Splitting CMS across 2 columns

Hi, I’m trying to make a news site. I want 2 columns on the page: the first (left) will be news articles and the second (right) will be opinion pieces.

I want a larger size for the top article on the news side.

For reference, kind of like the NYT website ( - that split page view with a focal point at the top left.

I tried making 2 column CMS but any changes to the left side also changed the right (plus, it was really awkward to get them to display properly within the container).

How should I go about doing this?

Thanks :slight_smile:

You have to use separate Collection Lists for each column and the top articles. In CMS use tags, boleen or dropdown list to sort your articles to one or more of the defined areas. Then set the same conditions to each of the Collection lists (see tutorial in webflow university:
