the drop down menu!

Figure 1.

When you start using this tool, the menu is empty and only a “Generic settings” option is available. We will start by clicking the “Create” button

Set your preferences

The settings page hasn’t been changed a lot. Enter the linkup settings as usual.

You will notice though, that at the bottom of the page, “Template name” and “Template repeat rate” fields are available. If you don’t want to create a saved setting, just leave the name blank.

In our example, we want to create a saved setting, so we fill this with eg. My template

Then press “Create linkup” as usual. The linkup script will be presented and the linkup can be used in your pages. The only difference is that …..

 

A saved setting now is available

… when you create a new linkup and select the “My Template” from the drop down, its settings will be pre-inserted in your new linkup.

 

Pre-set collection

Not only its settings are available in your newly created linkup but start and end time have been adjusted accordingly (eg, if the rate is weekly, the new linkup is placed exactly one week later from the start time of the first linkup.

If you delete the linkup that you used to create the template, it removes it’s saved settings as well.

If you edit that linkup, it edits the saved settings too. !

    Inlinkz totally rocks! Love everything about it and now adding the new weekly feature has made it even easier! Thanks!

  2. Great stuff, I wish I found you before paying for another year at Mr Linky.

    Could you add a monthly option too please instead of only weekly and fortnightly. Some of us run monthly competitions/challenges. Thanks !

    • admin says:

      Monthly memes will be added soon . There are two kinds of recurring collections that will be added. One that starts e.g. at the 3rd of each month and one that starts (e.g. again) the first sunday of the month

  3. Excellent thank you very much !

    Thanks a lot. I’m using this linky list tool in my Friday Linky Freebies meme.

      Hi Jennifer,

      To add your links you have to set the collection to expire in the future. You can add links from the dashboard if you don’t want to do it while your post is visible. Just click on the collection name and it will open a preview window. After inserting all your links, set it to expire in the past as you already did. This way you can prepare the list before making the post visible to your users.

      If you need any help please don’t hesitate to drop me an email at info at inlinkz.com.

      Cheers,

      Aris, InLinkz.com

    Can you create a “recurring collection” but not have it recur on the same day every week? I’m planning on doing a link-up partnering with other people so I would only want my recurring collection to be present every other week or so. Also, how do you change the parameters of the collection closing time without messing up previous link-ups of the same collection?

    …hoping I can use the free version of inlinz 🙂

    • admin says:

      When you create a linkup based on a “meme” it actually applies the saved template to your new linkup and adjusts the time accordingly.
      You can then adjust whichever parameter of your newly created linkup you want without actually affecting the originating template.

      The “weekly”, “monthly” etc options is to just calculate the start and end time so feel free to change them.

      Regarding your second question, you can change every parameter in your linkup without affecting the links themselves.
      So, you can adjust start and end times whenever you want, even if the linkup already has links in it.

    The beginning of this article states to changing settings in the collections. I cannot find how to get to this starting point. The screenshots are not what your website looks like anymore.

    I wanted to make my link-up never ending but it says this is only an advanced option and the range I can put is only 60 days. Does an advanced option mean I need to have a paid account?

    If I start with a free account am I able to upgrade later on, and use the same first link-up I created in order to extend my link-up “end” date?

    Since bloggers share the link-up image if I have to use a new template to extend my link-up will this still include the links posted with the original link-up as well?

    Thanks in advance!

      Hello Caroline,

      Yes indeed. In order to have access to the advanced options you must have a paid account.
      You are able to upgrade any time you wish and you can then change the settings of the same LinkUp and extend the “end” date or set it as “never-ending”.
      Since you want to change the settings of the same LinkUp you won’t need to use a new template and the links will be included.

      Happy linking!

      Erodite

    if i create a weekly linkup, are the codes (blogger, self hosted wordpress, custom), the same each week or do i need to go in and get a new code each time?
