The above fields are visible only if “thumbnail links” is selected at “Link type“. See below for instructions when the option “text-only links” is selected.

1. Link type:

In this section you can choose whether you want your link-up to display thumbnail links (a gallery of linked images) or text-only links.

You can create unlimited text-only link-ups with a free account and only one thumbnail link-up to try it out. Consider upgrading your account to add as many thumbnail link-ups as you want. Images are always more appealing than just text.

 

2. Thumbnail size:

You can setup how big the images of your inlinkz linkup will be in pixels. You have a number of size options from 75px to 300px, with 125px being the default. Click below to see how your linkup will look depending on the image size.

300px, 250px, 200px, 150px, 100px, 75px

3. Number of columns:

Set up how many images per row will appear at your blog. Keep in mind the width of your blog and the thumbnail image to make sure that all the images will be visible. We recommend to select “NeatFit” and it will automatically calculate how many images fit on your blog.

4. Display style:

This is where you can customize what will be shown below each of the linked images. You can set the value to show the name that the user has entered while linking or just display the image. No matter what you select in this drop-down box the images will still be linking to the person who submitted the image.

 

There are many styles available as shown in the example belowHere is an example of an Inlinkz LinkUp where Display Style is set to “Image only” :

Note that there is no texting below each image. If you hover over an image social media buttons appear like in the first image.

And here is an example of an Inlininkz LinkUp where Display Style is set to “Image and name/desc“:

Notice that just under each of the photos there is a name/description that the user has entered while submitted her image.

2. Number of Columns:

Set up how many entries per row will appear at your blog. Please keep in mind the width of your blog and the length of the text link to make sure that everything will be visible. You can select up to 4 entries per row.

3. Display style:

This is where you can set up what the linked text will be. When your readers enter their links they add a number of values such as their name and link. Choose between “Name and Link”, “Name only” or “Link Only”.

4. Displayed URL length :

If you choose to display the user’s URL but you have a narrow width on your blog, consider limiting the URL characters displayed for a better fit. The links will be truncated but will work fine.

 

General display settings

Figure 5

 

When users submit entries on your link-up they will enter a number of values. Using the settings shown above you can control what they enter.

1. URL Mandatory:

If you are running a giveaway and you want people to enter even if they don’t have a blog then you may uncheck this field. You will still have their email to contact them.

2. Display entries:

If you are running a giveaway and you don’t want an endless link-up to be shown on your blog then you may uncheck this field. Readers will be able to see the “add your link” button and the number of entries but not a full list of everyone that entered.

3. Max allowed chars in Name/Description:

If you have a narrow blog consider limiting the maximun number of characters that users will enter in this field. Keep your titles small and more appealing to the eye.

4. Order of displayed links:

Sort the entries displayed by selecting between the values “first entries at top“, “last entries at top“, “random” or “alphabetical“.

 

Notifications

1. If you want to receive an e-mail every time someone enters a link to your Inlinkz LinkUp make sure to select the checkbox.

If your LinkUp is very popular you might be getting lots of notifications filling up your inbox. If you feel you can not handle all this feedback then you can unckeck the checkbox any time.

2. You can allow your readers to delete their own entries in case they made a mistake.

If you select this check box, when the mouse is over the link a small trash bin will appear.
Here is an example of how it looks like when you allow people to delete their own links:
