Nested list 5-item limit

Hi there,

I have created a Nested Collections list which is working but then discovered that there is a 5-item limit on the nested collection. :confused:

My question is, does Finsweet have a workaround for this? And if so how would I go about implementing it?

Thanks in advanced

Finsweet has a workaround for this: Attributes Nest
Watch this tutorial:
It helped me a lot.

Thanks @felix.schmidli95!

@Mica, do let me know if you have any issues so I can help you out! :muscle:

Thanks @felix.schmidli95 and @Support-Luis for your replies.

Sorry for the late reply. This is exactly what I need and it somewhat seems to have worked.

However, I am now confronted with a new problem with my use-case.

The child list that I am wanting to nest has more than 100 elements. So I am only getting 100 elements that are displaying. For this particular scenario I have 190.

I have added the Attributes Load script to the child list. But that still doesn’t work.

Any further help on this would be great.

My CMS heirachy works like this: School → Teachers → Students

On the School CMS page I would like to show the School’s Teachers and then show their Students

NESTED CMS (School CMS Page) Teachers → Students

PARENT CMS (Example CMS Teacher page)

Hi again,

I know that this is slightly off-topic but I am also having trouble trying to get my CMS Filter and Count to work on the same page. I think it is working for the hidden child nested list.

Am I able to connect all of this together?

Thanks in advanced.

hey @Mica! For large nested lists, you’ll need to follow this setup guide → CMS Nest reaching over 100+ CMS items - #2 by Support-Luis

Once all items are correctly nested let me know and I can jump and fix the issues with CMS Filter and the number count :slight_smile:

Hi @Support-Luis that has worked perfectly, thank you.

Would you mind taking a look at the CMS Filter, with search, and the number count?


@Mica! Great to hear :muscle:

Could you be more specific on what issues are you having?

Hi @Support-Luis,

It seems like my filter system is working for the search, number count and filters but not on the nested CMS showing (the one that has replaced the DIV from the nested CMS). It seems to be working on the hidden CMS from which the content is fetching.

Try using these Filters and you will see what I am talking about

@Mica, can we try preventing the load for CMS Filter until after CMS Nest is done? Same way as you prevented CMS Nest with defer fs-attributes-preventload="true" on the script and these callbacks

      numberOfTeachers = $('.mica-member').length;

      window.fsAttributes = window.fsAttributes || [];
        (listInstances) => {
          console.log('cmsload Succesfully loaded!');
        (listInstances) => {
          console.log('cmsnest Successfully loaded!');

        (filterInstances) => {
          console.log('cmsfilter Successfully loaded!');

Hi @Support-Luis,

Thank you for your help. That has all worked perfectly.

Have a great day!
