Filtering Page List+ by Tags

April 07, 2014 at 3:00 PM

The Issue

You have a selectbox page attribute that you want to use as 'tags':

  • Each page attribute can have multiple values
  • The values can be used across pages, much as a keyword would be

How to Fix the Issue

To setup Page List+ to filter by this attribute:

  1. In the 'Page Selection' tab, setup the pages from which you want Page List+ to pull in
  2. In the 'Search' tab tick these boxes
    • Show results
    • Show search filters
    • Submit form as soon as filter is changed
    • The box for the custom attribute you've setup, eg 'Tags'
  3. In the 'Filters' tab, setup the 'Tags' attribute:
    • Tick the 'Tags' attribute
    • Change the selection criteria box to either of these:
      • 'matches any from search values' to select pages that have any of the checked tags
      • 'matches all from search values' to select pages that contain all of the checked tags
  4. In the 'Sort' tab, setup the way you'd like to sort the page results
  5. In the 'Display' tab, setup the way you'd like to display the page results
  6. Save the Page List+ block

You should now have a block that shows the tags across the top. When you click the boxes, the page should reload showing the matching pages in the list.
