Allow the first slug be defined by a collection


I´d like do create a website where the first slug where defined by an item on a collection, such a category.

So I could create content and put them, automatically, on

Today, the collection generates the slug. It´s not goog.

    Agree with Pataka. My use case is a knowledge base.

    This would be great. The ability to nest collection items like Pataka stated.

    May I second this wish. Typically, when setting up an e-commerce with a multi-level structure, the URL should contain the name(s) of higher-level category(ies).

    Say, I have this product structure:

    - Power Tools
    - - Drills
    - - Screwdrivers
    - - Grinders
    - - - Grinder One
    - - - Grinder Two

    Right now, Webflow shows this URL for an individual product:


    For SEO purposes, what is needed is this:


    Since handling nested collections is rather limited at the moment, the product's position in the product tree has to be defined using reference fields; so, the "nice" URL could be populated dynamically using fields from the product.

    Thank you!!

    Today, if I want to use Webflow for a blog, for example, I have to create a collection called "blog" or "posts". So, the content goes on "" or "".

    What I suggest is the possibility to set a behavior more similar to another CMS, such as WordPress, where the category of each article fills the slug.

    So, I could create a blog about sports and put content on, etc without create a collection for each sport.

    Am I clear?
