Real-time filtering/sorting on website (Faceted navigation)

It would be great to be able to easily create a robust portfolio, with real-time filters. For example, if you are a photographer, then an image gallery with filter categories such as landscape, portraits, street photography, etc... Upon clicking on the filter, only the specific category items appear. This is very common with wordpress portfolio sites, but its extremely difficult to set up in webflow.

    This should be Webflow to do number one.

    For example, a newly released new template store would need this feature. https://webflow.com/templates/new. You can not do proper search.

    Even simple filtering like:

    Category: Food & drink CMS

    Style: Dark

    Type: eCommerce

    Is not possible. Only one thing at a time. :'(

    Real CMS filtering is very needed and lack of it really complicates making a webflow sites.

    Current quick solutions i've found instead of using completely custom code.

    - Using Tabs and CMS Collection lists elements, here is a good example of this you can reverse engineer in designer https://webflow.com/templates/html/real-estate-real-estate-cms-website-template

    - Using a nocode embed super easy with https://www.jetboost.io/

    This should still be its own element webflow come on lol! Hope this is a thing in 2020!

    For now, my workaround for this is using Tabs for my categories, and placing a collection list (with the same classes) in each, but each collection list is filtered by a different CMS multi-reference field value in the Colleciton List Settings. Because I'm using a multi-reference field, I can combine multiple categories into one tab, in case I don't need a cateogory for every single one.

    This should really be implemented ASAP. It's awkward sitting with a client and discussing their new eCommerce solution and you get the question... "Okay.. and the products, we want filters of course to make it easy for our customers"... "well....!"

    How is this not a thing, am I missing something? I just wanted to create a simple food blog and have filtering for different recipe categories and I'm not finding a free solution. Shouldn't this be a given like on Wordpress?

    I use Jetboost on my site (Makerpad) and it works a treat! Super easy to set up and low $. It has:

    • Multi-filters on one or more (!) collection list wrappers

    • Auto-generated URL slugs when filtering

    • Real-time dynamic search

    Didn't need to know any code to set up or anything.

    This is so incredibly important, and using MixItUp as a workaround has caused all sorts of difficulties. Please move this out of the backlog and into active production!

    We need filters for ecommerce catalog.  It should behave similar to filtering rows on excel.  You can select multiple filters and the products get drilled down, and the only ones that show are the ones that match all filters selected.  Until this is implemented, you won't have a true ecommerce solution.

    Sorta wild that this still doesn't exist.

    I'm obviously able to show/hide content based on different variables, but there's no way to activate that with a button, dynamically.

    Just let me dynamically filter/sort CMS content with user input!!

    This is such a standard basic for photographers and those with many images. Why is Webflow so far behind on this? Im looking into switching to Webflow from another platform but stuff like this is making it a challenge.

    I would really like to see this feature. Real time filtering of multi-referenced databases is a must and I'm itching to make the switch to Webflow. The current work arounds with MixItUp and Isotope have their restrictions. I love Webflow but I can't fully commit until this feature is prioritized.

    I was floored to see this feature was nowhere to be found.  Given everything I already know about what Webflow can do I am very disappointed about this.  This topic has been open since 2017 please add the feature.

    I really need this feature in order to build my startup idea with Webflow. Dear Webflow team, please work on it! Otherwise I'm completely stuck.

    I am looking to use webflow for enterprise, But if i can't use do such simple filter and sorting it's useless to even begin. You guys have all the tool but don't even allow us to use them. Checkbox, radio button and select along with regular button are stuffs every development platform offer to filter, Yet you have then and can only add then on forms. doesn' t make any sense. A feel bad for myself because I am in love with webflow and can't use it.
