Make Components available in "Edit only" mode

The feature

Add the ability to add and remove Components to the canvas when in "Edit only" mode.

My vision behind it 🚀

My vision is to have a Drag & Drop Website Builder inside the "Edit only" mode like Typo3, Drupal, etc.

This allows us to give our clients a User with the role "edit only" where they can freely build pages and add/remove/rearrange elements and edit content as they need.

To achieve this, we need 4 different features:
  • Make Components available in "Edit only" mode

  • Ability to add/remove pages in "Edit only" mode

  • New element "Dynamic Navigation"
    With this element you can create a navigation that automatically creates a new link in the navigation when you create a new page as an Editor

  • Expand the capabilities of Components

    • New property "Background Video"

    • New property "Lottie File"

    • New property "Color"

    • etc..

    Completely agree. The lack of this type of role/ability is what holds me off being able to sell Webflow to clients that want these abilities.

    The Dynamic Nav is also essential -- can't believe this doesn't already exist.
