Hello, a client has asked for this, he wants users to be able to filter/find specific kinds of art – is it possible to achieve something like this in Webflow? Or a workaround?
That’s not something that you can do in Webflow natively, but you can definitely do that with Jetboost. I just implemented a deceptively in depth search and filter system for a client at careerpuppy.com.
Cost is super low, integrates perfectly with Webflow, works like a dream, and @cspags is a champ when you need help!
Just remember that when you load everything up (lots of items) on a page and then filter them, you can easily run into performance issues in the browser. There are limits regardless of the filtering scripts/solutions you use.
Hi Jeff, thank you for your reply. I don’t think it actually “filters” from loaded contents. I think it’s more like it chooses from a database.

All Webflow pages consist of static content that is generated on publish. A reason why there are limits on the number of collection lists on a page. So any script that “filters” results is acting on the DOM and its elements. There is no connection made to the database where your data resides and a published site. Only in the designer / editor is there dynamic connections.
Thank you Kevin, I will look into this! You are a champ!
Thank you Jeff! I will have to look into some kind of workaround, or post a new question here - how to explain to a client that I cannot achieve what he wants! lol
Thanks for the mention and kind words Kevin.
The career search page you did is an impressive implementation of Jetboost!!
Useful discussion not only for me but I think others see this useful discussion for them as well, thank you!
