Integrating CMS Data

You can use Builder CMS Data to create structured reusable data across your site. You can manage the data schema, add, and remove fields within the UI and teammates can create and remove data items in auto-generated structured forms.

Examples include:

This tutorial shows you how to add editable navigation links to your site header.

Prerequisites

To follow along with this tutorial, you should have the following:

  • a Builder account
  • an app in the framework of your choice with the appropriate SDK installed

Tip: If you need to create an app, follow the steps for your framework in the Create an app section of Integrating Builder Pages.

Add header navigation link data to your app

Creating a Data model

In the Builder UI, create a Data model so you can create navigation links.

In the Models section of Builder, Click +Create Model.

  1. Select Data.
  2. Enter Nav link as the name for your new Data model.
  3. Click +New Field.
  4. Name the first field label and give it a type of Text.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 to make a second label named Url with type url.
  6. Click Save.

Creating Nav link content entries

Use the new Data model to create Nav Link content entries.

Go to the Content section of Builder.

  1. Click +New.
  2. Select Nav Link.
  3. Give it a label, url, and name.
  4. Click Publish.

To make more links so that you can iterate through the links in your nav list, click the three dots and select Duplicate. Repeat steps 2-4 for each link you create.

The video below shows how to make three Nav Link entries.

Go back to your website and refresh the page to see your nav links. After your links are rendering, try adding new content entries in Builder. For each new entry, the new link populates the nav.
