Unable to Delete CMS Collection with 0 items

I’m unable to delete a CMS collection with zero items.

I’ve deleted all elements from the collection page as well.

I’ve searched all the symbols, interaction, remaining pages and their elements, but cannot find any references to the collection I want to delete.

I’ve already sent @webflow an email.

Here’s my share link:

Like Unable to Delete CMS Collection, I may need a hard refresh.

Please help!

Please post a screenshot of collection page template’s settings.

There are 2 fields inside my Donation Collection. I tried deleting the 2 fields but it kept complaining:
This field is currently used by either a Collection List on the site or inside a Collection Page. To delete this field, you’ll need to remove any references to it first.

The Donation Template (page) has nothing in it. Empty page.

Here is my sharable link:

I’m not asking for a screenshot of the page. I’m asking for the screenshot of the page settings.

Is this what you want?

I removed the Name in Meta Title. When I tried to delete the “text” and “Thumbnail” fields in the Donation Collection, an error message as shown in the 2nd screenshot

Please help. Thank you so much!


Hi @agent

Looks like your site needed a hard refresh from this end. I have gone ahead and performed this—can you please try to delete this collection now?

​Thanks in advance, and I’m standing by for your reply.

It worked! All CMS collection is removed!

Thank you so much for your speedy help!


It looks like I have the same problem, maybe Brando you could help me ?
This is my sharable link of my website:

I’m having this same issue. My site is:

I’m 99% certain I’ve removed all instances, including any dynamic links pre-included in the collection page settings.

Hi @johnwilliamdev

Have you tried expanding everything in the navigator to check all elements?

Hold alt/option and the down key, whilst in the navigator and it expands all elements.

I’ve tried that for every single page in the project. I use the shortcut link that says ‘Expand All’ to view all nested elements, and there are no collection lists anywhere.

The same problem with my site. Anyone could help me with that :slight_smile: ?
