I recently built (on Webflow) and launched a website directory of brand and digital product design studios, you can see it here
It’s had quite a good response online, and now I’d love your help with some things I’d like to improve on the site, including bugs and the potential new features.
First off, the site uses the CMS grid and the Atttributes filtering system created by Finsweet. If any of you have used this before, I’d love to know if it’s possible to retain the filters when you change pages in the collection. At the moment, if you select filters and then change page, it resets.
The other thing I’d love to hear from any of you is about adverts. I want to add a tile into the CMS grid which would feature a sponsored post, and always stay in the same place (e.g. always be the 4th tile on the top row of the grid). What is the best way to do this?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, and I hope you like the site
If you’ve applied the CSS grid directly to your Collection List, you’ll probably need to insert this item using script. I’d create it as a DIV outside of the Collection List, and ID it ad-1. Also ID your Collection List ( not the wrapper or item, but the list itself ) as list-1.
Then in /body custom code, this will move it into your collection list.
Interested to hear what you find out. Perhaps Finsweet can tell you. I don’t know how it would work in Webflow… in another system I use, I would have a dynamic URL that passes the search terms as a parameter from page to page.
I can’t access the designer while traveling, my laptop screen is too small to navigate it. However if your screenshot is referring to the element at the very bottom, it doesn’t look like it’s inside your grid or collection list at all. Even your pagination is above it.
Perhaps you can describe more clearly what you’re trying to do and what it’s not doing, and someone can take a look at your readonly link.
