I am trying to create a entrance page for my blog post with the link website.com/blog that lists all my individual posts. Since I created a cms page called ‘blogs’ webflow is saying I can’t create that entrance page because the url is being used. It should be website.com/blog/blog-post. Anyone know how to do this without creating a different url for the entrance page?
Current entrance page is website.com/resources/blog-post. Would like to change /resources to /blog.

Ah yea… there’s a trick to it
You have to create the static page FIRST. Then create your collection slug with the same name. That get’s you past that validation error and allows you to successfully do it.
Here’s an example:
I took this approach for the example above.
Here’s the project share link to see it in action. If you already have a collection with the name you want, you’ll have to do a little renaming dance, but it won’t be bad
