New CMS templates are blank!

Newbie to Webflow -
I can edit the template and add new entries to the stock CMS collection and all the template remains intact.
When I make a new CMS collection, however, the template page is blank with no design at all. Any help on why this is happening and what I can do to fix this would be most appreciated!

p.s. I haven’t published my site yet so I can’t share a link

Welcome to the community @xangle!

I’d recommend you check out the Designing with Collections portion of the lesson below that goes over utilizing your CMS content:

Basically there aren’t any “templates”, you’ll need to layout out the page and bind things like images and text elements to the Collection data as needed. If there’s a page you want to duplicate, then just copy/paste the elements you’d like, but an easier solution (which may have already been setup on the template) is to drag/drop Symbols.

Feel free to reach out if you have any other questions but a read-only link will help in giving any more specific instructions :+1:
