Updating exported posts

To automatically update posts that were changed on your Setka account, you need to create a new Zap and set Setka as a trigger and Webflow as an action.
To update posts automatically, set up the export first. Make sure, post IDs are gathered.

Step 1: Create a new Zap

1. Open your Zapier account and click Make a Zap in a left-hand corner;

3. Choose the connected account from an appeared Webflow account: (required) list and click Continue.

Step 7. Mark out the data for Webflow

Settings will lead you to a Setup action block. From an appeared Blog code block, choose the Webflow website where your Setka posts will be exported. Choose the needed CMS Collection from a Collection list.
Then replace Webflow post fields with Setka post data. Set the following:
1. External ID data for the Item field.
2. Title data for a post's title field (if available).
3. Author Name data for a field that contains the author's name (if available).
4. Replace the field with a full version of a post with the data according to this template:
<div class="w-embed w-script">
[Body HTML]
<link rel="stylesheet" media="all" href="[Assets Styles Common CSS]" />
<link rel="stylesheet" media="all" href="[Assets Styles Layouts CSS]" />
<link rel="stylesheet" media="all" href="[Assets Styles Themes CSS]" />
<script src="[Assets Plugins]"></script>

4. If you want to save updated posts in CMS Collection as drafts, choose False in a Draft field. If you want to publish your posts instantly, choose True. The same for an Archived field: choose True to draft the post or click False to save it as published.
Save changes by clicking Continue.
5. After that, you will be offered to test updates in Webflow. Please note that by clicking Test & Continue, a post will be updated in accordance with edits from your Setka account.
Click Skip Test to pass testing.

Step 8. Activate the Zap

The setting is done. You can activate automatic updates with the help of a switch box in the upper right-hand corner:
