How to customize your FlipSnack profile

As you may have noticed already, we’re rolling out a new feature: public profiles.

Public profiles contain all public widgets created with FlipSnack by each user, along with some information about the user. It’s the perfect place to showcase all your flipbooks.

If you have flipbooks that you’d like to keep private and not show in your public profile, you have the option of unchecking the box for public link in “my FlipSnack”.

Public link

Here is how you can personalize your FlipSnack profile:

– Set your own custom URL: www.flipsnack.com/username. Use a custom URL that represents you or your brand, and use it in campaigns, on your website or even on business cards.
– Upload a small photography or logo.
– Set your full name, location and a short description about you, your business or your portfolio.
– Add your website and blog addresses.
– Add social media buttons: Fb, Twitter, G+, Youtube, Vimeo (you can choose which ones you want to show on your profile).

All these options can be edited from Account options, or by clicking the “edit profile” link that’s right above the username.
Public profile example

For our free users we’ll display all flips with limitations: watermarks, 3 pdfs/flip, 15 pages/pdf.
There are no limitations for Premium users. Everything they set as public will show on their profile without any limitation.

What’s great about public profiles is that when you share a flipbook, your visitors will be able to go to your profile page and check out other creations made by you.

    Our apologies. It should’ve lasted less than half an hour. Is everything ok now?

  3. Andrea says:

    Hi – I am confused. Are we now only allowed to upload a max of 15 pages at a time for the free accounts? I have a couple others already uploaded and they are all fine. Can someone please enlighten me?

    Thanks.

  4. Jani says:

    Hi Andrea! You’re right! The limit for for the free accounts is 15 pages/ PDF and you can only upload 3 PDFs in a flip book.

  5. Myriam Ortiz says:

    En cuenta gratuita, no se puede poner texto para publicar?

  6. Jani says:

    You can publish flipbooks with a free account. Just make a PDF and upload it, but keep in mind only 15 pages will show on your flipbook. Good luck!

    I don’t understand this. I want to share my first flipbook, but the URL it provides is this: http://www.flipsnack.com/pet99bro/fztiyuch. I want to change the username to my company’s name — but it won’t let me. In other words, what you write here is not accurate.

    If I can’t fix this I’ll return the product. Am getting very frustrated here.

    In free account, you can not put text to publish?
    I really want to know!

    Hi Francisco, you can publish up to 15 pages with a free account and you can add texts on pages in our editor.
