Webflow Editor

Webflow is a startup that was formed to answer difficulties that the current design industry was unable to handle. Webflow's no-code technology has transformed how many companies build their websites, but it has solved much more!

This document introduces the Webflow Editor, a tool for altering and updating published websites. It is the saving grace that relieves the load of website maintenance.

What precisely is the editor in Webflow?

The Webflow Editor is a tool that website owners and collaborators may use to change the content and appearance of the live site. Maintaining the currency and freshness of a website is critical to keeping users informed and engaged. The Webflow Editor was created on the basis that traditional methodologies were unreasonable and impeded the company's move from profit to productivity.

The Webflow Editor is an application that enables you to visually edit website content. This may be done through a URL that team members and customers can visit, or by utilising the Webflow Designer itself.

We've developed a list of Webflow Editor features that we really love. We use the Editor tool to manage both our own and our clients' websites, saving both parties time and money.

Using the Webflow Editor

Website Revision in Real Time


The live site editing feature makes website upkeep easier. Users may visibly amend the site's content by clicking where the edit icon appears. You may change anything, from the text to the graphics. These changes will not effect the live website in real time, but will be implemented after the related update is released.


Editing Buttons


Buttons, like the live site editor, may be customised in two ways. The author may change the button wording and link settings from the published website. This is significantly more successful than prior techniques, which included altering the code.


Limitations of Collaborators


Collaborators such as team members, clients, and even customers may be invited to make changes on the Webflow Editor through a URL. However, while using Webflow Designer, the designer may limit what colleagues may change. This ensures that no unauthorised changes are made.


Content Creation


The Webflow Editor allows site owners and contributors to not only post content, but also to work on incomplete projects. Other team members may work on unpublished articles and develop new pages that are not immediately published on the internet by storing work as a draught.


Content Publication


All changes made to a published website using the Editor appear in reverse chronological order. The site owner now has centralised access to all site-wide changes, which can be published with a single click.


What benefits does the Webflow Editor provide?


To begin with, the Webflow Editor is very time-efficient. Traditionally, changing a website required changing the code. They may now be performed using a graphical user interface.

The Webflow Editor allows the site owner to invite collaborators to the site to edit alongside other users. This speeds up project completion.

The Webflow Editor also gives the organisation back control. When problems emerge with a website, the owner may solve them using the editor rather than hiring external developers. This saves the company both time and money.

We feel these sites are worthy of your time!


Webflow University has a wealth of resources that make learning Webflow simple. We've included two movies below that we hope will help you learn more about the Editor.

Introduction to the Editor


This course will provide you a brief yet thorough introduction of the Editor. It describes how to access the Editor using the Designer as well as the URL, among other things.


Introduction to the Editor's Client Guide


This lesson is identical to the one before it, except it goes into further depth on the Editor. Both videos depict the steps you and your organisation may take to maintain your website updated and attractive.
