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.

    I may have to move away from Webflow in the future as I grow my blogs. This is a crazy limit for no reason. It's the number one reason why organizations with lots of articles, authors, and tags won't switch from Webflow or HubSpot.

    Wtf seriously survivorship bias is real

    Nones voting this because they all saw this platform wasnt for them as soon as they saw the CMS limit
    This is the only thing holding it back from being the ultimate website builder as far as I can see

    +1 to this. A big CMS is SO important for any site with articles and 10k items are barely enough for 3-5 years at max.

    Can't confirm this, but if the sales team really asks for 40k - 60k dollars per month to increase the CMS limit in the enterprise plan that's just laughable. Hope we see some CMS improvements very soon.

    Webflow does not seem to be focussing on this as an issue as it only has 600 votes. Its a classic case of survivorship basis, where its only collecting information from people who stay on platform.

    I have spoken to so many people who won't touch webflow due to the CMS limits. Can we please get additional CMS allocation at $X per month?

    Its crazy that people are leaving wordpress, build on webflow, hit 10K and go back to wordpress. This will be me in a few months :(.

    Webflow can you fix this already. I often have to use embeded code as I work around since I am often limited in what I can do with Webflow CMS collections, which I don't mind... but now I discover a 10,000 limit, so I have to do a work around for my work around... this is just getting silly! Fix this already!!!

    I cant believe this doesnt have the most votes!! Come on people vote it up!! Also --- I would like to repeat Kasper's comment / question below:

    "@Webflow, was this left open because you're still testing out things?


    Or did you forget to close it, as it's already an option with the requirement of a US$4k/mo enterprise package?


    Would be great if you could shed some light on the plans for this for the future, so we can plan accordingly. Cheers."

    My website is a small sports news website. We have 31K articles and 15k tags, in addition to authors and categories. We are planning to create custom posts for players and teams; this is alone more than 50K items.


    The minimum should be 100K CMS items and options to add more items via an add-on, not to upgrade to enterprise and pay thousands.


    It's impossible to migrate to Webflow with the current CMS item limitation.

    We are moving off Webflow because of this. No answer? No plan to increase? How??

    It's super easy to go past 10 000. It should have been lifted a long time ago, even more with the memberships around the corner

    This should be the #1 priority at the company, It limits ALL use cases.

    Absolutely ridiculous that not even Enterprise has more than 10,000 cms items. Get your shit together.

    This is a big concern, as it will soon force us to find another service. We do not want to do this after all of the time and resources put into Webflow. Please make this a high priority. Thanks!

    Literally the last feature I've needed for about two years now :( For a platform that pioneered the most practical visual web dev software, then integrated ecommerce, I'm really surprised this hasnt gotten more attention. Maybe atleast partnering and providing more info on integrating cms pulls from other platforms so I can sealmleslly scale without exporting webflow site would be cool..

    Ugh, yes! I'm learning webflow for future client work and I'm quite disappointed at such a low limit. It's SOOO easy to hit that rather quickly. I hope Webflow addresses this in the near future.
