No way to create index page for page-folders [Not working for folders - 2020]

SEO - Organize your site hierarchy:

Do you have enough pages around a specific topic area that it would make sense to create a page describing these related pages (for example, root page -> related topic listing -> specific topic)? Do you have hundreds of different products that need to be classified under multiple category and subcategory pages?

The missing “index”:

For now, on webflow the “real” parent page of page-folders always missing

/company ===> Index for all childern pages about company

/company/index.html 
/company/team
/company/our-vision
/company/history
/company/why-us

The solution, for now, is to create a page with URL like /company-pagelist and put under this page links to “team” “our vision” “history” and “why-us” (But this is not the “real” parent of this pages - wrong sitemap tree).

Correct Example (No way to create this on webflow):
https://moz.com/products
https://moz.com/products/pro
https://moz.com/products/local

I was hoping this was now the case so I would not have to hack my structures. Not working for me. Ezra, can you confirm that it is working for you?

Hi. I test again you right (My mistake - webflow only change this idea for CMS slug).

CMS - working :+1:

By CMS - collection slug (blog)

Blog pagelist (Single page):

By folders - not working (No way to create index for folder) :-1:

This is a “huge” SEO issue by the way (Harder to create site with a clear hierarchy).
And get for example sitelinks:

Google also likes to have a sense of what role a page plays in the bigger picture of the site.

Thanks for the update. This totally sucks and screws my ability to sculpt my page rank with silo structures. I can’t see a good reason they do this. Brings pain on many levels.

Another reason I avoid Webflow for content rich SEO sites.
