Linking a Webmix to a Tile

If you are having trouble linking Webmixes to a Tile, see the error message “permission denied” in the address bar URL, or have problems with your Tiles linking to different Symbaloo pages with Webmixes that are not yours, please follow the steps below to re-link or create a new Webmix Tile:

Say that you would like a Tile of your “Education Webmix” to be linked to your “Home Webmix.”

Step #1. For this example, I will need to Publish the "Education Webmix" (In your case, the Webmix you are going to link via a Tile) from "My Symbaloo" (That is your main Symbaloo Page) to your PRO Webspace to access the link needed to paste into our Tile.

Step #4 Now, from your Webspace (first image below) head back to your "My Symbaloo" (second image below). Only you click the "My Symbaloo" space and click on an empty Tile to create a new Tile in the “Home Webmix.” (You will notice that you are in your My Symbaloo because it will show Symbaloo's logo.

Step #5 Paste the link you have copied from Step #3 for this Example, the link was (

Step #6 Once you've pasted and clicked the "Add Tile Button, you will have your new Tile with the "Education Webmix" You will need to republish your Webmix to update the changes
(If you want your followers also to see this change)
