Page Switching

v 1.2.3

Apr 29, 2022

When working on a collection page in the canvas, a breadcrumb bar now displays the full URL based on its slug. You can easily switch between pages from the newly added dropdown menu.

This is an example text where each feature and/or bug fixes can be explained more in detail. Get started by clicking CMS in the Toolbar. Then, from the left sidebar, get started with some sample data of a blog (recommended), or create a new Collection from scratch. Once a collection is created, you can add and edit entries from the CMS view. If you picked Sample Data, a few example blog posts were already created for you. You can edit or remove those at any moment.

Editing Fields

You can choose to set up different types of input fields depending on your content. For instance, a blog might have a title, a slug (final part of the URL) and a long-form field for formatted content. These might be different for a product directory or a photo blog, where you might need to add an image field. To edit those fields, click any of the column titles. You’ll be presented with a modal to add new fields, where you can also re-arrange or delete the existing ones.

Adding Content

After setting up your own content, go back to the canvas. In the insert menu, by navigating to the CMS Content section, you’ll notice that a collection is now available to be drag & dropped in the canvas. This a special Stack connected with data. The layer will be repeated by the number of items of the collection, and automatically filled with each item data. You’re free to edit the look of it as you please, just as you would with a normal Stack.

Adding a Page

Now that you have a list of articles for your blog, let’s add a special page that will be automatically populated with data from the CMS, where the visitors will be able to read the articles. From the page menu, click the + button and choose CMS Page, then pick a collection (e.g. Blog) for your detail page. A new page will be created, displaying content pulled from the first entry of the collection you picked.

Linking Articles

When you add a page with content, each entry in the collection list (e.g. blog index) should be linked automatically to its corresponding page. If linking is not working in your project, make sure that the first item of the Collection List has a link setup in this way:
