I’m in the process of learning Webflow by recreating a website that I originally created in Adobe Muse. Here’s a representative page from that site: http://www.chuckbraman.com/paul-motian-interview-discography.html
The same page (and site), so far, recreated with Webflow: http://cbproject.webflow.io/ideas/paul-motian-interview-method-of-a-master
I’m trying to recreate the entire “Ideas” section of the site using a Webflow CMS I created called “Ideas.” As there are a lot of different pages on the original site formatted a lot of different ways, I’m not sure whether this is the best and most logical way to do this or not (or even entirely possible), but I’m treating it as a challenge to learn the Webflow CMS capabilities. Wish me luck!
In any case, there are a couple odd issues so far that I can’t quite diagnose pertaining to using a Collection List within a Dropdown Component.
If, on the Webflow version of the site, you click on the “philosophy / politics / economics” dropdown, the first three links inside are within a collection list. The fourth link is not. The interesting behavior is that the “dropdown list” part of the component expands to exactly accommodate the size of the fourth link, and even further expands as the text in the link goes from normal-sized type to bold-sized type when you hover over it.
Compare this to the behavior of the dropdown labeled “music / drumming,” which currently only has one link, which is within a collection list. The totally different behavior here is that the “dropdown list” part of the component does not expand at all to accommodate the size of the link, either in its normal-sized type or bold-sized type. Oddly, it (1) breaks the link into two lines, while (2) leaving lots of unused empty space to the left of the text. This seems particularly odd to me, because I don’t have any size set for any of these divs and components; they are all “auto.”
Now, if you’re in the preview project you can simulate the same behavior in the “philosophy / politics / economics” dropdown by deleting the fourth link (the one that is outside of the Dropdown Component).
Does anyone have any idea why the link that is outside of the dropdown component causes the width of the “dropdown list” to behave in the way I would expect and desire (it expands and contracts with the size of the text), whereas the links within the collection list within the dropdown component do not?
