What user interactions are possible yet with CMS?


on the front page webflow is currently presenting this site:

It seems to contain a like function for images/data. I assume that this means it is possible with CMS?

From what i have seen so far from CMS i couldn’t find any interaction the user could take therefore i wonder if there’s any kind of poissble user interaction yet?

Some important features i could think about that need to have user interaction:

  • Comments (can of course be done with an external service but still…)
  • Like/Vote functions
  • Form processing in general (Contact forms, content suggestions, newsletter subscriptions, etc.)

Thanks for helping,

A other feature i realy would love to see is custom filtering of content by the user, specialy a must for building modern webshop these days

Hey @helmi

Right now if you add interactions to an element within a data collection, it will apply that same interaction to all of the instances of that element through the collection.

So you only have to apply an interaction once to a dynamic element (aka element within a data collection), and that interaction will be bound to ALL other instances of that element. :slight_smile:

I think you can limit functions nested/sibling within each dynamic element block (treat it as a div block which you can add elements to).

I’m a little confused on the Form Processing question? Are you trying to create dynamic forms? That’s not possible yet to my knowledge.

Let me know if that answers your question please. :smile:

Thank you,


@Waldo thanks for stepping in.

I think i didn’t quite get my words right. By user interaction i wanted to ask for visitor interaction. So what is possible here? Can i build forms for visitors to enter data for example to mail them or save them to the database (CMS)? Am i able to build a comments system for the blog? Am i able to collect votes?

I basically love the idea of a flexible CMS over a more unflexible one like for example with Squarespace. And i also think it’s worth paying more for this flexibility but without anything regarding user interaction i think a big piece is missing that cuts the flexibility again.

Hey @helmi you can add contact forms with the contact form widget to any Webflow website and setup Zapier integrations with it.

Also, I recommend just adding the Disqus comment widget which works on dynamic pages. They’re awesome. :smile: and free! Let me know if you need any assistance setting one up. It’s just an HTML embed. :smile:

There are many widgets available online :slight_smile: just Google what you’re looking for like a Voting Widget. :smile: Let me know if you need help setting them up.

Thank you,
