To start creating an Inlinkz LinkUp, first you need to log in to your account, or sign up if you don’t have one.
Go to www.inlinkz.com and sign in to your account:
Go to the Dashboard & click on “Create a new link-up“:
Fill in the basic details of your link-up:
1. Add a name for your Inlinkz Linkup.
This will be displayed on your dashboard together with a list of all the other link-ups you have made.
2. Add a description for your Inlinkz Linkup.
The description will be visible on your blog just before the entries. Use this field to display informative text for the linkup such as rules, prizes or other special instructions.The description editor supports formatting. Maximum length of the description is 2000 characters, including the formatting.
Duration of the Inlinkz Linkup
The linkup has a starting and an ending time.
It opens for link submissions at the date and time set in the “Start Date” field and closes when the “End date” is reached.
In between these two dates, the widgets displays on your blog an “add your link” button.
Here is how it looks on your blog:
When the start date hasn’t been reached yet, the widget does not display the “add your link” button but instead it states the date the Link-up will start.
Since the time and date is dependent on the Timezone you have selected in your account preferences, it states the remaining time rather than the exact date.
Here is how it will look like at your blog:
When the link up has closed and no more entries are allowed the “add your link” button will automatically disappear from your blog.
Here is how it will look like:
You can allow people to vote on the thumblinks of your link-up. To do that, check the box shown above and set the start date of voting.
Remember that once voting starts, the linkup stops to accept new entries and the voting graphics will appear, enabling the users to vote
This is how a voted thumblink looks on your blog
Users have a specific number of votes to cast (check is done by IP address of the voter) and more parameters regarding display and number of votes, can be found in the “advanced parameters” section.
Close Inlinkz linkup by number of entries
You have the option to close a link-up if a number of entries has been reached. You can set this number at the above drop-down box.
If you leave it at “no limit” then the link-up will close normally at the specified end date.
