Additional Pages:
If your text does not fit on one page, you have an option to add additional pages. A menu is added to each page if you have more than 1 page.
  • Adding Additional Pages - To add additional page, enter the name of the page in the box above the text area and click the "Add Page" button. You can only add an additional page after your main page contains text. Name of a page is limited to 25 characters.

  • Changing Pages - You must be on the page you want to edit to change it. To navigate between pages, click on the page names in the sidebar menu when editing your pages.

  • Deleting Pages - You can only delete your main page after you deleted all of your additional pages. Check the delete checkbox or clear the text area to delete a page.

  • Menu - When additional pages are present, a menu containing the names of the pages clickable to the other pages is shown on each page. By default, the menu is shown in a sidebar on the left of each page. There is also an option to show the menu on top of each page and an option to not show the menu at all.

  • Background Color - An option to enter a background color for each page. Enter the HEX value of the color or click on the "color table" link to select from predefined colors.

  • Sort - An option to enter a letter or a number on each page in a sort box. The links in the menu are sorted by this field if present. Your main page is always sorted first.

  • Page Type/Status:
    • Show Page - Page is available to the public for viewing
    • Hide Page - Page is hidden
    • Include Only - Page is included in all other pages. This is useful for example if you want to have a header and/or footer page that is included on all other pages. You can have multiple header and footer pages. Whether or not the include page appears above or below the text on each page depends on the sort order of the page. A header page could have a sort A, a second header page B, a footer page Z and all pages in between all other letters.

      Hidden and include pages do not appear in the menu.

To have images on your page, you have an option to include images hosted elsewhere or Upload Images to BrickLink.
  • Folders - Add folders if you have a lot of images. After you have added a folder, click on the folder name to go to that folder. Deleting a folder will also delete all images in that folder.

  • Adding Images - Click on "browse" to locate the image on your PC and click on "Upload Image" to upload the image. To add images to a specific folder, you must be in that folder. If your image exceeds width of 640 then the image is resized to width 640. A small 80 x 60 pixels image will also be created for every image you upload.

  • Viewing Images - Click on the small image to see the large image.

  • Deleting Images - Check the checkbox below each image you want to delete and press the "Delete Selected Images" button.

  • Linking to Images - The image ID and file extension is located below each image. Large images are located in the /myImg/ folder and small images are located in the /myImgT/ folder
    • Large Image URL:
      <IMG SRC="http://www.bricklink.com/myImg/{image ID}.{file extension}"> or
      <IMG SRC="/myImg/{image ID}.{file extension}">
    • Small Image URL:
      <IMG SRC="http://www.bricklink.com/myImg/Thumb/{image ID}.{file extension}"> or
