Converting site to CMS?


Can someone please point me to any resources on how to convert a existing site built with Webflow, into a Webflow CMS site? Is this possible or do I have to start from scratch?

Thanks for any help / info!


You don't have to start from scratch. Just add collections, items, and then dynamic items and lists to your page. See the help center for tutorials.


It's super easy and you don't have to restart. You'll just have to turn some sections and blocks into dynamic content,

  • First, click the collections button on the left-hand side of the designer. Add a collection and some collection items to use within your dynamic content.

  • using a dynamic content list, drag it into your website and click on the element.

  • Then hook it up to collections, it'll ask you to select from a drop down.
  • Then adding whatever you want into the dynamic list,
  • and then styling it...

Here's a video I found:



Awesome! Thanks for the help / info / links! I'm glad I don't have to start from scratch, and I think I get how to create the blog CMS section with my current site, but I guess I am wondering how hard it is / what are the steps to upload it to my server (I use MediaTemple to host my sites).

I know with Wordpress there is a "one click" install, but I'm unclear of what is needed for Webflow's CMS. Sorry, I am a designer not a developer. Any further help / suggestions or video tutorials would be great!

Thanks again for taking time to reply!



As I'm a newbie here and I think about using Webflow, this information has convinced me as I find a possibility to convert site to CMS very convenient.
