Editing Hidden Divs from Template


#1

I purchased a "Essential" template by Zombi. I have difficulty making changes, e.g.: replacing the the default original content, email and address, etc, to ones that I wanted.

Can someone help?

I intend to use the same "Contact Us" template but couldn't find a way to replace info in the "Mail Us", "Call Us" and "Visit Us" fields.

Are you able to help?

Hi @chrislimyt, it may be a symbol you're trying to interact with, but I'm not 100% sure. Can you try to submit your site's read-only link so I can take a closer look? More info on read-only links here: http://help.webflow.com/sharing-your-public-webflow-site-link. Thx!

The public link is as follow: https://webflow.com/design/primalcom?preview=4943ad2b5511ebc385f0f3fd9f5d8bf8

I couldn't replace the default contact info, e.g.: email, tel, address, which is located at the Bottom Footer>Contact button: https://webflow.com/design/primalcom.

Hope you're able to help.

Hi @chrislimyt, Thanks for the link! I made a short QuickCast.io video (http://quick.as/DzGxf8oZ) showing how to make edits to your hidden symbol. Essentially, you'll want to double click the symbol from the navigator and then change the display settings on the hidden container from display:none to display:block. You'll then be able to change the contents. smile I hope this helps. If not, please let me know and I'm happy to assist further! -Will

I tried but couldn't work. I was a on trial account but converted into paid member a few days ago. Not sure if there's anything to do with my account setting. I noticed a some missing features from ones appeared in Tutorial videos.

There's always a message that reads "editing this symbol will effect xxx copies across your website".


#9

Hi @chrislimyt, Try double clicking the symbol to access it. Then set any hidden divs to "block" and you'll be able to edit them. Any luck on this? Example video: http://quick.as/DzGxf8oZ

I am having the same problem! I have followed the video but it is saying that the display settings are read only for the body symbol. I had to go back to the body symbol because all of the other states are controlled by that one. When I follow the video this is what the option looks like when i choose the "block" for display..it does not show the box like in the video. This is very frustrating. Can someone please help.

Thank you

@thewonglv I followed the video instruction and it worked...but now i couldn't exit the page of contact.

Could you please suggest how i can go back to the page setting, no matter which page i click now, i see the contact page only.
