Workflow for creating a Collection Dropdown List


#1

I’ve been reading topics on here about how to create a dropdown list based on a collection in the Navbar.

In my case I just want a dropdown list of blog categories.

I’m getting a bit stuck when using a Link Block and trying to bind it to the collection item, as seems to be suggested here.

How do I get text inside the link block that can be binded to the category name?

@jonwright great question! Typically you create a dropdown, then add a dynamic list to your dropdown list element.

Within the list, add a link block and a text block inside of the link block. Then you can bind the respective link and text to the appropriate fields.

Could you please update your post with some more information so we can help you faster? Things like your read-only link & screenshots really helps us to help you faster :slight_smile:

Thanks Waldo!

I’m all sorted now, it was adding the text block I was missing (for some reason I thought that bit would be automatic!).

All working now, so thanks again.
