CMS Collection Page - Adding Links (not clickable on frontend/output)


I just got started with Collections and Styling Collection Page(s). Everything is going well. One of the items I’ll need to populate are links (so I inserted some link elements on the backend to the map to the final page for output).

For instance here’s part of my layout:

URL String Below it (i.e. “”)

In the example above the CMS brings in the content beautifully and I can style it, but it’s not yet clickable - but in the backend, I bring it in as a “Link” so I didn’t know if Webflow would add the link automatically and it didn’t.

Now if I manually wrap the URL string with Link Block - that works, but it carries the same link across all of the outputed pages (not what I am after)…

I just need the link to be the URL itself, and then link to that same exact URL.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Hello! Can you include your read-only link?

If I understand it correctly, you should also link that “link block” to the CMS “Link” field you created in the backend. Then each page will have its own button / link working properly. Hopefully this will help you :slight_smile:

Hello Reyneil - thanks for your input! You helped me solve the issue! I appreciate it, it was the “Link Block” that I need to map back to the link from the backend, and put a text item inside of that and I can optionally map content into there or make a generic name.

Super helpful, thank you good sir! :star_struck:
