I fundamentally misunderstood the CMS implementation

Is someone able to help me short-circuit some trouble-shooting by explaining to me why my approach is wrong?

This is the first time I have used a CMS of any kind. I created a CMS collection, I added a CMS list to my existing mock up - and it worked and looked as I expected:

I then added more items to the Collection, and it started looking like this:

https://preview.webflow.com/preview/cardisbroken?utm_medium=preview_link&utm_source=designer&utm_content=cardisbroken&preview=cb4e88f8d0e7981c936d27c7ef769f09&workflow=preview

I thought that I was going to copy and paste the card multiple times, and then select which item from the collection I wanted to use. I was very wrong. :slight_smile:

I feel like I am missing some element of styling the overall layout of the collection in the document - but I have the individual card already looking fine.

Can anyone talk me through this? Otherwise I will be going back to the drawing board to figure this out. Really appreciate it!

Thank you,
James

Hi, the structure of HTML is wrong. The proper way is explained in this video: Designing with Collection Lists - Webflow CMS tutorial - YouTube

Appreciate you, will give it a try!
