Can I create my own collection other than blog and event

Recommended Posts

I am using Squarespace dev mode. I am getting the data from Firebase. So I am creating my own web pages to work with. I need a collection like EVENT. The page has 'event' list and clicking on the individual event, the link should take me to event landing page. like blog list and blog item. Can somebody please tell me how can I do that or am i allowed to create my own collection?

I appreciate your help.

Yes you can create your own collections in dev mode!

Here are the docs on how to do that: https://developers.squarespace.com/collections

They also walk you through how to make a collection in the Beginner Tutorial: https://developers.squarespace.com/beginner-tutorial/#Part6-CreatingaBlogCollection

Thanks Carly,

Yes, I did manage to create my own collection. That's good. But as my data is getting pulled from a external database, the collection didn't seem write thing for me.

What template are you using? Any 7.0 template has summaries/collections that pull content from a lot of places, 7.1 summary will pull from blog pages only. 

Hi Derrick,

I am not really sure about that. I have created my own static page. 

From this page i need to create further pages. I thought collection would be best but i am not creating collection list one by one i am getting it pulled from third party database. So little lost still.
