    Combined URL for category & tag?


      Hi, folks!


      Is there a syntax for the URL that I can use to show content in a particular category filtered to a specific tag?


      Background:  In our staging area for our external Support Community & Knowledge Base, Categories = Products and Tags = KB review stages (edit, tech review). So, for example, to make it easier for Product A subject matter experts o see what they need to review for technical correctness, I need a URL that will only display content for (category = Product A) + (tag = tech review).


      Is this possible? I've had no luck with it. Am I missing something?

          I've done something to resolve a similar need.  But I haven't explored it much further than this simple fix that worked for us.  But you may need something more complicated.


          I basically navigated to the content tab (either within a place or for the entire community, depending on what you want to "search").  But if you are including categories, then you'd have to go to the place's content tab, since you can't see categories at the top level. 


          Here is what I did:

          1. Navigate to the place and select the Content tab
          2. Select the category (in my examples below, the category was Social Intranet)
          3. Select Filter by Tag
          4. Choose the relevant tag(s)  (in my examples below I chose place creation, jive, and/or set-up)
          5. Then I copied the URL that now appears in my browser window and created a link within our support team's place.  Anytime they click on that link, it returns the results for that place with that category and tag.


          Here are a few examples that I just randomly grabbed.  One of them included two tags (so the content needed to have both tags in order to show up in the results).

          I've done something similar with keywords.  Here is one for the main content tab where it was a filter by tag and key words
