Collection Item Links to Tabs

Hello, Community,

So far I’m having a blast with webflow and was able to find all the answers I require in forums. However, this one is a tough nut and I hope you will be able to help.

Basically, I need links for different collection pages -> specific tabs for different links.
I read that it is impossible, tried all the different ways suggested by posts from the past, nothing works.

My logic doing this is creating embed code in a collection item --> add a button with SLUG-NAME(by clicking on top, since embed code is in collection)?tab=tab-name
The links that I get after pushing look as if they should work, but in the end, they don’t open a specific tab. They do open a collection page, but always the same tab. I tried different variations with /slug-name#section, etc, but had no luck so far.

Am I atleast looking in the right direction? Is it possible to achieve what I want?

Links are in “home” page, “price & equipment”; “photos”; “specifications”; “review” and end goal is to get to “Cars” collection page and different tabs inside of it.

Thank you for attention!

Solved it myself, if anyone is interested - here is the custom code to Pre Header:


var Webflow = Webflow || [];
Webflow.push(function () {

// adding a tab to a link, which has link set to “Current Collection”

this.href += ‘?tab=tab-custom-class’;

var tabName = getParam(‘tab’);
if (!tabName) return;

$(’.’ + tabName).triggerHandler(‘click’);

function getParam(name) {
name = name.replace(/[[]/, “\[”).replace(/[]]/, “\]”);
var regex = new RegExp("[\?&]" + name + “=([^&#]*)”),
results = regex.exec(;
return results == null ? “” : decodeURIComponent(results[1].replace(/+/g, " "));

Just change link-custom-class to your prefered ones and tab-custom class to tabs.
Make as many classes as you have tabs.

Hope this can help,
