Top 5 Missing Features in Webflow and Their Solutions

Webflow is a popular website builder that offers a lot of flexibility and customization options. However, there are some features that are missing, which can be frustrating for users. In this guide, we'll explore the top 5 missing features in Webflow and provide solutions to help you overcome these limitations.

Here are the top 5 missing features in Webflow

  1. Multi-language support
  2. Commenting on blogs
  3. File upload (free one)
  4. Filtering, sorting, and searching
  5. Advanced e-commerce functionality

So now, let’s discuss all of them in detail:

Multi-language support

Unfortunately, Webflow does not currently offer built-in support for multi-language websites. This can be a major issue for businesses or organizations that operate in multiple countries or regions with different languages. However, there are workarounds to this limitation.

One option is to create separate pages for each language and use a language switcher to allow users to switch between them.

Another option is to use a third-party tool like Weglot, Linguana, or Bablic to add multi-language support to your Webflow site. These tools allow you to easily translate your site into multiple languages and manage the translations from a single.

Commenting on blogs

One of the missing features in Webflow is the ability to add commenting functionality to your blog posts. To overcome this limitation, you can use third-party commenting systems like Disqus or Facebook Comments.

These systems allow for more customization and also provide social media integration, which can help increase engagement on your blog. Simply add the commenting system's code to your Webflow site and you're good to go!

File Upload

One of the missing features in Webflow is the ability to allow users to upload files through a form on your website without Webflow’s business plan. This can be a problem if you need to collect files from clients or customers. One workaround is to use a third-party service like Uploadcare. You can create a custom field using Webflow embed and then add the file upload field to your form.

Another option is to use Zapier or Integromat to connect your Webflow form to a cloud storage service like Dropbox or Google Drive, where users can upload their files.

Filtering, sorting, and searching

Another missing feature in Webflow is the ability to filter, sort, and search content on your website. This can be a problem if you have a large amount of content that users need to navigate through. One workaround is to use a third-party plugin like Finsweet (Made for Webflow) or Isotope to add filtering and sorting functionality to your website.

You can also use a search bar plugin like Swiftype or Algolia to allow users to search for specific content on your site. Another option is to manually create separate pages for each category or tag and link them in your navigation menu.

Advanced e-commerce functionality

While Webflow does offer basic e-commerce functionality, it lacks some advanced features that are essential for larger online stores. For example, Webflow does not have built-in support for multi-currency payments, which can be a major barrier for international customers.

Additionally, Webflow does not offer advanced inventory management features, such as the ability to track stock levels or set up automatic reordering. To overcome these limitations, you can integrate Webflow with third-party e-commerce platforms like Snipcart or

These platforms offer a wide range of advanced features and can be seamlessly integrated with your Webflow site.
