Step 3: Select Source
Once your elink post is open you’ll see the first ‘Choose a Source’ step. Here you’ll choose whether you want your content to be updated from an RSS Feed, RSS folder, or a bookmark folder.
Next, you have the option of setting up content filters and include keywords of articles that you want to be shown and exclude keywords of articles you don’t want to be shown.
Next, you can choose between the ‘Best Results’ or ‘Most Recent.’ Best results place a priority on keywords first and then the time the article was published. Most Recent will place a priority on when an article was published and then the keywords.
Then choose if you want to only include content that has images.
Step 4: Header / Footer
Go to the ‘Header Body’ section. Customize your header text by using various heading sizes, bold, italics, hyperlinks, justification, bullet points, numerical list, etc.
Next, add a ‘Header Image’. You can add a beautiful header image to make your content pop! We recommend that you upload a header image that is 1500px by 500px. You can also choose to click on the ‘Design with Canvas button to use this third-party integration to create a header.
Go to the ‘Footer Body’ section. Customize your header text by using various heading sizes, bold, italics, hyperlinks, justification, bullet points, numerical list, etc.

Step 5: Choose a Layout
Go to the ‘Layout’ section and choose any layout. Your content on the right-hand side will instantly change. Make sure you’ve added weblinks on first to watch the magic happen! Choose the layout that best reflects the content you’re creating and sharing.
Important Tip: Switching between layouts can occur even after your elink post has been published. Yes, that mean after your elink post has been embedded on your website or blog you can quickly update the layout with a click of a button.
Step 7: Settings
Go to ‘Theme Design’ and update your theme color, text color, background color, heading font, and body font.
Next, go to the ‘Customize Links’ section and choose the maximum links you want to be displayed on your post. Even as additional content is added it’ll only show the maximum number of links.
Then you can customize your button text. On many of the layouts, you’ll see a ‘View More’ call-to-action button on each visual link for your elink posts. Now you can edit the text and write ‘Read More’, ‘Buy Now’, ‘Download’, or write something in another language!
After that set your title & description length with the maximum number of characters you would like to show. This is a smart way to make your visual content look even.
You can also decide whether you want the search bar to show, allowing your audience on web pages to search and find the weblinks they are interested in.

If you click the Automatic button, elink’s platform will automatically fill in your elink SEO settings on your behalf.
You can customize your SEO title, description and keywords for your elink to help it rank on Google SERPs. Select the ‘Custom’ button in the SEO settings of your post and add an SEO-friendly title, description and keyword to give your elink that extra SEO boost.
Sometimes you have internal content that you want to share with your team or company and want to share it with a private link. Private elink posts do not get indexed by Google.
Then go to the Social / OG Image section and upload an image by 920 x575. This image will display on social media when the link is shared, on Skype and Slack.
Step 8: Publish
Once you’re done, click on Publish.
A pop-up will appear allowing you to customize your URL. You won’t be able to change it once it’s published, so make it perfect!
