Increase the items limit of Nested Collection Lists (currently max 5 only!!!)

The Nested collection list function is super useful, but it is currently limited to 5 items.

It is actually fine and reasonable to have a limit, but not 5 only...

Webflow team, can you increase it to 20 or more?

    Just painful. Spending too much time on the frankly pathetic 'Logic' (which should be renamed to 'Form Only Logic') and not addressing restricting platform capabilities like this.

    Wasn't the big infrastructure update last year meant to allow for things like this to be solved or at least increased?

    Yeah I would love to see an increase in the nesting ability in general. I've taken over maintenance of a site where we have to join multiple collections just like any old relational database and we hit the limit right away.

    We have to create display variations of the joined collections and right now the client is being forced to decide on looking for temporary workarounds or rebuilding the site elsewhere, which would be a shame.

    I know there are some technical challenges with the custom data queries that would be required to do this kind of thing (caching and keeping the performance fast), but this really does need a solution asap since more and more Webflow users are looking to scale up the complexity of their sites, being that they're pretty happy with the service in general.

    Oh PLEASE update this!! I'm trying to build a site for a client with CMS houses plotted onto a map, all great but they can only have x5 houses - I need 30! So frustrating :(

    This is an urgent request. It's almost not worth using Webflow without at least 10 items. Considering moving to a different platform.

    Unfortunately I am one of the many who have run into this limitation after spending weeks on design, only to have to now consider drastically changing the product and workflow for myself and my client. Please increase this limit. It would be massively helpful.

    F**K me this is so frustrating and unnecessary. And the most frustrating part is that easily fixable wishes like these are ignored by the team. Please Webflow, fix this or at least respond!

    Webflow please increase the limit. Please! This is very important feature and very useful. Please increase the limit. Other solutions are available but there are many steps to perform to achieve the results that I don't want to do.

    Any updates here? This is honestly one of the worst limitations from a product I have ever experienced. 5?! Really?

    Absolutely ridiculous to have that limitation.

    At least make it an even number! I mostly pull images to display in a grid as I'm sure you know the 12 column grid and, well, 12 is not dividable by 5. Not even close.

    Webflow those of us who think about nested collections also understand the risks regarding speed if we do crazy things with it.
    For the straight forward implementations it's a none issue,... do you have any timeline in the limit increase? Or when it will be considered?

    Absolute must have! A Webfow staff member advised met to use this workaround in the meanwhile It's not ideal but until they release this feature you can get your project working!

    This HAS to be an artificial limit (i.e. a limit intentionally imposed in the system). Why would the limit exist otherwise? Is it a for performance reasons? Either way, the 5 item limit is a bit ridiculous. I certainly can understand needing to cap it, but 5? Please increase.

    I did so much work to get to the point where my site was functional. Then I discovered this glaring ridiculous issue. Please fix this.
