Quickstart with linkaGoGo
If this was too quick :-) please read on.
- Setup your account.
- Drag and drop the following links: linkaGoGo and Add to LinkaGoGo, to your browser's links/personal toolbar. Internet Explorer users, use right-mouse menu 'Add to Favorites', then choose folder 'Links').
- Import your favorites / bookmarks.
Getting started with linkaGoGo
In the next steps we will get you started by setting up an account, guide you through populating your account with favorites and bookmarks, optimize your browser settings and customize your linkaGoGo preferences. If you get lost while going through these steps clicking on Home (See bottom right or top left of the page) will always bring you back to this page.
- Account Setup
If you haven't already created your own account, then use Account Setup to set up your own account, an account is free and allows you to store your own favorites and bookmarks.
After you have created your account you may have noticed that in the lila toolbars some headers like Recent, Favorites appeared, and that they are marked as empty. That is because there are currently no links loaded. In the next section we will add some links and see that these toolbars are populated.
- Add Bookmarks and Favorites
After your created your account you can add your own bookmarks and favorites. If you would like a quickstart and load the bookmarks or favorites from your browser then use the Import menu . You can also use the Add menu to manually add a new link.
Now some of your toolbars should be populated. The toolbar 'Last Added' should contain links now, if you used the Import menu also the 'Last visited' and 'Favorites' toolbars should be updated. If you used the Add menu and marked the link as a favorite; the 'Favorites' toolbar should be updated. If the toolbars are not updated it may indicate that your browser cache settings are not optimized for linkaGoGo, in the next step we will verify these. Note the 'Most Used' toolbar will be populated after we clicked on one of the links.
- Create an 'Add to linkaGoGo' shortcut in your browsers toolbar
In step 2 we showed how you can manually add a new link to linkaGoGo. However some manual input was required. By creating an 'Add to linkaGoGo' shortcut to your browsers toolbar, you just have to click this shortcut when a webpage is displayed in your browser's window. A pre-populated 'Add page' will appear. And you just have to click on Ok to add the web page to your linkaGoGo links.For adding this shortcut to your browser's toolbar see option 1 after selecting your browser in the Options/Setup menu.
- Create an 'goto linkaGoGo' shortcut in your browsers toolbar
Now you have your links stored in linkaGoGo and use them to surf the web, you may find your yourself quickly wanting to go to linkaGoGo for another link. By creating a shortcut in your browser toolbar to the linkaGoGo website or specify linkaGoGo as you homepage you will have your links always one click away.To add this shortcut to your browser's toolbar see option 2 and option 4 for specifying linkaGoGo as your homepage after selecting your browser in the Options/Setup menu.
- Customize the linkaGoGo fontsize
Depending on your browser settings and your screen resolution you may find the size of the font used by linkaGoGo too small or too large. See the Fontsize section in the Options menu. For Internet Explorer and Opera a font-size setting of 'x-small' and 'small' for Netscape give a good balance between readibilty and space for information.
- Customize the linkaGoGo toolbars
For a new account linkaGoGo always sets up a number of default toolbars like the 'Most Used', 'Recent' and 'Last Added' as horizontal toolbars and 'Favorites' as a vertical toolbar. With the sections horizontal and vertical toolbars in the Options menu you can not only change what standard toolbars you would like to see, but also choose any of your bookmarks / favorites folders as a toolbar.
- Customize the linkaGoGo homepage
Not only can you display links to websites in linkaGoGo, but you can also show the contents of websites in your linkaGoGo Homepage. You can display images or the webpages itself in linkaGoGo. See the Home page section in the Options menu on how to create your own personal bookmarks / favorites portal. See the following tutorials:
