We have been listening closely to user feedback and based on what we heard, we are releasing two features that we think you’ll love:
- Custom Profiles – Setup a profile list you can use on Listly or elsewhere
- Quick Add Items – Add multiple items to a list quickly

Create a list called “/profile/” and add links to all your social profiles. Here’s a full explanation of how to set up a custom profile in case you need any tips. Many of you have already jumped in and made your custom profile lists.
The big benefit of using a list to log your social profiles is you can obviously embed your list on your blog. As a list, your collection of links also becomes much more shareable.
If you want to embed your profile list, paste this custom CSS modification into your post or page and you’ll notice the header is hidden, so when you embed it, all you see is the list content.
You’ll notice the “Quick Add Items” section is now visible on any list you own. The items are processed live, so don’t leave the page until your latest batch has been processed.
You can provide any of the following format, one per line.
- URLs / Links - ie something that begins with http:// or https:// or www.
- Twitter Handles > these must begin with an @ symbol followed by a twitter handle e.g. @listly
- Text Items ie items on a list that don’t link to anywhere
