How Do I Add Categories to My Blog in Webflow?

Adding Categories to Your Blog in Webflow

One of the great features of Webflow is the ability to organize your blog posts into categories. This allows your readers to easily navigate and find the content they are interested in. In this tutorial, we will walk you through the steps of adding categories to your blog in Webflow.

First, let’s start by creating a new collection for our categories. In the Webflow Designer, go to the “CMS” tab and click on “Add Collection”. Name your collection “Categories” and add any additional fields you want, such as a category description or image.

Once you have created your collection, you can start adding categories. Click on the “Add Category” button and fill in the necessary information for each category. You can use the fields you created earlier to add more details about each category.

Now that we have our categories set up, it’s time to add them to our blog posts. Open your blog post template in the Designer and locate the section where you want to display your categories. This could be at the top or bottom of your post or even within a sidebar.

To create a visually engaging list of categories, we will use an unordered list element (

    ) combined with list item elements (

  • ). Wrap these elements around your category names inside a

    tag like this:


    • Category 1
    • Category 2
    • Category 3


    By using the element, we can make our category names bold and stand out from the rest of the text. This makes it easier for readers to quickly identify and select their desired category.

    If you want to further enhance the visual appeal of your categories, you can also add some CSS styling to the


    • elements. For example, you can change the font size, color, or add a background color to the list:



      In addition to displaying the categories on your blog post template, you can also create a separate page where readers can explore all available categories. To do this, create a new static page in Webflow and design it according to your preferences.

      You can use subheaders (


      , etc.) to organize and label the different categories.

      To display each category dynamically on this page, you will need to connect your Categories collection to this new page using a Collection List element. This element will automatically populate with all the categories you have added.

      To summarize, adding categories to your blog in Webflow involves creating a Categories collection, adding categories within that collection, and then displaying those categories on your blog post template and/or separate category page. By using HTML styling elements like for bold text and


      • for lists, you can make your category display visually engaging and organized.

        Now that you know how to add categories to your blog in Webflow, go ahead and start organizing your content for better navigation and user experience!
