How I Use Inlinkz To Add Product List

Hi, I've been asked a few times how to use Inlinkz, this is how I do it. I'm not saying this is the only way to do it, but it's the way I do it (at the minute, I've only been using it a few days, and I've had help too, thanks Sandy).

First you need to register at Inlinkz, the way I understand it, if you're going to use it less than 10 times a month then it's free (at the time of writing).

First off, click on 'The Link Manager', you'll then go to the next screen.

Click on 'Add New Collection'

The settings I like are 'Five' in the columns drop down box, with '100px' in the Thumb Size drop down box, but you can change these to what you find to be the best.
To start off with there won't be any products at the right hand side, to add the products that you want to use click on 'Add New Link'.

This box then pops up, go to the product that you want, in a new page.

Highlight the URL of the product, copy it and then paste it

here. I then give all four of the boxes the same name, describing the product. You then need to choose an image, click on the select image and click 'go', this should give you a list of all of the pictures from the page, choose the one you want. If this doesn't work, go back to the product page and right click on the image, select the 'Copy Image URL' and then paste it into the 'Image URL' page.

Then drag the image from the right to the left, give the collection a name that makes sense to you.

Add all of the products that you want to use, then click on 'Create', click 'OK' and the following screen opens.

Make sure you are on the collection you want, and click on the highlighted button.

This page then opens, highlight and copy the top HTML text. If you choose this one any changes to the products will get updated automatically.

When you've finished writing your post (you can do it before, but on the screen where you write your post it won't be visible so you may interfere with it), click on the HTML button and at the end paste your code. When you go back into the Compose screen it won't be visible, but when your post goes live it should be there.

I was on nights last night and I tend to ramble a tad, so I hope it makes sense. If you have any questions please ask, and if I can answer it I'll be more than happy to.
