I’m having an issue which I think is related to an update to the Webflow designer. On my business website (mineralsound.com), I’m using tabs to fade in/out the different sections. I’ve used diamonds (text blocks) to separate the tabs for design & readability. When I was building my website, I just typed the diamond symbol into the text block, and dragged the text block in between the tabs. The site works perfectly like this.
A few months later, I went back into the designer to push a couple updates to my site. However, as soon as I clicked on the tabs section, all my diamonds jumped out of the tabs area into a different section of my site. When I tried to drag them back down, I got this message:
Only Tabs links can be moved inside a Tabs menu.
I emailed support about this, and I heard back that the error message is correct: you can’t use non-tab elements inside the tabs menu. However, I was able to do this without any problems before. So now I’m in a spot where I either have to not (never?) update my site, or update it and lose my current design. I’ve asked the Webflow team if it’s possible to restore the ability to use non-tab elements in the tabs menu, so I’ll see if I hear back.
Until then: could anyone suggest a workaround? I’m basically looking to have non-clickable diamond characters between my tabs, so that they’re clearly separated visually.
Thank you for any and all suggestions!
