The question is then how is it best to have this work as a reusable element? So that we only have to change the sidebar menu once, rather than on each page?
I’m just a bit unsure as the best way to go about this though as it’s a page template, rather than a block element, or whether its something that should be done in the Header Details section in the Canvas admin portal.
Could we then instead just use the side menu feature of this Dashboard Page as a reusable element? So as to have the Sidemenu on each page? And then on this side menu have the links to the different pages, such as the projects, milestones, and tasks.
Hi, sorry to revive an old topic but I actually was looking to do the same thing as @dann9; if I understand your curiosity @cmarchan, you’re proposing to make one page (and therefore one sidebar) and just have the content section different for each link from the sidebar? In this scenario, you’d have to load each page in the background, correct?
Forgive me as I’m new to Canvas and Bubble itself.
I’m building an app with several sections, a calendar function, reporting, documentation etc. so I wanted to leverage the portal sidebar, commonly, throughout the app but I didnt want to have to have the user load the whole app in a single page, but rather move around the app, loading only that specific page’s content.
Does that make sense? And does it still make sense just to build a single page?
“Why would you need more than one page with the same left nav menu though?” I think I’m confused here as well. As a saas product, focusing on left-hand nav within the app itself, shouldn’t it be feasible to treat this left-hand nav the same as a header navigation?
Based on how I’m seeing “Convert into a reusable element” done, it should be simple enough to right click and make that selection; however, I’m somehow not able to even right-click the element to do so
Yeah, I feel like I just must be doing something wrong. Within Bubble, I am attempting to select the entire dashboard navigation element to make reusable but somehow cannot. Definitely an issue in bubble not canvas, though.
