Enabling ThingLink on your Site

Last updated by Rachel Cohen on July 17, 2017 16:56

By enabling Thinglink for your website you can easily tag any image on your website or blog without leaving your site.

1. Click the below link to access your personal embed code. Copy this code. 

Personal Embed Code

2. Paste the code into the HTML document of your website/blog. Place it on the template of your blog or website so that it is visible on all pages. It is best to put it near the bottom, as close to the </body> tag as possible, but not after it. See detailed instructions for most common platforms below.

Once ThingLink is enabled, you will be able to tag any image on your site from the site. Make sure you are logged in to ThingLink in that browser.


WordPress

  1. Log in to WordPress admin (usually yourblog.com/wp-admin)
  2. Select Add New under Plugins in the left panel of your admin
  3. Search for “Official Thinglink Plugin” and install it. After enabling the plugin, select Thinglink from Plugins menu and make sure your Thinglink ID is filled in. If it is not, copy and paste your ID manually from My Account page
  4. Click Save (even if the ID was already there)
  5. Go to your blog, hover over any image and start tagging your images by clicking the Edit tags icon. Make sure you are logged into Thinglink in order to tag images. When publishing new posts, you can also tag your images in the WordPress Preview mode. Tagging from inside the WordPress editor is not possible.
