Adding Content in the TINT Editor
The first step to getting your TINT up and running is adding a connection. A connection can come from any number of social networks, such as Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook. We also have other integrations such as support for RSS feeds, and even instant messenger applications like Slack and Spark. For a complete list of connection types please click here.
1) The CONTENT panel can be found on the left-hand side of the page. The Content panel is where you add connections to your TINT. Simply click any network icon to start:
2) In the popup that appears, select the desired connection type from the top tabs (if present), and then fill out the required fields. To enable Moderation on the connection select "Manually approve posts before making them public." To complete adding the connection click the "+ Add" button.
Here's an example of what adding a Facebook Page connection would look like:
3) Provide login credentials for the social network if prompted to do so. (This is requirement for most connections; for more information click here). Click the "Log In" or "Authorize" buttons to continue:
You’re all set! The connection has been made and within a few moments posts will appear in the main portion of the page:
You can add multiple connections to your TINT by repeating the process. Once you have all of the connections in place you can move on to Personalization, Moderation, and getting your TINT set up just to your liking.
Removing, Renaming, and Toggling Moderation on Connections
If you need to remove, rename, or toggle moderation settings for a connection, scroll down within the CONTENT panel. The connection(s) will appear under the CONTENT YOU'VE ADDED section.
Click the cog icon to remove or rename a connection, or, click the lock icon to toggle moderation on or off:
