Increase the number of CMS references allowed

I've had situations where I have a page designs that need lots of fields to accommodate the different types of content on the page. To avoid the 30 field limit on the template I use multi references. But I quickly run out of references I can use.

    This becomes apparent in the middle of a project. Actually a bummer

    This is honestly essential. Even if it has to be limited to paid plans.

    Please increase to something even as little as


    10 Basic
    20 Business

    Dear Webflow team, I would be willing to pay extra to have more CMS reference fields. Having only five seriously limits what I can do with my website, and is extremely frustrating. I urgently request you to consider making this change. This was posted five years ago. What is the status of increasing this limit?

    Was at a meeting with big client, too bad this 5 limitation made us chose alternative option. Please fix this, your losing customers.

    The limit make many users to think about moving from webflow. My projects and customer's project don't work with such limit. 10 is the minimum

    Please change this and up the limit to 8-10. This is a very necessary feature and is putting me off from using Webflow all together.

    Why have the reduced this? It's totally ruined my whole business model!! Nightmare .... Can someone from Webflow please respond to this so we can know whether to leave the platform or not?

    Can we just get a possibility to pay for more multi reference fields.... Customers have no problem paying for it, so why make this limitation that basicly makes webflow useless for some cases? I just need 20 of them to make a very dynamic menu system for a restaurant with multiple locations. But for now I can only get 10 no matter what?

    I thought something was wrong when I went to add a 6th ref field. For e-commerce, how would one build out a catalog with just 5 reference fields? (Commerce Plan)

    Paying customer here. I was about to upgrade, but now I'm about to leave completely.


    Can't work with just 5 (or 10) ref fields...

    Please increase the number of multi-reference fields that one can use per CMS collection... this will be very useful in the project I am working on.

    Stuck on a project without the ability to have more than 5 multi-reference fields. Please unlock this capability for users.

    I'm in dire need of this as well. I have no idea what I'm going to do to accomplish some of my clients needs. One reason I cannot switch completely over to Webflow from Wordpress etc. Having only 5 reference's is a pretty sad number to be honest :(. PLEASE remove limitation.


    Thank you Webflow team!

    I am a paying customer as all other people that have commented and upvoted. Webflow, it's your responsability to respond to your paying customer's requests. Remove the limitation!

    Thank you.

    Please adjust this limitation. 5 is just too low--please consider at least 8-10.

    This is a feature I would be willing to pay more money for. It should at least be available as an option on some premium plans, or as an optional upgrade. I would love to use Webflow for all my creation needs but given the complexity of the systems I am trying to design I am not sure I will be able to use Webflow. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE TAKE MY MONEY

    I wonder why Webflow would limit the potential of its users in such a way. The 5 limit and the impossibility to nest more than one collection per page is incapacitating.

    Yes please!
