Wix Editor: List Builder Is No Longer Available. Use Repeaters InsteadList Builder is no longer available. If you have existing lists on your site, you'll still be able to use them. To create new lists, add a repeater.
Repeaters let you present a list of items that have the same design and layout, but different content. For example, it’s great for featuring your new stories, business listings and more.
Add a repeater and change the content manually, in the same way you would do with a gallery or strip. You can also turn on developer tools to connect your repeater to a database collection and get the content to automatically update.
Here’s how: Go to the Editor > Add > Click Lists & Grids > Choose a repeater & edit anything like text, images & more
