1. Add a Wallpaper to your Webmix

Whether you choose a solid color or an actual image, adding a Wallpaper to your webmix can help your webmix stick out. If you do choose to upload an image, make sure that the dimensions or the photo are at least 1920×1280.

You can set a Wallpaper in your Webmix Settings above your Webmix. 

Note: A Wallpaper should not be bigger than 1MB

2. Add images or Icons to your Tiles

Sometimes, it gets tempting to keep the image that the tile comes with when first entering the link to create a tile. However, these images may not be the best way to convey what the tile is linking to. If you look through our icon database, you may find a better option.

You can edit your tile when you right-click it. Then click 'edit'.


3. Tile Colors & Titles

If you chose to have an image for your tile, you may not be able to see the tile color. But if you chose an icon, you most certainly will be able to utilize the tile coloring. This way, you can organize different subjects or websites by tile color. You also may want the title to show if you have several repeating icons.

You can edit your tile when you right-click it. Then click 'edit'.

4. Using Markers

The marking tool is a great way to make tiles stick out. Drag it over the tiles you have organized by color, and it will appear with the same color. Make sure to name the group as well. The name will appear when you hover your mouse over the group.

You will find the Tile Marker in the Webmix Settings, just above your Webmix.


5. Group Tiles

The group tile can help you if you have a lot of very similar tiles that are taking up space in your webmix. Drag a tile over another to create a group. This can be especially helpful if you have a lot of grade specific tiles (ex: 1st grade resources) or resources specific tiles (ex: math resources).

You can easily group tiles by using the drag-and-drop method. Hold the tile when clicking it, then drag it above the tile you want to form the group with. Hold it for a second and a group will be created!
