"Related Projects" cms collection module not working. Pls help!

Hi Webflow Gurus,

Please help.
So I have this “Case Study/Project” collection page. View here.

Each Case Study collection item has a multi-reference field called “Related Projects” where I point to three other specific Case Studies.

The problem is that on my collection item page, my “Related Projects” module at the bottom cannot reference those specific 3 case studies. Not sure why the filters can’t reference those three.

When I apply the filter:
“Related Projects contains Current Case Study”
it does NOT show the specific 3 case studies and instead shows other case studies that have the current case study referenced in “Related Projects” multi-reference field. The problem with this is that my client may want to show Project A is related to Project B on Project A’s page, but not necessarily want to show that Project B is related to Project A on Project B’s page.

When I apply the filter:
“Related Projects contains Any Related Projects of Current Case Study.”
it does NOT show the specific 3 case studies but instead shows something different (which I don’t understand).

Did I reach the limitation of webflow multi-reference collection here?
Am I understanding filters wrong?
Do I need to set up my related projects module differently?

Please help!

Did you get the issue resolved?

If not, just FYI, the conditional visibility works on collection pages not normal pages. On normal pages you have to do the collections a little different. The explanation is too long for text, but if you need help holler at me and see what’s going on.

I have not gotten this issue resolved yet.
And not quite sure yet how conditional visibility can help in this situation.
Still looking for answers you or anyone has any ideas! :slight_smile:

Hmm gotcha… going through CMS collections usually takes a long time for members… I suspect that’s why no quick response :slight_smile:

But you mentioned referencing. I assume you watched the University tutorial, if not check it here:

Notice on that page after the video, at the very bottom:

Why can’t I show multi-reference field data in a Collection list?

At the moment, you can show multi-reference field values only on a Collection page, and not within a Collection list. Support for nested Collection lists is planned. Vote for and subscribe to status updates of this feature request.
