I have a CMS collection of about 500 items and I use Finsweet’s CMS filtering to enable the users to filter through it on the page. Each item has a field called “Countries”, which features a bunch of countries in the format of “Argentina, Brazil, Spain, …” and so on. It can be 1 country or it can be 50 of them. I want to give users an option to filter through these items by country, such as when a user selects “Spain” from the select menu, the CMS is filtered to display the items in which the “Countries” field features the word “Spain”
The issue with Finsweet CMS Filter (If I am understanding it correctly) is that it only returns exact matches. So if a user selects “Spain”, the “Countries” field has to be exactly “Spain” for the filter to work. No other words are allowed.
Now what I want to do is to be able to somehow create a filter that would be less “strict” and search for the occurrence of a specific country in the “Countries” field, not an exact match.
Any ideas on how I can do so would be very much appreciated. If there is a way to somehow customise Finsweet’s CMS Filter to allow for this behaviour it would be absolutely amazing, but if not, I would be really happy to find out any other solutions to this issue. (Not sure if I can include a read-only link since it’s a client project, but I tried to explain what I am trying to achieve the best as I could)
Thank you so much in advance for having a look into that, Webflow Community!
