The CMS or "Content Management System" is Webflow's database-like capability which allows you to manage consitently-structured content, like;
- Blog posts
- Real-estate listings
- Upcoming events
In SYGNAL-U, you're seeing the CMS at work on this page, with collections such as Courses, Lessons, and Tags.
- CMS, or Content Management System
- Collection, which is roughly equivalent to a database table that describes one thing, like "events."
- > A Collection has Fields, which describe the different parts of that item, e.g. event name, start date, cost, max capacity, location, and so on.
- Collection Items are the actual data rows in that collection, e.g. the individual events.
- Collection List is a component you can place on your canvas, and bind to a Collection to pull and display Collection Items on your page.
- A Collection Page is a special page designed as a template. You view a single Collection Item at a time on this page, e.g. a single event's details. It's a full webpage so it can be quite detailed, and it can even contain Collection Lists showing other content e.g. upcoming shows, or ticket options that relate to the event the visitor is currently viewing.
