We’re starting a series of How To posts here on our blog. This is the start of our future Help section.
One cool Bundlr feature that is sometimes overlooked if the ability to clip a particular image inside a website. It’s useful when a picture illustrates better the a certain article, or you just want to save an inspirational photo. And it’s very easy to use:
1. While browsing an interesting page, click on the Bundlr browser button or bookmarklet, like you would normally do. You will notice that, on the top-right of each image, a red “Clip image” button will appear, like the one below:
2. Just select the bundle you want and press the button above the image you want to clip. An image clip will be added to your selected bundle. It should look like this:
Simple right? Click it and you will able to see a bigger preview of the image, with the title and description from the website where you clipped it.
We try our best so that our clipper find the correct information from the websites you clip. But sometimes, some particular pages come with a format we’re not expecting, and the clipper stumbles a bit.
Now you can edit a clip’s title and description (the short text on the grid and list views), in order to perfect the final result. Just open the clip and choose Edit Clip on the Options dropdown, like shown in the image below.
Try it out the next time you clip something new ;)
One question we get a lot is where does the Bundlr community comes from? We’re glad to say they’re from all around the world. But these are the top 10 countries using Bundlr:
Your country is not up there? Help us spread the word by inviting your friends and colleagues to Bundlr.
We’re glad to see our own country, Portugal, well placed :)
The community has clipped hundreds of thousands of interesting content and media from all over the web. We finally decided to do it justice by launching a new search engine for Bundlr.
We now index all kinds of information we grab from the sources, and also show you clips that match your search. Not only will you get a lot more results, they will be more relevant, thanks to the extra data we’re using.
So, give a try to the new Bundlr human-curated search.
If you happen to have a lot of bundles, you know that your account page can quickly become confusing. So we decided to organize it a bit. Now, if you have more than 6 bundles, your account page will have two sections: first, your 6 latest bundles; second an alphabetic list of all your bundles (see picture below).
This way, your most updated bundles stay highlighted, but it’s easier to find a particular bundle.
To group bundles together, give them the same prefix like “Topic - Subtopic”. With the new alphabetic list, they will appear next to each other.
In the last months we’ve noticed an increase of inappropriate content on Bundlr. These are tipically filled with misleading links or explicit content, and should be dealt with appropriatly.
To address this annoying issue, we’re giving you the ability to report suspicious bundles and users. Reported bundles and users are checked out by the Bundlr Staff, who will apply the proper measures.
To report content use the flag icon on both the bundle and account pages.
