Use Catalyst to start an online news website or grow an audience for your existing organization.  Spotted a niche? Start a blog with a purpose and speak your truth through long-form articles or video posts.  Catalyst is the perfect home for your new company-wide news feed, or academic research publication.

Easy Setup, Composing and Editing

Get set up and start publishing right away, with Catalyst.  Set up multiple authors and categorize posts under tags quickly and easily through Webflow CMS.  Articles are easy to compose and edit using the straightforward rich text environment offered by Webflow.

Article Reading Progress Bar

It can be hard to win the attention of your readers - so keep their attention a little longer with Catalyst’s reading progress bar.  As your readers scroll through an article, they will see a progress bar extend across the top of the page to keep them on-task.

Ad supported home layout

If your site relies on revenue from in-page ads, we’ve got you covered.  Catalyst includes an ad-supported home layout with spaces for advertising to give you the flexibility to run ads if you need.

Video Posts

Sometimes you need more than words to convey the full story.  With Catalyst, you can feature a video in the post, and your readers will see a play icon on the post thumbnail to indicate that the post contains a video.

Featured Posts

Give emphasis to a trending topic by featuring a story at the top of each category page.  Simply set the story as featured in Webflow CMS, and the article will take top position when listing its relevant category.

Questions about this template? Just leave a comment below and the designer will get back to you within two business days.

For advanced design guidance, please share your questions in the Webflow Forum or reach out to a Webflow Expert.

Is there a template demo available?

Use the Preview in Designer option to make any edits to the template pages and preview how the layout would fit your content. Changes in preview mode won't be saved.

Can templates be used in existing projects?

It isn't possible to apply a template to an already existing project. Instead, you'll need to create a new project based on the Template.

How many template pages can be edited with a Free Account Plan?

With a Free account plan, it is possible to edit two pages of the template-based project. To unlock more pages and features a premium plan is required.

Can templates be exported?

With a Lite plan (or higher), you can export sites you build in Webflow, including templates, to host them anywhere you'd like.

How to purchase a template from a team account?

Webflow templates are only available for purchase through individual accounts. Once a template-based project has been created it is then possible to transfer it to a team account.

How to remove the CMS functionality from a template?

CMS templates are designed to use the power of the Webflow CMS. It is possible to downgrade to a Basic Site Plan as long as all CMS content is deleted from the project.

Use the View Connections tool to understand where the CMS content is on the site and delete any dynamic listings and CMS content. We also recommend you to check Symbols and the Collection page Templates.

Fully customizable in Webflow

All templates were built by designers using Webflow without writing code. That means you can customize them using our visual interface too.
