Plus, we made a few naming changes.
Designing with Webflow CMS inevitably takes a bit of jumping between the Designer and the website, so we thought we’d make that process a little faster and easier for you all.
So, as of now, you’ll see a few new navigational options. When you’re in the Designer, clicking the W icon now opens a handy little menu with links to your Dashboard and the Editor:
And the reverse is also true! When you’re in the Editor, just click the hamburger menu, Webflow logo, or (if you’re using CMS Branding) your logo or your client’s, and you’ll see quick links to the Dashboard and Designer.
Note: only the site owner and Team plan members will see this menu.
Of course, you can still access the Designer and Editor from your Site Settings:
About those naming changes
And, as you’ve probably noticed by now: we’ve updated naming for the on-site editing experience from CMS to Editor.
The tabbed interface where you access and edit pages and Collections, plus create new Collection Items, is now the Editor Panel.
We made this change because the CMS encompasses aspects of both the Designer (Collections Panel and Collection Page Templates) and the on-site editing experience.
We’ve also updated “Content Editor” to “Collaborator,” because we’ll eventually have many different types of Collaborator, with Content Editor being just one of them.
We’ll be updating Help Center content to reflect these changes.
Enjoy the faster and easier task-switching!
