How do I post my creation? (Facebook, Twitter, Wordpress, etc.)

Uma -

Smilebox offers multiple ways to post your creation. To learn more about an option, choose a topic below.

  1. Post your creation
  2. Post your creation link
  3. Post your creation video
  4. Post the pages of your creation as JPG images

For help uploading your new Facebook cover collage, please click here.

Please Note: Facebook recently changed their settings so you can only post to a friend's timeline if they also use Smilebox. For now, you can copy the creation link and paste it in a post directly on their Facebook timeline (see Section 2).

Post your creation

When you're ready to share your creation, click “Share, Print or DVD along the top, and then select “Post” (as shown below).

After clicking "Post" you will be asked to sign in to your account. Be sure to allow Smilebox as a trusted app. Please know that the information release step is required by Facebook, and we will never post on your behalf or access your (or your friend's) information without your permission.

Next, you will see a preview of your post where you can add a message. To post, hit "Share" (as shown below).

You can verify your post by logging into Facebook. You can change your posted creation settings by logging in at http://my.smilebox.com.

 

Post your creation link

If you are having trouble posting or logging into Facebook, you also have the option to post the creation link.

Please Note: Facebook recently changed their settings so you can only post to a friend's timeline if they also use Smilebox. For now, you can copy the creation link and paste it in a post directly on their Facebook timeline (directions below).

You will find the link at the bottom of the post screen (see below). Highlight, copy and paste it to your desired page.

If you only need the creation link, you can find it by scrolling down.

An example of what the preview link will look like is shown on the left-hand side of the screen.
