Ability to duplicate Collection Page

It would be greatly beneficial to have the ability to quickly clone a collection, with it's collection page contents, and then modify it.

    We are back in working with wood and stone. You carve the wood and you can't change it. Welcome to webflow that does not let you copy and modify your collections (hooks and URL). It does not even let you export and import your CMS data. Well done! Back in working with wood and stone!

    So frustrating to not have this when creating multiple collections which need to have all the same fields. Please Please Please!

    OH NO. Was just looking for this, and now I'm banging my head on the keyboard that we have to manually recreate an exact duplicate of a collection. damn. painful.

    This would be highly appreciated. Am for instance now duplicating a website to host it on another domain in a different language, so need to rebuild the collections in order of giving the URL the name in the correct language. A simple job, very laborsome.

    I've done a website, which included one collection.

    I then duplicate the website and have translated it.

    But now both websites are sharing the same collection, so I would like to duplicate the whole collection, so that I can translate it as well.


    Any ideas? Or is this impossible?

    Would also be great to export the CMS as a CSV file to edit and move to a secondary site!

    Yes, need to do exactly this today. Guess I could do something clever with a category/switch/filter type thing, but that'll just make things complicated for the client. and probably isn't going to work with category sub-folder urls needed.

    Gets my vote too.

    I think being able to duplicate the entire collection page would be helpful. I'm trying to make my site an app too and so in theory if could duplicate the entire page, then I could create one that navigates back to the app and not the website version.

    Hello All! New to Webflow and new to this forum so please forgive any foolishness in advance. . . One of my first hurdles here has been finding no way to duplicate a collection which as everybody is finding demands a lot of tedious repitition of effort.

    I do notice though, at least in the webflow developed site template I started with ("Uncommon"), that when I go to add a new collection I am presented with a list of collection templates above the collection settings section.

    That's really all everyone here is looking for, i.e. a way to use an existing set of collection settings and fields as a template for another collection. How did the developers of "Uncommon" create and populate the "Collection Templates" section of the "Create Collection" page?

    This would be really helpful I need to set up 5 collections with same settings this takes up a lot of time. Duplicating the entire collection without its contents but including the fields that have been set up would be great.

    I must say my first reaction was the same as everyone else. Seems so obvious. I think it's because it's the natural way of thinking as we create.

    However, I must also say that this forced me to find how the conditional display filter can be used pretty well, at least in my case.

    What I've done is make one big collection list that contains all the fields any category needs, and added a simple text collection field called Category Name.

    So if it's an Architect, for that business just type in Architect in that collection field. Then make an Architects normal page and put a Collection List in it that draws from the big list but only if the condition is met that Category Name equals Architects, which you only typed in for those certain businesses in the big list. 

    How I see this almost working better than duplicating collection pages is that, again using a business directory as an example, by not chopping up your overall list into different collections, you can still make a global change much easier. Say to add a new collection field, to all the categories at once.

    I was facing this issue, and ran into the error that you cannot clone an entire page wrapper with collection list elements. But! You can make a new regular page, copy certain non collection page item based elements, such as a top-nav or footer, and then copy it from that page to a new collection page to semi-recreate the old page, copy pasting piece by piece. you can also make a symbol of the non collection based elements and then reference them on a dummy page.

    Same here. I'm never - like never - going to use a CMS-hosting plan in the future and will start with building my CMS on the product pages if I see jus the slightest part of selling something in the near future.

    Plus, why not add the "add to cart"-functionality to a CMS-collection just as easily?
