This'll enable us to better manage the layers and know which item is which...
The Webflow Team comment on: "You can name your styles & classes accordingly to name your elements" is not a good solution, precisely for the the reasons that Dave Foy clearly explained.
Using class names to label sections in the navigator is NOT an acceptable solution here.
For consistency and easy maintainabity, I always give my 'section' elements a base class of 'section'. That way I can update that class in one place and update all 'section' elements across the site. Plus, I can create various combo classes (e.g. Section Section-Small) and maintain those globally too.
If I give each of my sections a class name for non-styling purposes (e.g. Section-Hero, Section-Testimonial, Section-CTA) then I lose a lot of easy maintenance and it's just generally bad practice for easily maintainable CSS.
The ability to just 'label' section elements in the navigator would be a godsend, independent of the class name.
The name in the navigation bar is the same than the class name.
@Nelson, I understand. I think it would just be nice to not have to add a new class to rename your elements in the navigation section of the platform. Kind of like photoshop layers. If there are thousands of elements or layers you want to be able to differ one section from another uniquely without adding more classes. A feature that isn't needed but would be sweet. Cheers!
Hi Tal Pistol, I also think that it would be great if webflow allows to change class names within layers panel. Not sure why Nelson is not getting the point here (kind of defensive).
I see. The name in the navigation bar is the same than the class name. So I would need to have a seperate class for every element if I like them to have different names on the navigation abr, right?
You can name your styles & classes accordingly to name your elements.
