Reusing parts of your page saves time and makes updates easier. To reuse things like headers, footers, and product recommendation sections, you have several options in Builder.
- A Symbol: perfect for an element, like a header, that's the same everywhere. Changes to the source Symbol affect all instances of that Symbol.
- A Template: ideal for an element, such as a recommendations section, that has the same structure but the contents differ.
- Custom code components: use these for custom solutions. Developers create and maintain these in your codebase and then connect them to Builder so creative team members can reuse them.
Edits only change the individual Template. With a Template, you use the same basic design over and over and update the contents in the individual Template instance without affecting the original Template.
- blog articles
- product descriptions
- product recommendations
- item lists
Builder comes with a variety of built-in Templates to get you started right away. To make more Templates that meet your use case, check out Creating Templates.
Your developers make custom components and connect them to Builder. The code stays in your company's codebase and creators can drag-and-drop, just like a built-in Template or Symbol.
- unique components
- components that already exist in your codebase
