Subfolders (also known as subdirectories) offer a versatile way to rewrite specific paths of your site to different origins, such as another Webflow site or platforms like Ghost or WordPress.

Navigate to your Subfold dashboard. Locate and click on the Subfolders tab in the sidebar.
2. Adding a Subfolder
Inside the Subfolders section, click on the Add Subfolder button.
3. Configuring the Path
Enter the Path for your new subfolder. This is the relative path where the subfolder will be created. For example, to set up a blog, you would enter
4. Configuring the Destination URL
Enter the Destination URL. This is the target destination where traffic to this subfolder will be redirected. The destination functions similarly to the Origin URL configured in the Site tab.
5. Configuring the Link Prefix
Use the Link Prefix option if you need to rewrite links on the page to include the new subfolder name. This step is crucial for ensuring that links within the subfolder correctly point to the new destination.
6. Save and Preview
Once you’ve configured the subfolder settings, click Save. To preview your changes, click the Preview Site button located at the top right of the screen. This allows you to test that your configuration is correct.
