Singles

Singles can be thought of as a single page with a purpose (i.e. home page, blog overview, contact form), hence the name Singles!

Introduction

Singles are great for single purpose pages to show or collect important information. There are several other use cases. Let's a take a look at a few:

Use Cases

Singles
  • Landing Page
    • Website home page.
    • Redirect your users to a Thank You page after filling out a form.
    • Redirect your users from a promotional newsletter link.
  • Overview Page (to supplement Collections).
    • After creating a Collection of blog posts, next you may want to create a home page for your blog.
  • One-Off Pages
    • Depending on the needs of your website you may have several footer links with some one-off informational pages (i.e. F.A.Qs, Shipping Information).

Configuration

Initially, a page will only start with a name field. This can further be expanded with additional fields. Let's discuss some configurations and see how they can be leveraged to fit your needs.

  • Name - Give your Single a memorable name
    • e.g. Blog Overview, F.A.Q.
  • Handle - Developer-friendly identifier (advanced usage).
  • Description - Give a short description to help describe the purpose of the Single.

Customizations

  • Name Label - Change the label of the name field to best suit your needs.
    • e.g. you're hosting a book club event and want Book to be the label of the name field.

Routing

Configurations to alter how the page is experienced from the front-end.

  • Route - Provide a URI pattern or string to access the Single.
    • e.g. F.A.Q page - faq => /faq
    • e.g. blog landing page - blog => /blog
