Connect your blog to Missinglettr

Updated 9 months ago by Jelena Mikic

This is the first thing you need to do in order to start using Missinglettr.

As you sign up for the service, one of the first windows you’ll be shown will request the address and basic information about your blog.

1. Site Details

If you have more than one website you want to connect, you can do that later. See here.

Make sure to pick whether your blog is personal or corporate.

As for the RSS feed URL, you can just copy and paste the address where your blog lives.

If you’re curious about what an RSS feed is and how to connect it, read this.

After you’ve filled in all the info, click the “Next” button.

2. Calibrate your site

Now you should reach step 2 of the wizard, which is quite cool: 

This step allows you to verify that we are indeed extracting your blog post content correctly. 
To get started, click on "Start Calibration" and give it a minute to load up your site and make a few smart guesses. After the calibration is completed, you will be offered a preview of your content:

If you are happy with the content you see, accept the calibration results by clicking on "Looks good".
If not, click on "Adjust" to manually select the container holding your content: 

Make sure to find a container that completely holds your content.
To be sure, scroll to the bottom of your content:

Once you've verify that the red outline includes the post content, just click on it to adjust the calibration. The results will be displayed in a few moments where you can once more decide to accept the calibration or further adjust the post container. 

The last step in adding your site is setting up your branding. This branding will apply to quote bubbles that we generate from your content. 

3. Setup branding

Once you're done with inputing your basic branding information, click "Next" to complete the setup.
If everything goes well, you should see the following page: 

If you happened to miss any of the steps above, access the Settings submenu to modify your chosen settings. 

Clicking on “Website settings” will lead you to this window where you can edit the basic information at any time. If you happen to migrate your website to a different domain, this is how you let Missinglettr know.
