I had not done a Webflow build in a while, but figured I’d try out & learn the IX2 workflow for one I’m currently building. The IX2 workflow for creating interactions is very nice but unfortunately they are just super buggy when trying to implement stuff across multiple pages or site-wide in a build. Which blows my mind…
For example… a simple “go to top” button that would pop up in the corner. Build it to show when the top navigation is scrolled out of the viewport… hide it when the top navigation is in the viewport. Just set it on the class for “navigation” (the container that holds my nav) and make sure those two pieces of content (navigation and scroll to top div) are on all pages. Easy right?
Nope, IX2 wants to point to the “original” source on the homepage when those two elements were placed in a new page… asks me to re-link the interaction targets (which of course are the same “technically” - same classes, same div setup, same stuff - just copied to a new page)… I do that… great! works again on this page… Go back to the home page to find that those were un-linked and it no longer works!!! Oh well, I’ll just build it with the old interactions, done and rock solid in about 2 minutes.
With that said, other class based interactions I built for this site do seem to work sitewide… It’s just kind of a buggy right now and I would hate to see the old ones go before they work the kinks out of the new workflow.
