The question for programmers


#1

Hi! I need your help. My project has a text animation, the words in which are divided into spans. And accordingly, each of these spans has the same animation, but different time of appearance.

I need the user to be able to independently and visually add words that would automatically form into spans with the same properties but would appear 0.05 seconds later than the previous one. Without designer and code. Visually.

It seems to me that some script is needed here. And maybe you could help me and find the answer to this question? I’d be very grateful.

Here’s the animation. I created a specially designed test animation:

@Bogette when you say

I need the user to be able to independently and visually add words that would automatically form into spans with the same properties but would appear 0.05 seconds later than the previous one. Without designer and code. Visually.

Can anyone who visits the site be allowed? Why is it specific to a span? Does the text need to be saved to the site?

@Poliigon I’m glad you came to help.

This is an opportunity for the site owner. Imagine that he needs to Supplement the text with some other words in the heading. Yes, the text need to be saved to the site. Normal editing of the text (as in the editor), but that animation in new, written words - did not disappear.

If it can be implemented as something else (not creating spans) - it would be great. Maybe give some properties of heading. But how to implement it is a question. Anyway, for me

@Bogette If your hosting with another host yes this is possible but must be done correctly to ensure integrity and safety of the site.

With webflow CMS or hosting I am not sure for I don’t use these features. But if your webflow allows ftp access maybe.


#5

@Poliigon In fact, I need this feature in Wordpress. Because the site will be based on this CMS. Created in webflow and powered by Wordpress


#6

@Bogette Yes you could accomplish this through several methods, based on verified specifics you could add a custom plugin and database table.


#7

@Poliigon Maybe there’s a manual somewhere?


#8

@Bogette you could start here


#9

@Poliigon But it seems to me that plug - in implementation is not the best idea. Still, this is the main text of the site. Is there a possibility to use the code? Wrap in Javascript or something similar?


#10

@Bogette you will still need to create a plugin, because I am sure you don’t want just anyone editing it do you? Will it require someone to be logged in to the site? if so unless you rewrite wordpress your going to have to create a plugin or stand alone feature. your going to need to create a script in php or some other form to submit and save to database. you will have to secure that form to protect it from sql injections. and if your talking JS you will have to use node ORM or some way of controlling those layers to the DB without exposing protected information

I know what you’re talking about. You want users to be able to edit content from the exported Webflow files, that are to be converted into a Wordpress theme, from the Wordpress CMS itself without any coding or touching HTML/PHP files. You can do that with Advanced Custom Fields plugin - I’ve done a lot of this type of work myself.

This and this for example, was created in Webflow, exported and converted into a Wordpress theme. An admin (the client) can modify any text or content on any page.

Hi @samliew. I have a built-in editor. The problem is precisely the addition of spas with certain properties.

You mentioned you were going to use Wordpress right? ACF can add additional fields in the editor to the specific page in the CMS you’re editing.
