Creating your Bio Links
Creating your Bio Links is as easy as adding a new page to your Website. From your Website dashboard, open the Pages Tab and click + Add Page > Bio Links.
Once your Bio Links page has been created, it will be automatically saved as a page under the “Not in Menu” section of your Pages Tab. Each Pixieset Account can create a single Bio Links page.
Editing your Bio Links
Bio Links are simple, mobile-first pages that are optimized for social media. There are multiple curated layouts available for your Bio Links. Simply toggle the Layout button to cycle through the available options.
Similar to regular content blocks, you can click anywhere on the Bio Links page to load the settings panel where you can customize the page. Start by adding a Profile Image, Background Image with a Profile Name and Description to draw clients in.
After that, you can use the Links section to add the various links you’d like to share. You can also turn on the Social Links toggle to quickly connect your social accounts.
Tip: When uploading a Background Image, we recommend using a portrait/vertical image for the best results.
Customizing the Design
To help keep your branding consistent, your Bio Links page will inherit the global font, color and button settings from your main Website. Click the paintbrush icon in the top right to adjust the color scheme of the page.
Sharing your Bio Links
To make it easy for you to quickly share your Bio Links, there are 2 options for accessing the URL:
With the Pages Tab open, use the Page Settings option next to your Bio Links. This will open a modal where you can quickly copy the URL.
2. After your Bio Links page has been created, it will automatically show in a modal after publishing your Website. Any time you publish or republish your Website, you will see both your main Website URL and your Bio Links URL. After copying the Bio Links URL, you can simply paste the link to your social media platforms, newsletters or wherever you would like to share it.
Using Bio Links without a Pixieset Website?
If you don’t currently use Pixieset for your website, you can still create a Bio Links page for free. This process involves creating a Pixieset Website that uses Bio Links as a standalone page.
If you haven’t already, you’ll need to visit the Pixieset Website dashboard to get started. You can then select a theme which will load the website editor with sample content. Read more about getting started with Pixieset Website here.
Step 1: Set Bio Links as Homepage
After you’ve created your Bio Links page, open the Pages Tab and use (…) > Settings to load the page settings panel. Scroll to the bottom and click Set as Homepage.
Step 2: Delete Sample Pages
To ensure your Bio Links is a standalone page, you can delete the sample pages from your dashboard. Within the Pages Tab, use (…) > Delete to remove a page.
Repeat this process until Bio Links is your only remaining page. When you’re done, click the Publish button and your Bio Links page will be live and ready to share.
Please refer to the above sections in this article for creating and sharing your Bio Links.
Step 3: Customizing Colors and Fonts for your Bio Links
If you do not use a Pixieset Website, you can still access the global design settings that will reflect on your Bio Links page. Simply open the Design Tab (Paintbrush icon) where you can access settings for Colors and Fonts.
