I’m wanting to receive some advice for a website I have been working on…
In short the business that I work for prints and publish’s books.
On our website we will display certain books which will have categories associated with them.
My Webflow project currently has a CMS Collection for my Books and all of the relevant information. As you all should know because I have Books in a Collection I can then edit my Collection Page Template only once to design the pages for every other book.
Now… my question is.
Can (should is the more pertinent question) I create a Collection Template for my Categories? I have planned to have a category page i.e “books for teens” which will display all of the books that have that category in their CMS database.
Currently I have 5 individual pages for the categories I have (which are all filtered accordingly), sorted by A-Z as well. But it means every time I make a design change it doesn’t affect all of the other pages (obviously, because it isn’t a template).
From what I gather, creating a CMS Category I then have to add each book to the category, meaning that if I have 300 books for example (which fortunately I will be listing way less) that it’s highly likely one will be left out. The system I had setup earlier had 5 Categories to choose from in the Books Collection… and visually as I go through each book I know that each book has been assigned a category (particularly if that field is required to be published).
Thanks for your help, it’s greatly appreciated!
