How to create a link to a blog or resources page showing only one filtered category?

SOLVE

Hi there,

 

I'm looking for a way to link to a blog or resources page with the page showing only items with a specific filter applied. E.g. these pages: https://www.amicus.com.au/library/resources or https://www.amicus.com.au/library/projects but with only the items filtered by 'Laboratory' displayed.

 

I'm hoping it's a simple solution such as appending a query string; can anyone advise on how to implement this?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Steve

Hi @SKrinks 

 

If your content pieces are blog posts in HubSpot and have been tagged appropriately, a page for each tag is generated automatically. You can see an example of such a page here: https://www.amicus.com.au/resources/library/blog/tag/laboratory

These pages exist already for all your blog tags. However, they do not feature and interface with your filtering UI, which appears to have been custom coded on top of the main blog listing. 

 

When we use filtering like yours to filter resources (typically hosted in HubDB) it is possible to build it in a way that updates the URL as the user filters, creating paths you can link to directly. For example: https://www.cassinfo.com/resources?solution__in=Telecom%2BExpense%2BManagement&content_type__in=Eboo...

Not 100% sure if this approach (which would require a developer to implement) is compatible with blogging tools, but it may not be needed now that you know about the tag pages?

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply, but this appears to be generic info, possibly AI-written, with a link to an irrelevant site you're possibly building links to, which is also the case for your other community reply, so neither are helpful.

Hi @SKrinks nice call out on the unhelpful response, I reported the reply to the moderators since it has link spam - if you click the ellipses (3 dot menut) on a reply, you'll find an option to report the reply should this happen again in the future.

Thanks Phil, that works perfectly for the blog. For the other pages such as https://www.amicus.com.au/library/projects the tag URLs don't work and we'd likely need a solution such as the one you shared. I'll get the client to check in with their developer on that.

 

Cheers,

Steve
