  1. Allow much wider range of colors for tiles

    Whenever I create a new tile, I find myself frustrated with the limited range of colors, especially as the one shade you offer for each color often will either clash painfully with a site-specific icon or make it difficult to see.

    It would thus be a huge improvement if you'd either offer a regular color-picker (with at least the 256-color web/gif palette, preferably more) and/or -- better yet -- let us just plug in a hex value directly.

    Shading (like existing tiles) could be accomplished either by having the user plug in a second value, or by a semi-transparent shaded png…

      • Symbaloo is a great home page -or start page. I like that I can easily access my favorite webpages. Needs gadgets or widgets though.

        I would like to see a better way of adding gadgets or widgets, such as a weather app, calendar, clock, etc. If this can be done now I dont know how how to do it. I previously used iGoogle for home page, and I liked that they had 100s of gadgets to add.

        • More flexibility when sizing our webmix.

          Hello,
          I'm having some trouble with the dimensions of my webmixes. Indeed, if I want to delete / add a column for example, I'm forced to add it at a predefine side of my webmix (left or right). It could be nice to choose our selves in witch side of the webmix the column/line is added / deleted. :)

          • I love Symbaloo. Thanks for making our lives easier.

            Since I'm so dependant on Symbaloo, I'd love it if there was a backup somewhere in case God forbid something happens.

            • I would like to be able to search the icons and I wish that they were larger when looking through them.

              The icon are simply too tiny to see when you're looking through them. I was wanting a snowman icon for my link, but I couldn't browse through all of them one by one. I would like to search a keyword for an icon and see what is offered.

              • 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

                • Let people "donate" uploaded site icons

                  It would be great if we could offer the site icons (or even the entire tiles) we create into a Symbaloo database for the next person that wishes a tile linking to that site. Even if multiple users submitted their tiles, that would simply let us choose which one we prefer.

                  To prevent spammers, the tile could be set to only show up if they typed in the site's name or URL.

                  To avoid the problem of tiles deliberately made with icons that would be inappropriate for minors or point to the wrong site entirely, you could take a few…

                  • Search my own Symbaloo tiles.

                    I have a lot of tiles and categories. I'd like to be able to search my own tiles rather than just those already created and on file with Symbaloo.

                      • Don't have the Google center box create a custom search.

                        As it is I never use the center box for Google search because it returns a 'custom' Google search, which is quite different from a regular Google search page. I wish the box would just send the query to a regular Google search page instead of a custom one.

                            • Bigger range of default tile icons or even the ability to pull the icon from the site favicon.

                              As the title. Other than that Symbaloo is a great replacement for the standard Favourites in browsers.

                                • 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!

                                      When I change the background it says "new background active then it refreshes and its still the same. :(

                                      • Allow more than 1 person to own a webmix.

                                        It would be so nice to share "ownership" rights with another symbaloo member. This would allow my colleagues and me to contribute to the same mix but still have our own accounts.

                                          How can we make Symbaloo even more useful?
