CMS slug interfering with folder slug

I am making an affiliate site for a client. The site will be in 4 different languages with content depending on the country/language chosen because the promotions for every site that this project will affiliate with.

The demand in a top 10 dynamic ranking list which will be updated in the collection. I have solved this by adding a “number input” where the list sorted with number (smallest to largest) This list needs to be different and will differ in content, promotions and t&c’s. Because of this i decided to make multiple collections

Every language which will have their unique landing page with a static page and slug like en/se/nb/ca (the four countries). When/if clicking on one of the promotions the user will be linked to the collection page of this campaign/partner. I have made 4 different collections, duplicated with the same Collection fields but for every language since the collection-page needs to be different, regarding the language.

I have also made a folder with the different slugs for the different languages. Reason why I am doing this is because the client demands all static pages for every language needs to start with the correct slug for each of them. The client also needs to have other static pages for every language. Like for example: mysite.com/en/contact-us. To do this I need to have the pages in those folders.

The CMS collection pages for all sites (where users can read more about in their prefered language) also needs to start with the corresponding language-slug. For example: mysite.com/en/sites/this-one-site but webflow does not allow me to the CMS slug to /en/sites because there is already a folder with that name.

I really hope this makes sense. My previous explanation was probably better…

@StefanBlendulf to clarify, you are using the CMS, right? If you’ve got a CMS collection set up for your reviews, you can simply create a page, a regular page outside of the cms, called ‘reviews’. On this page you would add a collection list (a block from the elements panel) and bind that to the collection you created. This would allow you to show the title of each review, an image, a button… and would click through to each individual page within your collection.

Thank you. I should have made it clear, which I did not (EDITING NOW) that: I also, already have a group/folder named “reviews” for another purpose. I want/need more than just “reviews/item1”. And that Static Content is already in that folder. So the problem now is that the CMS of “/reviews” is interfering with the Group/folder of /reviews" when I am trying to choose slug.

:thinking: okay, so could you merge the content that’s on the static page with the content for the collection? It’s kinda hard for me to figure out what the best option would be without seeing the actual content.

I am noticing that this is nothing like what i first asked for.

Edit: i have now edited the whole post. Sorry for the mess

ah, I see! yes, that makes sense and is also not possible at the moment :confused: . New features are worked on all the time but I wouldn’t hold your breath. Sorry!

Any updates on this?

@plavookac there is now a feature to nest collections so this could help you achieve the website.com/slug/slug/something. I haven’t played around with it yet so I can’t help you but it does now exist :slight_smile:

I really don’t see the advantages of using nested collections. Is it just me that are confused?
