  • Sharepoint | Blog category view not filtered by category

    Tags: SharePoint

    The issue is with Sharepoint blog category view. The page should only show the posts which have been tagged with the category you click on, but I have found this not to be the case.

    I posted a thread on the Sharepoint blog forums and thankfully Laura Rogers came up with a solution.

    Here we go…

    Navigate to the category.aspx page of the Sharepoint blog.

    Add a Query string (URL) Filter web part.

    Modify the query string web part settings. Query string parameter name must be Name.

    clip_image004

    Remove the filter from the posts web part.

    Go into the Posts web parts settings, click edit the current view.

    clip_image006

    In the Filter section, change the option selected.

    clip_image008

    Now connect the query string web part to the posts web part.

    clip_image010

    You will get this little popup (you may need to allow popups). Select Category from the list.

    That’s it.

    Your category filtering should now work.
