Sort CMS by page views?

I hope this is the right category.

Anyways I have a ‘satire news site’ that is gaining some momentum in views. So I figured this would be the best oppturinity to put the ‘most viewed articles this week’ on the side of the site , with the sites containing the most views with in the week. I’ve seen this done with other sites but no necessary web flow ones.

However I was still curious if there was chance of being possible?

Hey @De_Aguiar,

Unfortunately it’s not a native feature of webflow to sort CMS items by ‘most viewed’.

However, my suggestion to best achieve this would be to just add a ‘rank field’ (Number Field)’ to your CMS collections, and you can sort that ‘most viewed’ section by applying a CMS filter to the collection that is based on that rank number. So based on your analytics / traction on articles you can adjust that number to change the popular articles

I wish I could suggest a custom code alternative but I am not aware of any solution.

Thanks,

Tom

Hi!

My name is Talha, and I’m building the following webflow extension: https://www.flowytools.com/

It will let you sort CMS items by views. So as long as each of your blog entries are a separate CMS item, my extension will work. You can also add a “clap” / “like” / “favourite” button, and let users sort by that.

Check it out if you’re interested! :slight_smile: We’re currently looking for customers that would be interested in joining early and shaping our tool. It’s perfect for adding functionality to blogs but it can be used for a lot more!
