Make elements unclickable natively 😱

Less
custom code — easier development! Now you can use pointer-events: none natively in Webflow just by clicking a button in a styles panel.

This is a useful feature to make elements unclickable, hence disable their “highlighting”.

If you want to learn more about pointer-events and how it works, then this short post on CSS Tricks explains it well!

P.S: I know that Webflow released lots of many cool stuff, and I still didn’t write anything about them — I’m trying to be more active now, and really want to talk about native localization feature in Webflow.

Adobe abandons $20 billion acquisition of Figma 😱

Both companies are mutually terminating their merger agreement due to anti-monopoly regulators in UK and EU. Adobe will be required to pay Figma a reverse termination fee (break-up fee) of $1 billion in cash.

Each of these companies stated that they are unhappy with the fact that they cannot complete the acuisition — “we all wanted it, but didn’t manage to do so” and “we told regulators both of our companies operate in quite different markets” (which is a complete BS, obviously) 🍷

I’m happy that the regulators struck a nerve — CEO Figma is unhappy, because he cannot cosplay as Scrooge McDuck, but Figma won’t be worsened by Adobe’s decisions at least, which the latter is infamous for.

Channel photo updated
Hey, folks! 😙

It’s been a while since I’ve been active on the channel. Didn’t post new content, I was just helping people in Webflow communities, but that’s it.

Some of you may know, some may not, but my main goal with the blog is to be honest and transparent, to write about the issues I face — simply put, I don’t run a typical commercial blog where I showcase how great of an expert I am, what projects I have, or post pics me being next to palm trees and telling how I landed $30K client.

That never sat well with me. When I started out, I wanted to see raw stories, real, unrefined — not Instagram or LinkedIn posts smothered in filters and corporate talk.

Surprisingly, such content is scarce, and I understand why — it’s hard for me to be completely open, let alone for others. However, I see value in it, which is why I strive to create such content. Sometimes I might not disclose or share everything going on in my life with you, but the most important thing is, I don’t lie. That’s why, in my blog, you can see my true self.

So, what’s the point?

I’ve been grappling with various issues for quite some time now, which is why there’s been a shortage of content. Life is tough, I get it. The past six months, even more, have been tough — really tough. Right now, I find myself in the same position as I did in 2020. It’s a terrible situation. My mental health has been in shambles for a while now, and I still haven’t reached out to a therapist, though I really need to.

However, I’m working on myself. It’s a very challenging journey, but there’s no other way. I’ve finally started going to the gym — I’ve put it off for a long time. It’s helping me, mentally too. It’s a distracting me from the constant battle with inner self, barrage of thoughts, after all.

Apologies for the vague message — I simply don’t want to delve into details. I think I'll share the specifics later, but not now.

Nevertheless, I have some good news — both for you and for myself! I’ll share it in the next post.

I’m resuming my creative activity 🤩

I’ll be publishing blog posts, posting YouTube videos, working on my products, and sharing the progress with you!

Gonna start with a little challenge: create one post per week, at least a small one. The goal is to make it into a habit.

I think I’ve bored you already with this magnum opus of a text, so Iet’s continue to the announcements.

What’s next content-wise? 🆕

🖥 Live build: a website for a pastry shop with interactive (generative) 3D with CMS.

Live builds are live streams where I’ll do everything from scratch — including both design and development. The streams are educational in nature, but I will mostly talk about some specific stuff. The purpose of them is not to teach something huge, like how to make this or that site, but to show the process of making specific solutions, and talk about some nuances that come up along the way. However, you can always ask questions on stream or in my group chat.

The first live build focuses on Spline, so I’ll make an overview of the tool, its native integration in Webflow, and how to connect 3D scenes to Webflow CMS.

Time and date: this/next month, but I don’t know the exact date yet — I’m in the process of switching internet providers at the place I’m currently at.

▶️ Stream and cloneable: disassembling my first Webflow site — geor.gy.

I wanted to show the “insides” of my first ever project on Webflow, for a long time: to show how I designed and developed it, and to talk about how I started out.

This will be quite a chill stream! I will show you how the site is organized, we will analyze how animations work, and I will answer your questions throughout the stream.

Also, I will make this project into a cloneable, so you will be able to clone it into your Webflow workspace and do whatever you want with it!

Time and date: this month, before the live build (probably).

Lesson and cloneable: a single-screen landing page on FullPage.js.

My first full-fledged lesson, I guess! I’ll tell you how to make a site where the content will change while scrolling, but the user will perceive it as if everything happens within one screen.

I’m not sure what format I’ll choose for this lesson yet — most likely just a single video. If you have any suggestions or questions, post in the comments below this post!

I think this will be a really interesting project, that you can also clone into your workspace and work on it however you want. Just, please, don’t present it to clients as your own — or you’ll get into troubles.

Time and date: TBA.

I’ll talk about my projects in the next post!

