How to link the content to the panel?

Hi everyone, this is my first time of using kirby, I am stuck on how to get the content file linked to yaml.
here is my content file in .txt
Title: Landed


BannerTitle: The future has landed


BannerText: And there are no hoverboards or flying cars.
Just apps. Lots of mother flipping apps.


IntroHead: Odio faucibus ipsum integer consequat


How do I create a Yaml file for this?

hi @John2202 and welcome to the forum.

i guess you are looking for help to create a “page blueprint”. the docs feature a great collection of examples to get you started:

from you content i would say you need the following field types:

  • text
  • textarea
  • text

You need blueprints for each type of of page.

You then add fields to these blueprints as needed.

The issue is I am totally new to this, I wish i can see sample code on how to fetch each content text to the panel using yaml

The “easiest” method might be to use the page-preset blueprint: https://getkirby.com/docs/reference/panel/presets/page and add your fields to it:

title:
  type: text
bannertitle:
  type: text
bannertext:
  type: textarea
introhead:
  type: text

and go from there.

Wow! I appreciate your contribution, I will get it into to Yaml file now.

Now i have issue creating columns
here is my code so far

title: landed 

#Preset: page

columns:

  main:

    width: 2/3

    sections:

      content:

type: fields

fields:

  bannertitle:

    type: text

  bannertext:

    type: textarea

  introhead:

    type: text

  

  IntroT1:

    type: text

  introt2:

    type: textarea

  introt3:

    type: textarea

  rightsbhead: 

    type: text

  rightsbtext1:

    type: text

  rightsbtext2:

    type: textarea

  LeftSBhead: 

    type: text

  LeftSBText1: 

    type: textarea

  LeftSBText2: 

    type: textarea

I don’t know if it’s just a copy&paste issues, but your indentation is completely messed up. the fields must be indented under type: fields

title: landed 

columns:
  main:
    width: 2/3
    sections:
      content:
        type: fields
        fields:
          bannertitle:
            type: text
          # rest of fields
  meta:
    width: 1/3
    sections:
      section1:
        type: whatever

Thanks for the previous support but i am still stuck on

  1. how to toggle off and on a page section
  2. contact us form.

Check out this recipe: https://getkirby.com/docs/cookbook/forms/basic-contact-form

This I don’t understand. Could you please explain what exactly you mean?

what i mean by the toggle is that: I have a section of the homepage (HTML) that i want to be switching on/off or enable/disable using the toggle button on the panel but i do not know how to go about it.
I am yet to get the contact form though but i wanna try it on a live server
