  1. REMOVE THE ADS

    When I began using symbaloo several years ago there were no ads blocking my webmix, now you have inserted large advertisements that cover my tiles, which is horrible! I will no longer use or recommend your product or have my students use it as long as these ads continue to disrupt my use of the product. It's such a shame when good products penalize their free users with overpowering advertisements! Clearly you're not in it for education, but instead to make a few extra bucks on those you can't afford to purchase your product. You've just lost a great cheerleader…

    • Safe widget?

      I teach 6 year olds and I do not want them searching ANYTHING. I use symbaloo to curate safe sites for them. Please create a widget that can go in the center that does not have a search bar. It can be your logo or a working clock or an animated gif, but one choice without the search function please.

      • Follett Destiny Discover Widget

        Destiny Discover is a search function for school libraries using Follett management software. Many librarians already use Symbaloo to curate resources and including the powerful search function of Destiny Discover would provide students, teachers, and parents with access to all of the recommended resources in one convenient location.

          Bryan | Team Symbaloo

            • How in the world can you allow ads on this site and call it support? If I have an idea it will no longer be shared here.

              I'm not going to browse through you ads to give you my free input. How can you find my suggestions having to browse through this crap? Oh, I know! You block them out of your internal server. Are any of these ads checked for viruses, malware, trojans and every other dangerous threats? This makes me question exactly how safe our info is with your webmixes.

                • How to quit smoking?

                  How to quit smoking?
                  Cigarettes are insidious and slowly destroy the body and the desire to quit smoking usually appears at a time when the tobacco dependence has taken over us. But smoking is not only a habit: it's also an addiction more information http://e-cigaretteexpert.com/

                          • webmix sharing

                            All people to look at a webmix without being prompted to log in or create an account. That is really annoying when you are just trying to share a mix.

                            • Symbaloo could generate a bibliography/works cited page after a student creates a set of research related bookmarks.

                              A student would /create a symbaloo/bookmark all resources used for research project. A works cited/bibliography page could be automatically generated based on the bookmarks. This would include a drop-down menu allowing them to select the format style (MLA, APA, etc).

                                How about tutorials that define "Best Practice" when setting up a Pro account, landing page and then linking other webmixes to it. I have made so many mistakes and have had a lot of trouble with this.

                                    • No Account Needed for Shared Symbaloo

                                      It would be helpful if I could share a Symbaloo board and the recipient could use it without having to have a Symbaloo account. For example, I use Symbaloo to collect activities for my students, but they can't just access the link without setting up an account. To set up accounts for 135 second graders isn't the most feasible idea, so I can't utilize Symbaloo like I want to.

                                      • Lock/Unlock and Turn On/Off certain tiles for student use so that I do not have to create a seperate Symbaloo for student use

                                        If I want to include certain teacher only links for my EL symbaloo that only I need to have access to, such teacher version online text book site or performance task answer key document that students would never and should never access then I have to create a seperate symbaloo - one for students and one for myself as opposed to having 1 symbaloo with teacher and students tiles that can be "turned on/off" and accessed only by the owner.

                                        • I wish I could do a search for my own tiles

                                          I wish I could have search box to search my own tiles. I have so many now I need some help in finding a tile that could be on two or three different webmixes.

                                          • Don't see your idea?

                                          How can we make Symbaloo even more useful?
