Page and Collection Settings in the Editor

To date, creating and updating SEO, Open Graph, and RSS settings has been a designer’s job—insofar as you can only manage those key settings inside the Webflow Designer.

Today, we’re happy to say that’s no longer the case.

Because now you can access SEO, Open Graph, and RSS settings for all your static pages, Collections, and Collection items—right inside the Editor.

So now your clients and content colleagues can take care of these vital content settings all by themselves.

To get started, just open your site in the Editor, then click over to the Pages tab (the first one to the right of the Webflow logo, or your whitelabeled logo).

Say hello to the redesigned Pages tab in the Editor

There, you’ll see that your site’s pages are now divvied up depending on whether they’re static or dynamic (i.e., part of a Collection). If a page is part of a Collection, you’ll see it listed under the Collection’s name (plus “Pages”).

To keep things tidy, we list up to 10 pages or Collection items, then paginate the rest.

To manage a page or Collection’s settings, just hover over the item, then click the Settings button.

There, you’ll see:

SEO Settings

The place to go to create and edit your page’s meta title, description, and check out a preview of those settings in action.

All the SEO settings from the Designer, now in the Editor

Open Graph settings

The place to manage what people see when you and others share your content on social media sites that use Facebook’s Open Graph.

‍Now your Collaborators can update Open Graph settings whenever they need to

For static pages, that’s all you’ll see.

On dynamic pages (i.e., your Collection items), you’ll gain the ability to use dynamic Fields to fill out your SEO, Open Graph, and RSS settings.

And, as you might’ve guessed, you’ll also get access to your RSS settings:

Manage your RSS feed settings right from the Collection in the Editor

One thing to keep in mind: When you enter a Collection item to manage its various settings, you’re actually editing this info for all items in the Collection. As you’d expect.

Just remember that Collection item settings affect all items in that Collection, natch.

That’s all for this update. Enjoy the new functionality and, as always:

Happy designing!
