I have been using Webflow for a short time and am amazed at how simple everything is to get up and running - coming from a very basic background in HTML / CSS for portfolio purposes. (I used indexhibit before but was after more complex features)
I want to take my website “to the next level” and some of the features I want to integrate I believe lend themselves to “CMS” or dynamic web pages, rather than static.
For now I have made a basic “project” page that I can easily duplicate and add content into bit by bit. but I have a feeling CMS would speed this process up and also unlock some new features that I am also after. Just to make sure I was wondering if some one could clarify;
For starters I am hoping to essentially duplicate the example and then begin adding my own personal functionality. The thing I really like about the example is the ability to click through certain fields within project pages (project type, team member, location etc.) and be taken to a new list of projects that have those similar characteristics (same project type, same team members worked on, same location) … I would also like the “front” or “main” page to operate as a “news” page and be populated with the main image from each project - if that project has recently been edited. so that newly edited items appear at the top of the page…
These are some of the basic features I am after. Now - will using CMS instead of static pages help me out in this regard - or am I missing the point entirely… from what I understand, the next step is to create a “project page” as a “CMS Page” like a template, similar to the base project page I would duplicate when doing this as a static page… then as I populate the information in my created fields for each project… the project pages should automatically then be generated…
