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 get the most out of this document, you should have:

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

Create a special page on your site specifically for Symbol editing. This is what the Builder preview opens when you create and edit symbols. It's important this be on a URL directly on your site, so all previewing and editing are accurate.

In this example, this page is named /edit-symbol.

  1. Go to Models and choose the Symbol model. 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, read Making a Symbol.
  2. Enter your site domain at a specifc path, such as/edit-symbol, for example https://my-site.com/edit-symbol.
  3. Click Save.

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.

For more examples of what you can do with Builder, check out the Blueprints, which cover varied use cases at a high-level with code examples.
