Is there a setting I can change that will allow me to use "file" or "folder/file" to refer to a URL?


#1

When specifying a URL in CMS, I always need to enter e.g. "mysite.com/file" or "mysite.com/folder/file" in the CMS collection URL field.

I want to know if there is a way I can use something like "file" or "folder/file" instead.

Thanks for your time.

Hi @madeinlondon Welcome to the community :slight_smile:

At this time, you cannot directly upload files into the Webflow Dynamic Collection manager. However, you can:

  1. create a new link field in your collection
  2. upload it to a third-party file hosting service like Dropbox or Google Drive.
  3. Then you can copy the public URL of the file
  4. paste that URL into your dynamic item's link field
  5. lastly, design your dynamic list with a link that goes to that link field

Hope this helps :slight_smile:
