  1. when I try to upload an image for the backgroud, it tiles the image. How can I just get a single background picture?

    I wish I could upload a photo for the background and it would appear as a single picture instead of being tiled.

    • Tabs

      FYI, the drag and drop "tabs" function does not work in Chrome. I tried it in firefox and it works, but not in chrome. Please fix.

        • Missing Pages

          The Symbaloo page always says that the page I need is missing the first time I open it, It's very bothersome and inconvenient, that this is even a problem is a joke, my friends and I are in AP and Honors classes we don't have TIME for symbaloo and it's nonsense, I'm even wasting time making this known. Fix this problem, no the page has not moved, no the page doesn't exist and I know because the second or third time I use the like it works. Unfortunately Symbaloo is the only site my school deems convenient enough to use…

              • Text that doesn't cut off at the end of a line and resume on the next!

                I can't stand that when I type in symbaloo the words cut off at the end of a line and start again on the next line! I wouldn't want my students' writing to do that - it really models poor formatting! Seems like a simple word processing fix!

                    Wish your webmix would be more mobile friendly so I could put on my site. I didn't really like the mobile app on symbaloo, cause it didn't have the markers.

                      • Please add a feature to allow quick transfer of pre-existing bookmarksfrom other browser into Symbaloo :)

                        I have many bookmarked websites on my current browser Chrome and it is taking me forever to add them all to my new webmixes. A feature in symbaloo allowing transfers of selected bookmarks from my current browser or any other would be a huge time and headache saver!

                        • Reuse existing tile image

                          When I have used an image for a tile, I would like the image to be available for future tiles.

                            • allow for small, normal, and large size size tiles

                              The current general desktop tiles are larger than I like. Space can be conserved by bundling multiple tiles into a group tile, but that can get tedious.

                              With the high resolution of current computers and tablets, the options of small, medium, and large size tiles needs to be available, so that I can see more of my tiles on the screen.

                              The sizes could be (with 1 equaling the current tile size):
                              .5 x .5, 1 x 1, and 2 x 2. (You might even add .5 x 1 and 1 x 2.)

                              • Make serach in symbaloo more powerful, it should be able to search "Name on the tile:" and "Add the address of the website". I tried but :-(

                                Simple thing now we have many Webmix and a large number of tiles. And because of this often we forget we have particular tile or not, or if we have at which webmix.
                                So it will be good if local search become google for tiles and show results from each webmix as we type. Like If I type "Indianb" it should show results from my all webmix and all tiles matches with it, like Webmix:Tile => Home Webmix: Indiabookstore

                                • If someone with symbaloo could pass this along, would it be possible to set a shortcut for bookmark importing in the "Learn Symbaloo" group?

                                  If someone with symbaloo could pass this along, would it be possible to set a shortcut for bookmark importing in the "Learn Symbaloo" group?
                                  Currently one has to dig to find this as there is no "default" import function available. Had to dig a little to find http://importer.symbaloo.com/

                                  I suspect at issue with importing, when you have multiple folders, is that Symbaloo cannot make a mix within a mix. For example my folder called "Freeware" has 30 to 40 folders labeled according to the type of freeware. From Ubuntu to DVD CD Burning to Network tools to Harddrive tools to…

                                  • Move Multiplre Tiles at Once

                                    For users with larger webmixes moving tiles one by one can be pain staking. The ability to select and move a group of square of tiles would make editing less time consuming

                                    • I want to share a webmix but not all the tiles on it.

                                      Is there no way to copy a webmix, edit it and then share the edited version? Copying tiles one by one between webmixes is too slow.

                                      • I would love to be able to rearrange the order of my webmixes or at least have them alphabetically listed so I can find them easily.

                                        I would like to be able to move the order of my webmixes for ease of use. Or at least have them alphabetical so that I can find them easily. This would be great in the drop down menu and also in the tabs across the top.

                                        • You have Bing/Yahoo/Google as search providers in the center tile. How about Startpage as well or custom search pages?

                                          How can we make Symbaloo even more useful?
