What's the difference between 'CMS' and 'Basic' templates?


#1

When creating a new project webflow asks you to select a template. There are two basic options: Basic and CMS

What is the difference? I tried both types of templates and they look exactly the same to me. Am I missing something?

Hi,

CMS (Content Management System) templates are driven by 'collections' basically databases that allow you to update/create various parts of the site (ie a blog) quickly and easily. Basic templates are static so you would need to update every piece of information on the site by hand, individually.

Projects with CMS items cannot have basic hosting as well.
