Link to item in dynamic list on different page


#1

Hi,

I am in the process of designing the services page for this site https://preview.webflow.com/preview/echo-geo?preview=7a9097516c0a6f5b1a5b8ca1e711544e. I would like to link from a specific services icon on the home page to the equivalent icon on the services page. I have seen on the forum how to link to a section on a different page i.e mywebsite.com/pagename#sectionname. However, if I give an icon an ID in a dynamic list it applies to all the icons. This means I can’t link to a specific area of the page.

Is there a way to do this without coding (as I have no idea about code)? Or if it does require code, please could I have an example of what it should be?

Any help much appreciated!

Thanks,

David

Hi, @sparky

In your situation, I don't see the reason for using dynamic collections at all :confused:

But if you still need it, you will have to use 9 separate collections on the "services" page. I mean it will be all same collection, duplicated 9 times and filtered by service name. In this way, you will be able to set the unique ID to each service.

Regards,
Anna

Thanks for the response Anna. Ideally I wouldn’t use a dynamic collection but is there a way to do this which will still allow the client to update the content themselves?

Hello, @sparky

Yes! All content is editable by default. You can see that on the settings tab for each element

Cheers,
Anna

Wow! I somehow completely missed that incredibly important point despite watching every cms vid tutorial. It was worth having this issue just so I could learn this.

You have saved me mountains of time in the future. Thank you Anna!
