Notes of website design and construction

  1. The Pages & Menu area list the pages on the website and the menu organization

  2. Some pages are hidden so that they do not show on the menu bar.  They are linked to from the content of other pages.  Hidden pages have a small eye symbol with a cross through it.  Pages may need to be hidden in both the desktop and mobile views.

  3. Pages with the small page symbol to the left of the page name are static pages.  WIX allows 100 static pages per site.

  4. Pages with the small link symbol to the left of the page name are dynamic pages.  WIX has no limits on the number of dynamic pages.

  5. Pages are divided into sections.  Within a section, there are strips and within strips there are leements.

  6. The page sections can be named and linked to from within the same page from, for example, a page menu.  The sections can also be linked to from other pages.  Sections are great for organizing the content on a page.  Sections can be inserted and deleted without impacting other sections on the page.

In the Cemeteries & More Section

1.  The pages display a combination of text and a list.  The list is most often a repeater but sometimes a table.

2.  A repeater allows more information to be displayed and the pagination allows for input of a page number to move easily through a large collections.

For Cemeteries, the text paragraphs and titles come from Cemetery Text collection.  The repeaters are populated from the appropriate cemetery collection.

For Births, Marriages and Deaths, the text paragraphs and titles comes from Vital Records Text collection.  The repeaers are populated from either the Births Records, Marriage Records or Death Records collections.

Al other text paragraphs and titles comes from Florida Record Collection Text collection.  The repeaters or tables are populated from the appropriate collection text for the subject matter.

The Florida Record Collection is added to the page by selecting the page title text and connecting the data to the Florida Record Collection.  Then inside the Florida Record Collection image on the page, add a filter for the specific collection being displayed on the page.  Then all the following text will come from the collection row for that specific collection.

The page title is taken from the Collection Title column.  The Provided by text comes from the column by that name

In a separate section, 2 to 4 paragraph 2 box are populated from the Source, Paragraph1, Paragraph2, Paragraph3 columns for that collection.

How to create Detail Pages where 2 collections are joined on the same page.

Examples are the pages displayed when the View Marriage & Source button is used on the list pages.

  1. From list of collections, select ... in the circle to the right of the appropriate collection.

  2. Select create dynamic detail page.

  3. On the new page, use the provided repeater or delete that one and create another.  

  4. Connect the text paragraphs in the repeater to the collection elements to be displayed.

  5. Add 2 more sections to create the page title and paragraphs.  Add the Vital Records Text collection, the Cemeteries Text collection or the Florida Records Text collection to the title or paragraph section.

  6. Add a filter to the Text collection to match the collections elements.

  7. Connect the titles and paragraphs from the Text collection.

  8. Add a 2nd filter to the Text collection where the Title in the Text collection is equal to the Source or Source of Record field in the collections elements.  For example, Text collection Title is Memorial Presbyterian Marriages.  The 2nd filter connects this Title with all the rows int he Marriage Records collection that have Memorial Presbyterian Marriages in them.

  9. Where it is possible to have the same name within multiple Records collections, select the ... for the dynamic detail page and add source to the URL.
