Now that you're an official member of the BŪP family, let's get you started on creating your first page! Please note that each image represents an example of the instructions above it.
Once you login to your new BŪP account, you will arrive at your dashboard. This is where you will go to access, create, and delete your links. Let's go ahead and make our first link by clicking "Create BŪP Page"
If you are new to terms like "Biolink page" or "short / shortened link, then please reference the footnotes at the bottom of this page.
Once you click "Biolink page", you will see that a randomly generated link title is provided for you. Please note that custom link titles are not available with this plan. Go ahead and click "create BŪP page" to continue.
Once you click "Shortened URL", you will see that a randomly generated link title is provided for you. Please note that custom short-link titles are not available with this plan. Go ahead and click "Shorten URL" to continue.
Whether you created a BŪP page or a shortened link, you will see your new link appear in your dashboard. If you do not see it, give your page a refresh, and it should appear.
A few important items have been pointed out in the image below.
In order to begin customizing your BŪP page, either click the custom link title or the options which is represented by three vertical dots. If you click "options", then make sure you click "edit" once the dropdown menu appears.
