Welcome to Wiki Life Wednesday!
Today we're going to look at a neat trick where you can filter your tag results by more than one tag whilst in TechNet Wiki.
Journey with me to Top 10 Wiki Ninjas: Craig Lussier (SharePoint Architect MCC) and his 2K en-US tags. In that blog post, I mentioned how Craig Lussier made a great discovery.
First he wrote a Wiki article about having a stronger multilingual community. In that article, he mentioned his discovery of how to filter on more than one tag. I suggested that he post his discovery as a new article, which led to him writing this Wiki article...
SharePoint 2010: How to Find and Filter Wiki Articles by Language (en-US)
Based on that, I wrote the higher level Wiki article...
Wiki: How to Filter Tag Results by More than One Tag (en-US)
And that's the perspective we'll look at today...
How do you filter tag results by more than one tag?
The URL convention for filtering by multiple tags is as follows:
Where you replace [tag1], etc, with the URL encoded value for the tag.Example 1: I want to see all the Portuguese articles about SQL Server. So that means if I want only articles that contain the "pt-BR" and "SQL Server" tags, then I use this URL:
Note the following symbol changes:
Example 2: I want all the SharePoint articles written in English. That means I use the "en-US" and "SharePoint" tags:
Example 3: I want all the articles that are about PowerPivot, Excel, and are known issues. That means I use the "PowerPivot", "Excel", and "Known Issues" tags:
Remember to go back to the original article in case we end up adding more information there (Wiki: How to Filter Tag Results by More than One Tag (en-US) ).
Go give it a test spin, and post your creative tag results in the comments below!
Jump on in! The Wiki is warm.
