How To Use Alias Blocks

Let's say you have blocks with identical content on various pages that require regular updates. Is there a way to update them all at once? Yes! The T213 Alias block comes to the rescue!

Explore what the Alias block is and how it can help speed up content management on your website👇

An Alias block is an exact duplicate of the original block, connected to it by ID. This is handy when you want to add regularly updated blocks, such as a schedule or a list of recent blog posts, to different pages of your website. It will save you a lot of time since you only have to edit the original block once.

User Case
Suppose you have a website with 100 pages and want to include a Promo section on each one, updating it once a month. To do this, create a primary block containing current promotions and add its Alias blocks to other pages. Then, any changes you make to the original block will automatically appear in the Alias blocks.

How Do I Set Up Alias On Tilda?
1. Add and customize the block you want to be displayed on multiple pages. It can be placed anywhere on the site.
2. At the bottom of the block's Settings tab, find its ID. This is a unique identifier that links an alias to the original block. Copy the ID.
3. Place the T213 Alias block from the "Other" category where you want a copy of the block to appear. In the Alias block's Content tab, paste the original block's ID you copied earlier.

Done! Now, when you make changes to the original block, they will be automatically applied to the Alias block as well. There can be any number of aliases, and changes will be applied to all of them. Don't forget to publish the pages after making changes.

Keep In Mind When Setting Up Alias
• You cannot edit an Alias block directly; changes must be made to the original block instead.
• If multiple Alias blocks refer to the same original block, any changes made to the original will affect all linked Alias blocks.
• If you hide the original block, all Alias blocks will be hidden too.