My project updates ⭐️

The post below will be a shortened version of the main news.

💬 “365 days” — my small private community.

I have finished setting up an early version of the private community, and will be sending out access to all early registrants soon. At the moment, the community is a group chat in Telegram with topics feature: there’s a variety of them, such as “Webflow” and “Discounts” — a huge range of discounts on different services, including mine. Private community is a place where I publish posts ahead of time and create exclusive content for subscribers only. There’s a separate topic for feedback and support.

Invites to the group chat will be sent out within a week ⚡️

You can buy early access to the private community forever for $36,5 — it will become a subscription at $5-10 per month in the future, so get an infinite access now if you want to be a part of the community. You’ll also get a couple of extra perks like a unique badge. Send me a DM if you have any questions about it or payment → @alaverdyan 💵

By buying access to the community you help improving my blog and projects, so thank you very much for your support! 😍

💪 “Make it come true with Webflow” — my course on freelancing and Webflow.

I can’t share the progress of the course development as there’s not much to share, sadly. The course is immensely huge, especially considering that I want to make a really polished educational material, and not to slip into your typical info-guru-bullshit course.

However, in addition to the course, which, by the way, is a product, so you will get updates for free, I will also create additional content for students. So I’ve decided that, while the course is WIP, I’ll be releasing exclusive mini-lessons and live builds, and so on.

Invites to the group chat will be sent out within a week ⚡️

You can buy early access to the course forever for $30 — it will probably cost around $699 on full launch. Send me a DM if you have any questions about it or payment → @alaverdyan 💵

⬆️ Personalized mentorship.

I decided to try myself at mentoring: aimed at beginners and those who already know how to work with Webflow, but aren’t confident in their skills. Already had a couple of mentorship sessions, I think it will be interesting!

Mentorship is a session of up to 2 hours when we work through your problems, whether your studies or client projects. Each student has their own Notion page with recorded videos of our calls. Everything is as simple as possible, because I don’t want to burden anyone with additional complexities, so the format is accessible — just come, tell me about the issues, and we’ll figure out how to solve them.

It should be taken into account that we can talk about non-Webflow related things, like client communication or creating animations in Spline, but this is not the focus of my mentorship right now. Please keep that in mind. I’m only planning on teaching Webflow for now.

The mentorship launch will be in test mode — I will accept a maximum of 5 students. Monthly payment, 4 sessions per month (1 per week). Currently, a one-month mentorship costs $130. Those who bought access to the community or course will get a 15% discount. If you want to get a personalized mentorship, DM me → @alaverdyan 💵

You will be able to sign up for a two-week mentorship in the future, or just pay per session. Test students will keep the old price for a certain amount of time if it goes up.

I’d appreciate feedback on the mentorship — I think it’s a cool idea and I love teaching people one-on-one. By the way, I also provide Webflow training for teams, so if you’re a company that wants to nurture Webflow experts in-house, then DM me or shoot an email.

That’s it! There’s a lot of hard work ahead, but I hope you enjoy my content and projects!

I also want to make a micro-announcement of two new projects:

• A platform for Webflow professionals and clients with a database of cloneables, templates, articles, tutorials, experts, jobs, and more. This will be my first big project, so I’ll start with a simple MVP — then we’ll see how it goes. If it works, great, if not, I’ll get an interesting experience and you’ll get content, haha.

• My own agency. I won’t say anything else about it yet — it will be an experiment, so to speak.

Subscribers of my private community can expect more information on these projects in the near future. Also, they will know all the “intimate” sides of the projects, such as my income and expenses.
Just did my first email newsletter ✉️

Early access owners of the course or community should get the email now. I wrote a summarized version of the posts above and explained what will happen next with the newsletter.

Also, I’ll send the group chat invites soon, so wait for one more email!

If you didn’t receive an email for some reason, then DM me, we’ll figure it out → @alaverdyan.

Please, check your “Spam” folder — if the email is there, then mark it as “Not spam” and let me know about it. I’ll be really grateful!

Sent out the chat invites ⌨️

Finally, so happy for the launch (even though an early access one)! Everyone who bought the early access to the course and community before February 7th, should get an email with the invite links.

Folks, if you didn’t get the invite by any chance, check your “Spam” folder — if the email is there, please, mark it as “non spam”. I appreciate the help!

If the email isn’t there, then DM me → @alaverdyan.

Webflow made a massive update to their Figma plugin 🆕

Now you can sync your design system, including variables and components, with your Webflow project, which is kinda nuts, not gonna lie 🔥

It’s magic! Way easier to manage multiple projects that leverage the same design system in Figma thanks to this update.

You can watch a tutorial about this Figma to Webflow plugin update by Webflow University → https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O9zGylVljbI.

That being said, the Figma plugin is still not the thing I would use on a constant basis. Do you want to know why? Should I make a stream explaining what are the new changes and, well, why I’m still not a total fanboi of the plugin? 🧐
