Is there a way to link a button to a specific CMS collection page:
Example: I have 3 buttons on the page and I want to link each button to their specific CMS Collection pages.
Is this possible? I’ve looked and searched and can’t find an answer.
I have been wondering the samething. I don’t think it’s possible on the same page.
@TheStayHomeDad this depends. Would you like to link to a specific collection or a collection page? IE yourwebsite/blog or yourwebsite/blog/article
Are you trying to do this in a collection list or on a static page?
On a static page, add a button and link to the address, add yourwebsite/blog for example, to the URL.
In a collection list, you’ll have to style a text link to look like a button and add the links that way.
There’s no way to do this dynamically at the moment.
Although you could always add a ‘link’ field to your collection and bind the link to the text link element that way.
Let me know if you’ve got more questions.
So I’m trying to link my portfolio pieces so that I can utilize the CMS aspect of creating new pieces and updating old ones easier.
Can I link a static page button to a specific CMS portfolio page?
Can I link the button to that specific page but not have the CMS portfolio element added to the page?
@TheStayHomeDad the way to do that is to add a button and add the link to the URL field. The same way you would add a link to an external website.
So, add a button, add the link and you’re good to go .
Here’s how http://somup.com/cqiqlGejGx
So this works for the blog but I can’t get it to work for the portfolio.
Is there another way to set this up or does it not work for the portfolio linking?
@TheStayHomeDad could you share your read-only link, here’s how https://university.webflow.com/article/sharing-your-sites-read-only-link, that way I can take a look at your specific website and see what’s going on.
Thanks for the link @TheStayHomeDad, could you tell me the exact page you’re trying to add a link to? I saw your ‘portfolio’ cms collection so I get that part. I’m trying to work out where you are linking from so I can get you the best way to do this. Also, did you delete your blog? I thought I’d take a look and see if it worked out but I couldn’t find a blog collection.
So it’s the “More Info” buttons… I want them to link to each specific Portfolio page:
Example: acal.webflow.io/portfolio/test (I’m using this link that is setup)
It gives me the Not Found error.
I haven’t checked your links, but when you want to do this, there’s one CMS strategy, mostly.
So say you have a collection of works for your portfolio. But on the homepage you want to link only 3 of them, the important ones.
Create a switch field, or an option field in your collection. Something that you’ll call “Featured”. Say it’s a switch.
On your homepage, drag a collection list, limit it to “Posts that have the Featured switch ON” and add a button link in the list item, linked to “current work”.
Is it what you’re trying to do?
