We also did a complete review on it a while back if you want to find out more about it before reading about the new dynamic pages and eCommerce app updates below.
Dynamic pages will save you so much time! Take the Escape Rooms website project for example. Instead of creating dozens of pages, manually, with the same design but different content, for all the cities and escape rooms, dynamic pages helps you automate all that and simply draws the information from a database you create at the beginning of the project. Also, you only have to create the template design only once, and then all the other pages will have the design you created.
Basically, dynamic pages allow you to create separate pages that correspond to every individual row in your database table. Users can click on an item shown in a dynamic grid, and a separate page will open for that item containing information from your database table that you created. So, only one separate page is needed for this to apply to every row in the table, as the page will duplicate for as many rows as you have.
Setting dynamic pages for your website is easy! First, a dynamic grid connected to a table in your database must be created. There are guides on their website which show you how to do it, step by step. Then you will need to create a new page in your website which will serve as a “template” on which all of your rows’ individual pages will be based on. After this step, you will go to the Database and select the Dynamic Pages option. There are some settings there, you can see the guide here, and the final step is to simply design the page to your liking.
