        Hi there,

        Thank you for using Symbaloo. You are able to access Minecraft from Symbaloo- there are no restrictions within Symbaloo.

        There may be a filter blocking access to Minecraft within your school. Please contact your IT director for more information.

      • When you clear history in Safari, it wipes out Symbaloo personal settings and you have to sign in again. Please fix so this does not happen

        Make Symbaloo personal settings stable in Safari so they do not get wiped out when clearing history.

          Hi there,

          Thank you for using Symbaloo. When you clear your history on your browser, it clears the cookies that you had enabled Symbaloo to use in order to save your log in information.

          Unfortunately, the only way to stop this from happening is to not clear your history.

          Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.

            The app for my iPhone does not give me enough icon information to identify the sites I have bookmarked.

              • Advertising on children's pages

                Good morning! I would ask that you take a look at the advertising in the background of your web pages for children. I went to a page (http://www.symbaloo.com/mix/firstgradereading#) that had on line stories for first graders and the advertising shows a dirty man who may be dead and the advertisement that automatically played was about a show that was definitely geared toward adults (the Path on Hulu). How can I suggest this page to the parents of my students when the images are not appropriate for the students? Thank you.

                  • 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…

                        Hi there, 

                        Thank you for using Symbaloo. Unfortunately, there is no official way of collaborating on a webmix. However, you can edit a webmix, share it with a colleague, then have them add and edit the webmix and send it back and forth between each other until you have a finished webmix. 

                        We apologize for the inconvenience. Please let us know if you have any further questions or concerns. 

                        Best regards,

                      • I wish I could choose to remove the center App and just have 8 more tiles.

                        Ditto on the symbaloo love. I never use the google, youtube, or any other center apps because I have them built into my browser. For me personally this means the center is wasted space. I would prefer to add 8 more tiles in the center. Please make this a settings option so that people that do use it, still can.

                          Hi everyone!

                          Thank you so much for using Symbaloo. Unfortunately you cannot remove the center Google widget, but you can change it to other search engines, such as Sweet Search for educational use, or to a time, date, or many of the other widgets we have.

                          To change the center box in a regular Symbaloo account, go to account preferences and you’ll be able to change it in there. In order to change the center box in a premium account, you will need to send feedbackus@symbaloo.com and we can change it for you.

                          If you’d like to add more tiles, you also have that choice when choosing “options” at the top of your webmix. From there you can add rows to the sides of your webmixes, but these new rows will not appear in the webmix preview option when sharing your webmix link with others, since it only displays the…

                          It would be great if the certification could be found in our profile in addtion to our own files.

                                    Hi there,

                                    Thank you for using Symbaloo. You are able to create tiles using any links that you would like. We think creating tiles with Spanish links is a great idea!

                                    Please also check out the Symbaloo Gallery for Spanish webmixes created by other educators.

                                    Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.

                                    Best regards,
                                    Lauren | Team Symbaloo

                                    Make the tiles easier to write on and add pictures. Also how about have one tile that opens up a group of related tiles....that would be cool.....I could have a class or subject on a tile that when students click it other tiles would come into view.

                                      • Tile image options should default at full image size

                                        Once I choose an icon for the tile, I have having to resize it to show the whole image, it should default to the full image being selected. I spend too much time maximizing the image selection for every single tile.

                                          Hi there,

                                          Thank you for using Symbaloo. When you add an image to the tile, the system uploads the image in it’s original size.

                                          If you’d like to save time resizing the image each time, you can always resize the image before uploading it on to Symbaloo.

                                          Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.

                                          Best regards,
                                          Lauren | Team Symbaloo

                                          How can we make Symbaloo even more useful?
