Link to collection pages (not just static pages)

When you try to make a link in Webflow you have to option to link to:

  • a full URL you type in
  • a page on the site (from a pulldown list)
  • a section of the current page (from a pulldown list)
  • an email address
  • a phone number

How do you link to a specific collection entry without copying and pasting the link after finding it on the live site?

What if I want to link to a particular blog post from a page on my site? I have to find that post on the front-end of the site then copy the URL and paste it into the field for my link?

Maybe I'm missing something but shouldn't there be a pulldown list for collection entries so it's easy to link to them?

    Another very basic oversight when it comes to the Webflow CMS. Unfortunately the platform is littered with frustrating little limitations like this, which push users towards dysfunctional workflows with messy workarounds.

    Hey guys, hasn't this been implemented? I somehow missed it at first and came here when searching for answers, but then I noticed the second option for a link is "collection page."

    I'm shocked that this is on a wishlist. I assumed that it would be standard functionality

    This facility really should have been added by now. I'm disappointed to see it hasn't

    Yeah, similar to link-to-page options Sergie! Would be perfect! Good idea Sean!

    FWIW I worked around this by creating a collection list with a link bound to the target collection, and set a filter to something unique about the collection I wanted to target (e.g. the name!)

    Hope this helps anyone else having the same problem...

    So similar to the link-to-page options that are available when setting a link in a rich text?
