CMS item redirect to external link


Hey guys,

I was wondering if anyone knew how to use a CMS item to redirect to an external link? I have columns set up that references to collection images, and I’d like those images in the column to redirect to an external link upon clicking. Is there a way to do this?

Thanks in advance!

Here is my public share link: LINK
(how to access public share link)


You simply need a url field for each post item the link. Then create a link block that is bound to that url field in the link block settings. Cheers


The link block can be overlayed on the collection item image?


You can wrap the image with a link block and connect the link block to the url field.

Thanks Piter, big help! How can I made the item heading the same dimensions as the link block?


You are talking about this heading?

You want the heading to be full width?


Yeah, exactly. I’d like that heading to be the same width and height as the image, so on hover anywhere over the image, the heading appears as well.


You can do it differently and I think is a better way to achieve what you want. Let me record a video and I will share it here.

@cjgetty You can have multiple actions in one interaction. Here’s the screen record where you can see my approach >

Definitely check the Webflow course about interactions > A lot of useful information and you will understand how many things you can do.

Thanks so much Piter!


WOW! This just blew my mind, man. I had no idea about the extensive functionality of interactions. Definitely going to play around with them more.

Thanks so much again, Piter!


Webflow is mind blowing :grin:

Have fun bro :raised_hands:
