In page templates


#1

is it possible to create snippets / items that are a template within themselves, so when placed on a page update when the master item is edited?

for example, a link list that updates on each page it is placed on if the master item is changed.

many thanks


#2

Of course and thanks Cthulhu!

It's a big part of Webflow, they're called SYMBOLS and they have their own panel. Useful for navbars, footers and all recurrent elements. Make any structure a symbol, break the symbol link whenever.


#3

many thanks, but if the nav bar has active styling on a link relating to that page, it will then be active in all instances across the site - can it be done so the active page link can be highlighted on individual pages?


#4

sorry, found it! thats clever!


#5

Yep! Our "current" class that's added for current pages works independently of symbols. Glad you figured it out thumbsup


#6

And it works in-page if you link in-page sections too!
