Congratulations! You just received a new website. You may be proud of what we have done (or your designer) for you. Now you’re going into the second stage of the project: Managing and maintaining the website. As long as you don’t need to change the structures of the website you’re free to update it yourself.

This is the most advanced Webflow Editor article so far. We are continuously working on adding new sections, and topics and making it as detailed as possible. Please use the table of content to orient yourself in the topics.

What is the Webflow Editor

The Webflow Editor lives in your published website. “It allows you to edit the content on your site directly on the page or manage pages and content through the Editor panel.”

You can also invite your copywriter or marketing manager to help you with it.

Setting up the Webflow Editor

  1. Select Editor.
  2. In the collaborator's section click on “+ Add collaborator” → add the email address of the new collaborator and send the invite.
    Sometimes sending an invite doesn’t work. Then copy the link next to the email and send it manually via email, Messenger, Whatsapp, etc.

Password must be a minimum 10 characters and must contain at least 1 number, 1 uppercase, and 1 lowercase letter.
