Post-Setup Steps

Post-Setup Steps

Theoretically you can use LinkAce after finishing the setup. I recommend checking the followjng short steps to make sure you unlock the full potential of LinkAce.
All following steps are described in detail in the Configuration section.

1. Install the Bookmarklet

Visit the user settings, available from the dropdown menu beneath your username. To install the bookmarklet, simply drag the Bookmarklet button into your bookmarks bar.

2. Configure basic app settings

On the same page as your Bookmarklet you can find basic app settings like the timezone, date and time format and some privacy defaults. I recommend setting the correct timezone and the date and time formats too. You may also set which share buttons should be available when viewing your links.

3. Setup the cron

The cron is necessary to enable automated backups via the Waybackmachine, enabling regular link checks and app backups. You will be presented a cron token and a pre-built cron URL on the system settings page, avilable also from the username dropdown. More information about how to configure a cron can be found in the System Settings.

4. Configure categories (and tags)

If you want to sort your links with the help of categories and tags, make sure to have some available. While tags can be added on-the-fly, categories have to be defined before. You can add new categories by clicking the “Categories” dropdown in the menu and then choosing “Add Category”.
