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.

    I have read the article: https://topspyingapps.com/ispyoo/ which tells about an application that allows you to monitor your own social networks. The article explain how you can improve a control over your own account.

    This is a really important feature. I shouldn't have to explain why.

    really surprised this isn’t already astandard built-in component to the CMS - it’s a fundamental element that is featured in almost all the sites I build for clients. Can we get an update on this please?

    It is really embarrassing that such a basic function has not yet been added to an advanced platform as Webflow.

    I have been looking into Webflow for months and I can't wait to make the transition from the platform I am currently using ... but until basic functions like this are integrated, I won't even be able to start.

    From a platform like Webflow it is expected to be able to create complex and articulated websites. But the lack of simple functions here and there make even the simplest of projects almost impossible.

    How can the Webflow eCommerce solution be credible, if there is not even the possibility to filter the results?

    All the incredible potential that the platform offers are nullified by the lack of necessary things.

    I'm really disappointed that this feature has been in backlog since 2017.

    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.
