I’ve come to a complete road block in building my app because I can’t get to grips in any way with linking up elements & content to data (in all aspects of). I’ve studied courses and watched no end of YouTube videos but it isn’t sinking in.
Either I’m super thick or this most critical part of building on Bubble is inadequetely explained - with, of course, the exception of getting very generous help on this forum!
If anyone knows of a source of learning for people like me who are struggling (dummies), which doesn’t cost multiple hundreds of pounds, then that would be much appreciated!!
Maybe not quite what you were looking for, but that’s how I learned: when I saw something in a template that I didn’t understand how to do, I would download it and examine how it was built.
While this contributed to my learning, it also enabled me to see many alternative methods.
For example, the answer to the question you asked in the above post is in this template, with a slight difference. It just doesn’t send any data from within the Repeating Group. Whether it is RG or any other data container, there is no difference. If in RG you use “Current Cells Thing”, if you are sending parent group data you use “Parent Group Things”. Or you use the name of that container, the data you associate with the container.
I shared the relevant page of the relevant template. Please check the Send data to page action. It sends a user’s data to another page. And there is much more in this template. Once you download the template the editor will be at hand, you will be able to see how a lot of things are built. Yes, it’s free!
If you have more questions about workflows in the template, please send them to us under this post. We try to be as helpful as possible.
I might be being negative, but I’m not sure I’m going to be lucky enough to find an app that does what I’m looking to achieve, and then to reverse engineer it. It’s certainly an area I will look into though.
Naturally, I’d much prefer being at a point where I understand the processess myself without having to resort to examining similar apps for technical inspiration, but of course beggars can’t be choosers.
I completed John Gregory’s course (who btw is an excellent teacher) but, sadly, I came out of it with the feeling that I didn’t really undersand half of what I was being taught, despite ultimately (and this time luckily) producing a fairly acceptable replica of his work.
…I might give Henry Legge “a go” to see if that sparks anything in my ageing brain
