Best way to structure CMS for this site


#1

Since the death of Muse I’m having to rebuild a website in Webflow. The site has around 150 pages which I’m aware pushes it over Webflow’s page limit. However, with the CMS generating most of the content this should be easily achievable.

I’ve built a few sites using the CMS but this one has me flummoxed. In a nutshell I need to build a site that has a LOT of nested product groups - if you visit this page https://www.connectcreativevisuals.co.uk/products-and-services/ you’ll see there’s x4 main product areas. Look at ‘Fire Safety’ for example, you’ll notice there’s 7 sub sections, click the first one ‘Fire Alarm Systems’
and you’ll see there’s another 7 further sub sections. This goes on for quite a bit!

I can’t get my head around the structure for the overall CMS - is this what the Reference / Multi-References are for?

Many thanks for any advice!

Yes you need to use the CMS reference en multi for this i made a little example for you :slight_smile: but there is probably another way to do this :slight_smile:

Thank you so much! I really appreciate that you’ve taken the time to not only reply but to build a sample - seeing it in Webflow like this is a huge help and helps me to wrap my head around it all.

I’ll have a good look through and report back with any questions.

Thanks again buddy :slight_smile:
