Enhance your Flotiq experience with plugins
Exciting news! From now on, you can easily customize your interface and streamline workflows thanks to Flotiq's easy-to-use plugins. Plus, you can also create your own plugins!
Together with the lifecycle webhooks and the recently published hosted webhooks, plugins take Flotiq's flexibility to the next level, especially for more complex projects and applications.

Ready-to-use Flotiq plugins

We have prepared three ready-to-use plugins for you:
  • Custom links: This plugin displays a button with a link in the content object editor. The link will be supplemented with data from the currently edited object, allowing you easy access to a preview of where the content is used.
  • Netlify build: Simplifies integration with Netlify hosting. You can trigger Netlify builds within Content Objects forms and quickly navigate to your Netlify pages from the Flotiq content editor.
  • Slug: Automatically generates browser-friendly URLs for your content. This plugin simplifies the process of creating slugs for your Content Objects. It’s particularly useful for automatically generating slugs based on existing data within a Content Object, such as the title of a blog post.

Custom plugins

Need to add a client's logo to the Flotiq dashboard or create a high-contrast version? With Flotiq, it's possible! You can develop your own plugins tailored to your or your client's needs.
