    • FIX your edit icon screen so that we can save it!

      Make the edit icon popup page so that SAVE is visible rather than off the screen. I can't edit an icon in Firefox unless I collapse all toolbars because SAVE is not visible at the bottom of the screen. Very frustrating.

            • Anyone aware the certificate for *.symbaloo.edu expired on 11/11/2014?

              If people are complaining about security warning and such, click the padlock next to https://edu.symbaloo.com and view the certificate expiration date. Our tech folks are asking us to stop using the tool because it appears broken. Someone email me and let me know there will be a quick resolution?

              • Get rid of the ridiculous intrusive advertising that ruins Symbaloo !

                As it says in the title.

                I was getting used to using Symbaloo and then suddenly this totally offensive and intrusive advertising appears.

                I used to enlarge the tiles so that the screen was 'full'. It was a simple and calm way to choose icons. Now it is just your average junk system ...

                How many others of you are unhappy about this sudden nasty development ?

                I for one, shall be looking to find a way to replace Symbaloo because it is ruined.

                    • I want to be able to store categories of webmixes in tabbed folders!!!

                      I want/would like, to have folders in which I can store groups of web mixes.
                      It seems only fitting, that these folders would be tabbed in a manner like our web mixes. Perhaps they could appear in a bar above the web mix bar and include the drag and drop feature.

                      • I am unable to add a valid URL tile, it turns yellow. What could it be?

                        I am looking for support. I am unable to add a tile; the URL is good
                        For example: I copy and paste this URL: http://www.careertech.org/ into the tile generator and it turns yellow and will not save What could I be doing wrong? Things I tried: I removed the back slash, I removed the http://, I manually typed it in. Still it will not save. Thanks

                          • 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.

But, when the staff member who keeps the webmix up-to-date leaves, we have to copy the webmix, then change the settings on all of our student machines. Let's collaborate peeps!

                                • 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 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 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?
