Page used to have a data source

Hello Bubblers,

I recall that the Page used to have a data source, but now it was removed. Any reason why that happened?

Thanks.

Huh. If they did, that’s before my time with Bubble. Is it possible you are thinking of reusables (which have a type and a source). In the case of pages, they can have a type of course:

image

… but the SOURCE for the page is always the unique ID of a Thing of the page’s type, appended as the last item in the page’s URLs path. E.g.,

This page is of type “Listing” and it is showing reservation information for the Listing whose UID is highlighted.
