i would like to create a website and i want have one cms collection with people. I would also like to collect on the website what these people have to say about certain topics. So on the one hand I want to have individual pages for each person, that’s not the problem, that’s easy to implement with Webflow.
Also, I want to have a single page for each person with each topic. for example, I have person X and I have 10 different topics on the site. I want to have a single dynamic page for each person with each topic.
For example, if I had 10 topics and 100 people I should then have 1000 individual pages.
My best idea so far is to create a people collection and have a separate collection for each topic and organize my database with AirTable.
I have searched for categories and subcategories for Collections, but have not found anything.
What is the best thing for me to do?
I am open to any suggestions.
Have a fantastic day.
Welcome to the forum, Janek!
/people/john?topic=Finance. Unfortunately, that is not optimal for SEO.
Otherwise, if you want a dynamic page for each person/topic pair, then you’ll need a collection in the CMS that has one CMS item for each pair, e.g.
Person_Topic. That’s the “Webflow” way of doing it.
It might be hard to manage all those person/topic pairs in the CMS. It might be much easier to manage that database in Airtable and use a tool like PowerImporter to automatically sync it to Webflow
thanks for the reply.
I will do the second option with AirTable.
if you think of a better solution, let me know
I have another question.
Is it possible to have 2 dropdown search fields on my home page so that you always have a person/topic pair and then are always directed to the appropriate page without a “search results” page?
