What are my options and how would I set it up to use an external database instead of webflow for data?
Why not webflow?
I am looking to build a real estate idx search site.
Currently we have 5,000 homes a week hit the market. As they sell I want to retain their data…I will use up the max 100k limit before I launch my site.
I need to be able to store tons of data and fields and also deliver them quickly.
(I know there are enterprise solutions available but I want to avoid that I’m not an enterprise with enterprise budgets)
Is there a way to use external data sources for thousands of listing pages and still have speed or is my best bet to design in webflow and self host elsewhere?
You should contact webflow directly. I know that for additional cms items, once you get to your limit, you can pay for more. I think it is like 10$/month but don’t know exactly how many more items that will get you. I hope this helps.
Design your site with webflow and implement a CMS system that has no limits and can work with IDX data or use a solution that remotely displays data via embeds.
Thank you. Can you PM me CMS systems that you suggest looking into for that?
I’d love to hear about what CMS’s @webdev suggested!
Also, @Pablo_Cortes - did you ever confirm that we can pay to increase the 10k CMS item widget? I’d prefer that over a separate CMS…I think
That is what I think based on something I saw in the forum. Now I am not 100% sure. I think if you contact support they will be able to answer that for you quickly.
FYI @Pablo_Cortes, I did confirm that there is a hard 10k limit, even on enterprise accounts.
Got it, thanks for the update @EvanD.
