Hi Framers. I'm wondering if there's a simple way to remove or create new history items in the excellent FlowComponent.

For example if I open a new page from an overlay menu, but don't want showPrevious() to reopen the overlay, instead going back to the previously viewed full page.

Make sense? Am I thinking about this in the wrong way?

Great question! A possible way to approach this with the current features of the FlowComponent is to use multiple flows. In what you describe there seem to be flows in 2 ‘directions’ so to speak: going to and from the overlay and going between pages. Here’s an example project showing how you could approach this:

Nested flows is a brilliant idea. Totally sorted me out. Thanks Eelco Lempsink!
