No need to upgrade your account just to learn Webflow CMS.

This is the part 2 of our 4 part Webflow CMS for beginners series where we are creating a blog system with blogs, tags and categories.In this 2nd part I’m going to show you how to create atags and category collections so that you can add them to your Webflow blog posts easily.

Before we start I hope you’ve gone through our first part of this series if not then click here to read it.

If you don't like reading blogs then you can watch my video here.

Tags and Categories:

Tags and Categories are very useful when it comes to blog because it helps in SEO (Search Engine Optimization). Let’s say one of your user is reading a blog on popular Design Tools for UI, and you've added tags or categories like Adobe XD, Figma, Invision and etc.

If they are interested to read more on Adobe XD then they would click it and then they would be redirected to the Adobe XD tag or category page where they’d see only Adobe XD related posts and this is how you can maximize the time of your users on your website.

here I’m showing you to create Tags collection but you can use the same process to create a Category collection.

Step 1: Create a new collection called Tags (See the image below) and don't add any extra field keep it as it is.

Step 2: Once the collection is created then add few collection items just like I did in the below image.

Step 3: In order to add your Tags and Categories to your collections with your main Blog Posts Collection follow below steps.

Add a new field reference field for tags and Categories I suggest to choose multi-reference field because any blog post can have multiple tags and categories.

Step 4: Once the reference field added successfully just go to your current blog posts and select your tags and categories for your posts. Just like I did for mine (See the Image Below)

Congratulations! you’ve successfully created your Tags and Categories collections and added to your main Blog Post collection.
