In this article we will find out how to work with dynamic pages. In the editor mode, you will have access to all pages, sections and dynamic data of your website. You will be able to edit them or add new ones in a few clicks.

Add a new CMS collection page

Add your dynamic collections on your site by using the Webflow Editor. Open the “Collections” tab. The Collections tab lists all of your collections. Select and open a collection that you want to edit. Your collection will open in a new tab. You can see all of your collection items there.

Create a new page in the CMS collection

  1. Choose “Collections“ from the navigation panel.
  1. When you click on it will display all of your collections on your website.

Create a new page in the CMS collection

In the existing CMS collection, you can create a new page. The new page will have the same sections and fields as all other pages sharing the same CMS collection.

  1. By selecting a particular collection you will open a new tab that consists of all pages from that collection. You can add another page to the collection by clicking on the green button “+ New (name of the collection)”.
  1. In this new tab, you can create a new page.

The Slug (URL of the new CMS page) is the only field that you can not change later. Make sure that the slug is made properly.

  1. In a rich text field, you can add images, videos, audio files, bullet points, numbered lists, and more to your new CMS page by clicking on the “+“ icon.
  1. Create the page you have worked on by clicking on the “Create“ button or save it as a draft by selecting the dropdown
  1. You can publish or unpublish a page. To do so click on the dropdown and choose what action you want to perform.
You can unpublish page only when you have published all of your changes in Webflow Editor.

Edit CMS collection content

CMS (content management system) is a tool used to manage and publish dynamic content on your website. When you change or create content in CMS, the changes will be updated in referenced pages instantly. CMS is usually used for blogs, contacts, employee profile pages, etc.
