Add Lists to Display Dynamic Pages

Available on Agency plan and higher

The final step in creating Dynamic Pages is to create a list of links to navigate to the different pages. This is done by adding a List widget and connecting it to your Dynamic Page.

To connect a List widget to your Dynamic Page:

  1. Add the List widget to the page of your site on which you want it to exist. For more information, see Add Widgets.
  2. Right-click on the List widget to open the settings menu, and click Connect to Data.
  3. Select the collection from the Connect List to menu.
  4. Map the fields in the collection to the elements in the List widget you want to display.
  5. Under Connect Link to select the dynamic page. This is what creates the link between the List widget and your Dynamic Pages.
  6. Click Done.

Filter & Sort

When connecting widgets to a collection, you can filter and sort the collection to display only what you want. This feature allows you to control the number of rows the widget displays, filter according to specific text fields, and sort the list in ascending or descending order.

Note

You can filter and sort the collection in every widget that can be connected to a collection. For more information, see Connected Data.

To add filters and sort:

  1. Add the widget to the page of your site on which you want it to exist. For more information, see Add Widgets.
  2. Right-click on the widget to open the settings menu, and click Connect to Data.
  3. Select the collection from the Connect List to menu.
  4. Under Filter & Sort, you have the following options:
    • Items to Display. Select the number of items you want to display (for example, All, or 2).
    • Filters. Click Add Filter, and select the fields and values you want to filter by.
    • Note

      Filtering works according to exact values, and you may filter according to multiple values per field.

    • Sort. Click Add Sort, and select how you would like to sort the collection.
    • Note

      For numbers to be sorted correctly, the field must be numeric.

Tip

If you are having difficulty filtering and sorting correctly, check if the field is rich text. It is possible there is formatting on the text, even if you cannot see it. It is recommended you convert the field to plain text.
