After creating a Dynamic Page, the next step is to connect your widgets and each element on the page to fields in the collection. To see a list of supported widgets and data types, see Connected Data.
The Video widget is only available in Dynamic Pages. Multi-location and Social widgets are only available in Connected Data.
To connect a widget:
- Right-click on the widget you want to connect, and select Connect to Data.
- Select the field from your collection using the drop down (only relevant fields are shown).
- Select Done.
The Connected Data () icon appears on the widget indicating that it is connected.
If you convert a Dynamic Page to a regular page, all connected widgets will disconnect, requiring you to reconnect them if you convert it back into a Dynamic Page.
In Dynamic Page Settings you can change the collection. When you do this, page widgets will stay connected to field names/labels that exist in both collections.
For example, if you have a collection with fields named name, address and phone and you change to a collection with fields named address and phone, the widgets connected to address and phone will remain connected and display the data from the new collection, while the widget connected to name will be disconnected because it does not exist in the new collection.
Connect Custom Widgets
Custom widgets that support Connected Data can also be connected. Make sure Enable binding to Connected Data is toggled on for any custom widget you want to connect for Dynamic Pages.
The final step is to add a List, Gallery or Image Slider widget to your site so users can navigate to the Dynamic Pages. For more information, see Add Lists to Display Dynamic Pages.
