Wix Dynamic pages and Databases
In Wix, dynamic pages are pages that are generated automatically based on a set of rules or data, rather than being created manually. This allows for the website to automatically update and display different content based on specific conditions or criteria.
For example, a dynamic page in a Wix website could be used to display a list of products for sale, where each product has its own page. Instead of creating a separate page for each product manually, a dynamic page can be created that pulls product information from a database and displays it on the page. This means that when new products are added to the database, they will automatically appear on the dynamic page, without the need to manually create new pages.
Another example is where a Wix website can use dynamic pages to show different content to different users based on their location or browsing history. For example, a website could use dynamic pages to show different promotions or events to visitors based on their location or browsing history.
Dynamic pages can be created in Wix inside the editor(or editorx). The editor allows users to create and manage databases, connect forms to the databases, and use the data to generate dynamic pages.
Databases in Wix are a way to store and manage large amounts of data, such as product information, customer details, or event information. They can be used in conjunction with dynamic pages to automatically display different content on a website based on specific conditions or criteria.
In Wix, there are two types of databases: collections and datasets. Collections are a type of database that can be used to store and manage different types of data, such as products, events, or blog posts. Each collection can have multiple fields, such as name, price, and description for a product, or date, location and title for an event.
Datasets, on the other hand, are a way to connect a database to a specific page or element on a website. By connecting a dataset to a page or element, the website can automatically display the data from the database on that page or element.
To create and manage databases in Wix, you can use the Wix editor or editorX, which allows you to create and manage collections and datasets, connect forms to the databases, and use the data to generate dynamic pages. Additionally, it also allows you to perform actions on the data, such as filtering, sorting, and updating the data.
Databases and dynamic pages in Wix are powerful tools that can help to make a website more interactive by allowing website owners to store and manage large amounts of data and use it to create pages that automatically update and display different content based on specific conditions or criteria.
