CRUD stands for Create, Read, Update, and Delete — the four basic operations all software applications should be able to perform. In HTTP, the most common request methods (POST, GET, PUT/PATCH, and DELETE) correspond to CRUD operations.

The Webflow CMS is a CRUD application because it allows you to perform these operations:

  • Create new content in the Webflow CMS by defining custom fields and content types, such as products, blog posts, or user profiles
  • Use the Collection List element to display (read) a list of items from a specific content type on your website 
  • Update the content and metadata of individual items
  • Delete individual items or entire content types from your website
