Rearrange order of pages and keyboard shortcut switching pages


#1

Is it possible to rearrange the order of the pages in the pages list? Also it would be awesome if you can quickly switch between pages (page up/page down for example) with a keyboard shortcut.

  • Yes, I really need this feature!
  • No, I feel that this is not as important as other items on the wishlist.

Hi that is some good feedback Benzai_san. Actually you cannot do either of those things at the moment, but I now the webflow guys always are really proactive when dealing with the feedback. I am a big keyboard shortcut and page re-arranger kind of person, I always seem to create the pages, but not thinking too much about the order of those when creating them, and it would be nice to have the possibility to re-arrange after the fact, or drag and drop like it is with the class outline...

One good thing though, is when you go to create your menu, you can still put the pages that do exist in any order you want on a navmenu, and that is really the only way to "order" your pages in your site.. (at the moment). Anyway, good very valid points smile


#3

Yes, indeed I'm the same. Sometimes I create pages too without thinking about the order or a client requests changes. It would be good to be able to set the order of the pages to reflect the menu.


#4

A big +1 on rearranging pages in particular! Same reasons.


#5

I'm thinking about the overall design of the pages panel. We'll be adding nested folders (for URL structuring) and drag and drop. Do you guys have any unique ideas or suggestions besides these basic features?


#6

Those two things are the only ones that I've bumped up against and wish I had, so they would be awesome!

As a plus, it occurs to me that nested lists like this would are great if you can collapse/expand too.


#7

Perhaps a small point but Enter key to create new page would be nice.


#8

A counter would be a good tool for those websites with many pages as well as it will help people plan better the number of pages if in a limited plan.


#9

Thanks for the feedback guys! Our next iteration of the pages panel will rock your pants (in a good way). Here's a sneak peak. No hard ETA for launch, but we want to built it soon.

Any feedback?


#10

@thesergie, looks great! Search will be really welcome.

Hopefully the folders are collapsable, yes? I'm assuming they are reflected in the urls (site.com/customers/customers-main, for example)?

One thought related to the Pages panel but not your screenshot: It would be nice if one of the options in a page's setting was to duplicate the page. The current New Page / duplicate / list of current pages affordance probably makes sense to keep as well, but 30 years of GUI use has me well trained to select an object and take an action on it, like duplicating a file in the Finder. (We don't go to New File > Duplicated existing file > List of all existing files...)

Thanks for the great work making Webflow better every day!

Any ETA on this next iteration?

Great work as always Webflow team wink


Page Ordering and Sub Pages

Yep that's correct!

I agree! Been wanting to implement this in the new UI but we had to table it because of lack of time.

Any ETA on this next iteration?

We don't have anyone on the project right now, but we are actually considering adding someone very soon. I'll keep you posted.


#13

Would absolutely love this!
Unfortunately this issue of re ordering pages etc is currently making prototyping with Webflow a nightmare... Not being able to re-order pages means you have to work in an awkwardly linear way, creating a mess if you need to make different versions of a page.

I would happily take this feature now over anything else in the pipeline just for its shear convenience. My current solution was to create my own chrome extension that injects js on each designer view load that re orders my pages either alphabetically or numerically depending on what i need. A nasty hack but needed for sanity smile. This feature is a must. Thanks guys!


#14

awesome! are those indented pages representing pages placed in sub-folders?


#15

Yep! You'll be able to have folders inside folders as well. We're aiming to make it very flexible for you guys.


#16

Hey wait a damn minute.... what is that 3x circle symbol under the pages icon? It looks suspicious to me @thesergie wink ...


#17

@jaidenraleach How did that get there? Looks like a JPEG artifact to me... wink

@tim It's in the works - we have an awesome engineer working on this project already! Hoping to have more news soon.

What were you guys thinking for keyboard shortcuts between pages?


#18

HEH. Those darn JPEG artifacts wink


#19

Thanks for the update! Really looking forward to this!


#20

Hope we will have an option to tick "make page css" in the next drop.
