Increase CMS item limit

10,000 items may sound a lot, but it’s extremely limiting even for small/medium blogs with many contributors, especially if you want to implement custom tags. As it is now, no blog/news site will be able to handle more than a few years of article creations before being forced off Webflow.

    For news sites or blogs , 10000 items are not enough.

    For a single post, sometimes we choose 5 tags?!

    Is there still a 10,000 limit on this? For some reason I was under the impression that the limit was not specified (and hence unlimited).

    [VOTED +3] This sounds to costumers like an expiry date for their website. 


    "Yeah sure we will do this website for you. Please note, if you migrate your exiting articles and  keep publishing like you do at the moment, your running out of capacity in around 3 years. ...Wanna sign this contract?"

     

     

     

    10.000 Items sounds a lot. Definitely. But without this limitation i think it will be a huge opportunity for creating bigger webapps or directories and making Webflow gradually become a killer-platfform. Or even like Haram said, big Shops.

     

    But please look at this psychological aspect. Even if they'r good to go for years, the angst is real.

     

    1. A lacking feature

    YOU: "This little neat feature is currently not released"

    CLIENT: "okay, no problem. We'll wait. :)"

     

    2. Hard Limit

    YOU. "Theres a limitation in the number of Items, but this will be solved somewhere in the future"

    CLIENT:" Okay, wait. If this limitation will not be lifted in time, i need to get rid of my content creators?"

     

    I hope you get my point here:D

    +3 on this. When this feature becomes unlimited, I think we'll see a handful of stores migrate from Shopify (which does allow unlimited items) to Webflow.
