About This Class
Webflow is a great tool for designing and building sites on the web. It does this by letting designers build both static, as well as dynamic and database-driven sites without having to write code. Webflow changes the way we design and develop websites by allowing us to work quickly while still complying with industry standards. We believe it deserves the title “the next WordPress” because of how much better it is than other design tools out there.

CMS in Webflow
With the CMS, you have the ability to define a database and corresponding structure in Webflow through its intuitive Editor module. In this course, we’ll explore how the CMS works by creating collections and using dynamic data on Webflow pages – as well as within collection-based sites in Webflow. We’ll define each collection so that we can easily access it and add items later, both from Designer and Editor.
Dynamic Blog & Search
In the second part of our Webflow course, we’ll create a blog with dynamic content and then embed it into an existing static site that we prepared in the first course. You’ll learn everything you need to know about how the CMS functions and how to use its more advanced features. This course will provide you with a variety of lessons that will enable you to enhance your website’s functionality and incorporate business logic without having to use server languages.

Nowadays you can build advanced functions previously reserved for back-end, and you can do it without a single line of code.
