I’m in the process of evaluating Webflow for planning & prototyping embedded hardware web applications (i.e. server is running Linux on a small box not connected to the internet -for example think of your typical home router setup screens).
I’ve gone through most of the tutorials but I can’t seem to find the answer to a rather basic question, I’m hoping someone can point me in the right direction.
Typically there would be about 4 basic page designs and maybe 20-40 pages in the system. Common elements in the basic pages would be combinations the background, menu/navigation, and status information. When I create a new page how do a base it on a “master” (sorry not sure what the right term is here) so that if we want to update the (lets say) background we just change it on the master? Or if we want a new page we just create a new page and attach (derive?) it from the appropriate master?
Symbols let me have common objects across the site, but I’m looking for the equivalent with regards to the pages themselves. e.g. I would create a set NavBar symbols for each of the possible NavBars, but what I want to do is something like "change all pages based on Master Page A to use NavBarXX instead of NavBarYY"
I did look at the CMS related topics but those don’t apply here. Each one of the 20-40 pages are different in terms of the objects that are on them.
Hopefully I explained it clearly enough - I’m still learning what webflow can do. Thanks for any advice/pointers.
