Updated with:

Backup & restoring: Latest 2 (free), Unlimited (any paid account or hosting)

Use of custom code: Disabled (free), Enabled (any paid account or hosting)

Unable to transfer a site with Paid Hosting to another account, without cancelling first

Please update with new category Exports and then a first item: impossible to use relative paths

What do you mean…? If you’re referring to this, it’s not a limitation but more like a bug.

Hi @samliew

Brandon doesn’t seem to agree this is a bug but a wishlist item. Fwiw, I agree with categorising this as a bug

@Brando

Just want to say how much I appreciate this thread. Thanks @samliew <3

I am no longer able to maintain this list as well as my own “Tips & Tricks” posts as I seem to have lost edit privileges…

Sorry about that @samliew, looks like discourse has a default time period for how long after a post is created it can be edited. I just updated that setting and you now should be able to update the post!

@nathan that’s perfect, thanks!

This is a great list, thank you! I’ve found it really helpful to review before quoting client projects to make sure I’m not promising anything we can’t deliver.

I’m hoping you can keep it updated, it’s such a good reference. Noticing a few of these limits that (I think) have been removed:

  1. No file field (uploads) for Webflow forms.

  2. No in-built support for wide screen designs (container fixed at 960px max-width)
    _This one is still true, but has a good work-around: https://discourse.webflow.com/t/activate-1200px-large-screen-media-query/611_

  3. Unable to copy assets/styles/elements from one project to another.

Thanks!

How does this work with Ecommerce hosting? Do we get more CMS items?

No, you pay more to get an e-commerce store, but trade-off for lesser CMS items than website hosting.

Standard is similar to CMS hosting, but with a lower limit of 500 items instead of 2k items.

Plus/Advanced is similar to Business hosting, but with lower limit of 1k or 3k items respectively, instead of 10k items.

See fine print on new pricing page here https://webflow.com/pricing

Not to mention the prices are for beta sites only. In future e-commerce store hosting will increase when more features are released. You cannot switch back to normal website hosting from e-commerce hosting easily (you will have to delete all your e-commerce bindings, collections, pages, before you can downgrade back to CMS/basic hosting).
