Place Collection Textfields into List Items


I’d like to pull dynamic text from a series of Collection fields and place them into a series of List Items on the Collection’s template page.

For example, I’ve got a Collection with 5 textfields named Text 1, Text 2, Text 3 and so on.

On the Collection template page I’ve created a List and would like to display Text 1, Text 2, Text 3, etc. as List Items within it.

Is that possible? I’m not seeing an option to do so.

Hi @ggunn - Welcome.

Currently you can’t bind item fields to list items in the designer. You can with custom code. You could create an embed with HTML (Unordered List and list Items). Insert your CMS fields as value bindings from the Embed element. You would need to handle blank items with some JavaScript, if you had them.

The issue that stopped this for most people was the fact that Webflow encodes HTML in a collection template embed. I wrote a blog post on with custom code that works around this. So it is doable.

If you need it and can’t do it yourself, you could contact me, and maybe we could work something out.

Ahh okay, I follow you. Probably more trouble than it’s worth, in this case.

Thanks for your help.
