Embed existing stacks?


(David) #1

I have a page with a series of stacks already existing. Is it possible to embed all of them into a new stack?

Thanks

If you have Stacks 3, you could make them a partial and add them to each page that way. See a video here about partials

SWhat about the basic 1 column stack? This is functional like a group.

Thanks to Zeebe and Robert. The thing is, I already have pages with lots of stacks. I want to embed them all into one big stack.

OK. I got it… Simply create the “big” stack, then carefully drop the other stacks inside. It would be nice to a multiple selection option…

@daviddelmonte Well their suggestions still hold water. Is there something specific about why partials or the magical 1 column stack won’t work for you?

I have a couple of websites where I have a big honking partial that exists on almost every page. The “trick” in my case is making sure my innermost stack itself was a 1 column stack containing no material. That way I can deploy this “meta” stack across all/most pages yet still have very different content as I can simply drag a markdown, text, HTML or other stacks into that 1 column at the innermost level.

Not sure what you mean by multiple selection, but you could do the same thing as above, but structure the partial so you are using more than one 1 column stack. It’s the multiple 1 column stacks where you’d drag in unique materials.
