Symbols are a type of section model you can integrate for editing on your site or app. They help you elegantly reuse content across many Builder Pages and Sections. For more information, see Intro to Symbols.
To follow along with this tutorial, you should have the following:
Add symbol editing to your app
First, create a special page on your site specifically for symbol editing. This is what the Builder preview will open when creating and editing symbols. It's important this be on a URL directly on your site so all previewing and editing is accurate.
This guide calls this page
Update your symbol preview URL
Go to Models and choose the Symbol model.
Tip: If you don't have Symbol here, make sure that you've met the prerequisite of having created a Symbol. For step-by-step instructions, see How to Make a Symbol.
Enter your site domain at this new
/edit-symbol path you just created, for example
You can use
localhost when testing locally, then change to a hosted URL like your QA or production URL once your code updates have been deployed.
