  1. Ad Pop ups

    So I made a really cool webmix for my students to use but there is one big problem. I sent it to them via google Classroom. But when they click on the link the background was a picture of a man and a snake from some movie or show they are advertising for and in fact a pop up of the previews began playing. I changed the tiles and the background color the tiles sit on to a solid blue but on their chromebooks inappropriate vioce overs and backgrounds pictures are posted behind and all over the rest of the…

    • resize tiles

      Please please please add in the function of RESIZING TILES! Yeah, I know, Metro UI has ruined us all, but on my webmixes, there are some sites I would really like to have the tile take up 4 tile spaces instead of one. It CAN be done, you know it can, otherwise the NEWS webmix would all be 1x1 squares. Let US do it too!!!!! PLEEEEEASE!!!!

          • I think you should add more site squares and make iT so it can load without internet

            There are not that many squares for all the sites I desire so it would be nice if you could add more squares, and if you could make it so it doesn't need internet it would be a nice addition. Please and thank you !

              Hi there,

              Thank you for your feedback. You can always add additional tiles to a webmix by clicking the edit button at the top of the page and clicking the “resize webmix” tab. You can then add or remove tile rows to your preference. Regarding the internet feature, our site is web based, which means that you need an internet connection. Without a connection, the site wouldn’t function.
              We do apologize for the inconvenience.

              Please let us know if you have any further quesitons or concerns. Thank you for using Symbaloo.

              Best regards,

                  • Stop using flash

                    HTML5 is not new. Flash is a dead content delivery platform and the continued use of it only stands in the way of actual consumption of the content.

                              • I love this site. The only thing I have not figured out is how to delete or adjust a tile once it is posted.

                                Suggest some of the top sites for education in a certain age group or subjects.

                                  Hi there,

                                  You can edit a tile by right clicking it in order to access the tile edit options. If you are on Learning Paths, you’ll have to use the trash button at the bottom of the page to delete a tile.

                                  Also, thank you for your great feedback. I will forward this on to our developers, and hopefully they will be able to work it into Symbaloo in the future.

                                  Let us know if you have any other questions or concerns! Thank you for using Symbaloo.

                                  Best regards,
                                  Bryan | Team Symbaloo

                                • 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!

                                  • 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.

                                      Hi there,

                                      Thank you for using Symbaloo. To avoid having tiled images, you must use the recommended wallpaper size of 1920×1080 in order to have the single background image.

                                      Let us know if you have any other questions or concerns. Thank you for using Symbaloo!
