Hello! I have an idea but I can’t make my brain figure out how to actually do it. Here’s the TL/DR…how do I take a project and move it into another project without losing any of my formatting? Currently, I’ve been going through each page and manually copying each element and pasting them into the project I actually want them to be in. This not only takes forever but I also then have to manually fix almost all of the design. I tried duplicating the project (which works as far as not having to fix anything) but that doesn’t make it part of the other project. I feel like this should be super simple and I can’t figure it out!
Here’s the long drawn out backstory…I’m brand new to Webflow and the world of web design so my “portfolio” consists of several sites I’ve made either as part of an Udemy class I took, sites I’ve made with the intent of improving existing (real) sites that I’ve found in the wild that could really use help, and sites I’ve completely made up just to try something out that I saw. I do have a paid Webflow plan but am limited to ten projects and have run out of space, forcing me to delete projects that I didn’t feel were “winners”.
I applied for a position that sounds like a lot of fun, and as part of my application, I did a super quick redesign of their existing site, and lo and behold they want to talk with me. While I was completing my application I thought I should include some of my dummy sites so they could see my work. I’ve made myself my own site to act as a portfolio but I didn’t like the look and feel of just including a bunch of links to sites that don’t actually exist. So, my idea was to create a project in Webflow and have each site as a folder within the same project and then share the read-only link. I couldn’t figure out how to do that so I wound up just sending them a list of links to the separate projects but it looked pretty janky.
These are sites that I’ve built myself, however, I have the same problem of having to almost completely redo sites that I’ve tried cloning. I guess I could see why cloning a site might cause some design shifts (although that kind of defeats the point of cloning…I mean, if I have to completely rebuild what I’m cloning I may as well figure out how to do it on my own using that site as inspiration). I’ve never seen anyone else complain about having to spend days reworking designs so it seems to me that I’m the problem. I would very much appreciate any helpful tips so I can stop wasting so much time.
I don’t think my read-only link will provide too much insight but [here it is]https://preview.webflow.com/preview/meli-sites?utm_medium=preview_link&utm_source=designer&utm_content=meli-sites&preview=ef1dbd753480a1bb59cba66c750818c5&mode=preview).
