Allow editors to drag and drop to build pages from symbols

For the editor, it would be helpful for more advanced clients to be able to build pages based off of the symbols you've created. This could work similar to squarespace in a way. With the new symbol overrides, I have created section blocks as repeatable elements for my clients. This would be helpful if they need to change/add/edit the structure from a high level but leave the overall layouts and design to us Webflow designers.

    @Aaron: maybe add "Symbol" in the title? So that this topic is easier to find for others?

    Yes! I agree! Here my thoughts:

    A sort of Page Symbol Editor for Collaborators:

    • Create new page

    • Drag and drop Symbols

    • Edit symbols with custom content

    Currently working on a project where the CMS structure is overly complicated (especially for the client). For some websites just copy-pasting pages with predefined symbols/components is a better solution.

    A component based approach in combination with the Editor would be an awesome feature.

    Request: extend the Collaborator Editor with a sort of page-component hierarchy editor

    YES! Especially with CMS powered sites.
