Linking a tile to a Webmix

If you are having trouble linking tiles to a Webmix, 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 to link to “Education 2 Webmix” from a Tile created in “Home Webmix”.

1. You'll need to publish the "Education 2 Webmix" (In your case, the Webmix you are going to link via a Tile) from "My Symbaloo" to your PRO Webspace to access the link needed to paste into our Tile. 

Please click here to learn how to publish a Webmix to a Webspace.

2. From your Symbaloo main page, open up your PRO Webspace by clicking its icon on the sidebar button to the left of your Webmix tabs.

The drop-down list of Webmixes will appear, showing your Webmixes (where you edit and manage your Webmixes and Tiles) as well as your PRO Webspace(s) underneath the Webmixes click on PRO Webspace "Education 2" boxed in yellow (or your personal PRO Webspace in this case) to reach the link we'll be copying for the Tile. 

If there are no Webmixes under the PRO Webspace in your account, you haven't shared any Webmixes and must complete Step #1 before moving forward.

3. You’ll notice you’re on your PRO Webspace when you see the PRO URL in the address bar (ex:, now, click on the Webmix tab for the Webmix you'll be creating a Tile for and copy the URL from the address bar (see below):

4. Now head back to your "My Symbaloo" only you click the "My Symbaloo" space and click on an empty tile to create a Tile in the “Home Webmix”.

5. Once you've pasted or updated the link in the text field within the tile editor, click “save” to save your changes.

6. Make sure to publish the "classroom webmix" (in your case, the webmix with the tile you've just edited) to the PRO workspace if you've haven't done so (or re-publish if you’ve already published the workspace)

7. And that’s it. The tile should now redirect to the correct webmix! Please refresh your browser for your PRO workspace to reflect the changes. You can also test the changes via an incognito or private browser by typing your PRO URL in the address bar (Ex:
