Subfolders/categories for cms collections


#1

I have been using the CMS option for a bit now and love it!

There is the forced use of the Slug for ex:

I am trying to make a site www.abc.com with singapore, malaysia and other countries.

For SEO, I am trying to benefit from having long tails such as www.abc.com/singapore/

But for the CMS - I am forced to have it to the parent - abc.com

Does anyone know what I can do for this? The other option is include Singapore in every title so that it reads

www.abc.com/blog-posts/singapore-article v/s www.abc.com/singapore/blog-posts/article.

Try creating a dynamic collection with a slug of "Singapore", then all articles within it will have that as its parent folder. :smile:

@PixelGeek - That was exactly the way I was thinking, but then I would need other collections that work under it.

This is the challenge. I create the Singapore slug, then go ahead and add other collections as dynamic lists, but when people click on them I will lose the /singapore/ and it will default to the CMS slug, and I wont be able to SEO index them.

It would be fantastic is webflow fixed this and allowed collections to sit under other collections. I am sure its not the most complicated thing for you guys lol.

How many different media types are you planning to have for each location? If it is just articles then @PixelGeek solution will work for you.


#5

I have 3 media types - aka templates that I would like to use.

Persona (Family or Self) > Geo > Type

If I just create a slug for singapore - and place one big rich text there - I can customise any page - they will all look the same - I can only do manipulations at the Rich Text Level

So, Singapore will have Family and Self Sub pages - but sub paging the content is not possible.

Looks like webflow wont solve this problem for now. Hence I am still stuck at Squarespace and not migrating although I really want to.

Necessary Feature for proper urls.

Should be
=> ... .com/category/sub-category/collection-item
For Example
designstudio.com/work/web-design/some-project

Currently
designstudio.com/work/web-design (that links to following)
designstudio.com/projects/some-project

I love Webflow, though confusing & bad for SEO in this case. Hopefully webflow team can get this added soon.

Hopefully the Webflow team adds this to their numerous releases.
