By default, once you create a tip- it will be visible to anyone.

Simply click the Save button which appears on the tip and save it in a collection.

You can access the tips you created by going to your user page (click on your user icon on the right corner of the top bar). From there you will find them under "tips" or under "tippolas".

If you choose to change the status of your collection from 'embeddable' to 'non-embbedable'- other users will not be able to embed your that specific tippola and it's tips in external sites.

When you create a tip collection you are entitled to define the following:

Title- We advise to provide a descriptive title so others will understand what the tips are about.

Image- Choose the image which you would like to appear on your tip collection cover. In case you leave it empty, your profile image will appear as the image cover.

If you can't find an appropriate topic for your tip collection, chose the 'other' topic. Don't worry, your collection and tips will come up in search results on Tippola if they include keywords and text that people search for.
