Since the new pricing is announced, what is the new post limit? A more comfortable 20,000? Or unlimited? I wish there was a proper explanation as to why there is a limit to begin with. It seems like the Webflow devs have decided to sacrifice lots of usability to maintain really fast site loading times for everyone. It makes me wonder how good the servers actually are with all these limitations. More questions are risen when you consider the fact that the only file uploading allowed is images. I would much rather have zero limits on anything and pay/charge extra for another company to host sites.
The limitations of Webflow will quickly slow its growth. It’s obvious that Webflow has grown a lot since the introduction of the CMS, but either the development is not fast enough or the focus is misunderstood by newcomers to Webflow and therefore a huge audience is finding development in the wrong areas. From what I can tell, full CMS integration with the remaining components (sliders, etc) and support for more CSS customization outside of what the UI currently supports (custom HTML widgets and CSS in the site head/footer or page head/footer are poor excuses for not providing an easier way to add custom styling - this gets messy, confusing, annoying) are critical for Webflow to continue growing.
Professionals and amateurs can both use Webflow, but what sets it apart so much is the amount of freedom and intuitive user experience compared to other editors. Among all though, the limitations are becoming a huge burden. It’s almost like saying, “the majority of consumers don’t need gigabit internet speeds”. Yes, the majority do not, but if you want to keep your audience growing and revolutionize the web, these limitations need to stop. Limitations always inhibit growth of oneself and others. The internet couldn’t be what it is now if all of America were still on dial-up. It’s only the fast speeds we now have that can help it grow.
And I like how Webflow’s own website has no limit. C’mon, it’s clearly possible.
