Why some new submitted links are hidden from my link party collection?

Tags: backlink

If you have enabled the require backlinks option from the +Advanced options, then, each time an entrant submits a link that doesn't comply with this ruleset,
the link won't be displayed in your collection until you moderate it.

Once you approve that link, it will be displayed normally in your party. If you reject it, it will be deleted from your collection permanently.

  • small
  • medium

Order links

Tags: order links, sort links

You can order the links in a link party from the +Advanced options while creating or editing the party.
Ordering options

There are four different sorting types:
Order links

Oldest: This is the default option. It places the links that submitted first at the bottom of the collection. This way usually the first one to enter gets the most views (clicks).

Newest: With this option the latest links are displayed first. Everyone gets a chance to be on the top entries. Latecomers get their chance to!

Alpha: This option orders links alphabetically. When links are sorted in alphabetical order, enable the "Don't show the index number for each entry" option as well to drop the numbers, as there is no need for numbers when links can, at any point, be inserted in the middle of the list.

Random: When links are sorted randomly, each time the collection is displayed, the links are in a different position. This is a good option when it comes to photo challenges where you should judge by content. No numbers are attached to the thumbnails by default.

If you want all the links to be shown on one single page, simply change the default pagination limit from your +Advanced options, while creating or editing a party:

The number of links per page can be set up to 300 links per page.

How to change the size of the thumbnails

You can change the size of the thumbnails from the +Advanced options while creating or editing a link party.

You can change the size even when a link party collection has already entries.

Thumbnails size
The available thumbnails sizes are three (small, medium, large). The smaller size is approximately 100x100.

Keep in mind that the way a link party is displayed depends on each blog's layout/ width since the widget is fully responsive (which means that it has been optimized for browsers on desktops, tablets, and mobile devices).
