+ Field not available in Components

Hi Webflow Community,

I have a page header sitting in a collection page.

I have an HTML embed in the page header. The + field works fine when the page header is not a component. As soon as I create a component out of the page header, the + field disappears.

Anyone have any solutions to this?


Here is my public share link: Webflow - SOS Heavy Equipment Repair

e.g. page header in the Services or Repairs templates

The reason the + field doesn’t work when you create a component is because the + field is dependent on the collection page it is on. If it is a component you could put it on any page and then the + field wouldn’t know what collection it’s referencing.

The work around to this would be to add a collection list and then nest the embed in the Collection Item element. This way the collection list is specifying which collection is being referenced and it’s no longer dependent on the page. If you do this, you should be able to turn the header into a component without any problems.
