Maximum Number of Pages Reached

Hi everyone,
I’m a first-time Webflow user and I purchased a magazine template to start my web building.

I’ve just selected one of the pages and amended it with the content I want but now I want to duplicate the page and use it as a template for additional magazine pages.

Each time I try to duplicate the page I get an error message saying I have reached the maximum number of pages for the template?

Can anyone help a desperate newbie on a deadline? :grimacing::pray:t3:

This is probably the result of having 100 pages. That is currently a hard limit with Webflow.

No, I have this problem too right now. The template is brand new and I’ve deleted so many pages there are only about 15 left. Still, I cannot duplicate any pages; it keeps saying “You’ve reached the maximum amount of pages for this site”.

How can I fix this? I need to duplicate pages inside this template for it to be viable.

Was this resolved? I’m having the same issue with a template out of the box. Template has 53 pages, I deleted two pages and keep getting the 100-page restriction whenever I try to copy a template page so I can keep a working backup while I try something. Any help is appreciated. Share link below:

Hi. Yes! My page was still on the FREE plan, which only allows 2 pages. So, I had to buy a website license first and that opened up the template.

is there any update on this @WebflowCommunityTeam - Just bought a template and I can’t even create a new page? arghhhh #frustating

@LvnLife are you on a Free account plan?

I’m on the free plan.

I use a free template.

I can’t create a new page.

Hey guys, same problem. Cant see any clear solutions on this thread. I’m on the basic plan. I only have 12 pages and can’t create new ones, even if I delete existing.

Please help : |

hi @jonnystuart1
when I make a new page on your shared link I get this message:

You’ve created all the pages allowed by your free plan. To add more, upgrade your site plan.

Strange, since you mention you are on the Basic plan. I’d send an email to the supportteam:

Any news on this? I purchased a template as well a hosting plan, and can’t do a thing with it. This is very frustrating, and makes me think this platform is not worth the hype. Can the @webflow team help?

I also want an answer to this please. Do I need raise a support ticket or can I get a reply here.

I would resent paying for additional pages. However, I would still prefer to pay for additional pages instead of having no option at all.

Now and then the smartest people do the stupidest things. This feels like one of those things.

Please give us a reply or some pricing info. Thanks

I am not aware of any option to increase the static page amount above the current limit. . On multiple occasions Webflow has stated that this is a hard limit. Could they change their mind at some point? Anything is possible. Until I hear different from Webflow staff I would assume 100 is still the limit.

When purchasing a template it creates a new project with all the pages in the template. This project then can be customised to create your new website. Template purchase is a single use licence so it is intended for just the one project.

Please note that if you are on a free Webflow Starter account plan, and your templated project does not have a Site plan added, then the project will be limited to 2 pages only. You can still access all the pages in the paid template (unless deleted) however will not be able to duplicate a page, or add a new page without upgrading your account plan, or adding a site plan to the project.

So it is generally better to customise the existing pages in the template if you do not wish to add a site hosting plan yet.

If you are getting a page limit error after adding a site plan (hosting) to that project, or have any additional questions about page limits, please reach out to Webflow support on our contact page at Webflow Customer Support | Webflow University, so we can help to check further.

Note that as Jeff mentioned above, the 100 static page limit is currently a hard limit and cannot be increased. For more information on page limits please see Pages panel overview | Webflow University.

Have they ever explained why, apart from wanting to annoy people. Because if people are willing to pay for it then I can’t understand why not.

@RyanUK - Not directly that I am aware of. Since 20 collections lists can be on a page with 100 items each, the rendering time can be significant. Probably the same reason nested collection items is capped at 5. Performance.

Thanks. I have a problem. I am trying to create a very large learning content site. Even though it’s in my interest to create all the pages using the CMS it limits me a lot. I am going to run of of pages very quickly probably before I launch. You could say may be I was stupid for choosing Webflow. But there was a lot I liked about this platform. And I have used WP for more than 10 years, and it has it’s amazing flexibility, but admin nightmare, and so on. Each has it’s downside.

I suppose I expected issues with all platforms. But this one seems daft to me. I don’t consider myself an expert of any sort. But even then, if they can create great technology like this, then a solution for page issue exists.

I have always found tech companies that remove the human element very frustrating. I suppose I should not be surprised that almost all tech companies end up being “the computer says no”

@RyanUK - Honestly I don’t use Webflow for large sites. With large sites I need flexibility on templates (many not a one) and URL structures that WF does not offer. Fortunately there are lots of other excellent choices. One can even leverage a design exported from WF and migrate to other CMS offerings. I wish you success on your project.

Thanks. You are right. It’s a bad idea to use Webflow for larger sites or sites that will have a lot of content. I suppose I wanted simplicity. Maybe I was hoping for too much. I should have known better given the issues I have faced with other platforms. But this page limit has genuinely shocked me. Lots of things I can get my head around. I have built many WP sites and comes across hosting to batabase issues etc, but a page limit!!! I genuinely did not think anyone would even consider putting such a restriction. I suppose it goes to show, I know nothing :slight_smile:

Anyway, Thanks Jeff. Take care.
