Sending data to a new page

Hi bubblers. I have another questions. I’m sure it’s very simple but I just cannot figure it out. I am trying to send my data from a searchbox to another page when they choose to go to the new page.

When I attempt to choose which data to send, the searchbox option is greyed out and I have no idea why. I believe this is what I need to choose. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

The image you shared is not expandable, can’t see the elements on that size to help you.

SearchBox is an element on your page - it looks like a text input… it is greyed out because it does not have Type notes_of_praise, it is probably Text Type.

You will need to Do a search for to reference the note_of_praise that you are wanting to send to the new page. If the user’s entry in the text input is relevant to which note_of_praise is sent then you should add it’s value as a constraint in the Search.

Sorry I’m pretty new to this and I don’t quite understand what you mean. I know the searchbox is technically a text field, but I don’t see why I shouldn’t be able to send that text to another page. If someone could take a look at the app, I’d appreciate that.

I would really recommend taking this Bubble tutorial titled ‘Sending Data to Pages’ if you have not already: https://bubble.io/page?type=page&name=index&id=learn&tab=tabs-1&lesson_ref=9&no_arrow=true

You can send your text data to another page. But once you have your head around passing Things between pages you might not want to (or only sometimes).

You will need to open up access for people to access your app. But as this is basic I would suggest best step is to go through some tutorials - these threads are a good start:


I realized with the tutorial I had to set the type of content to pass from my home page and create a text field in the page I wanted the data passed to.

Thank you for your help.
