Linking to categories or tags

You can add links that lead visitors to filtered lists of content by category or tag. This can encourage visitors to stay engaged by finding content that interests them.

A popular approach is to add navigation links to different categories of one Blog Page. You can also use this method for products, gallery/project images, events, and album tracks.

Tip: Product Pages can automatically include their own category navigation. To learn more, visit the guides on the Classic and Advanced Products Pages.

Before you begin

To follow this guide, you'll need:

  • A collection page with at least one item, like a Blog Page with at least one blog post.
  • Any categories or tags you want a link for added to at least one collection item. To learn how to categorize and tag content, visit Adding tags and categories.

Create a category or tag navigation link

To create a navigation link that leads to a page of content in a specific category or with a specific tag:

  1. In the Home Menu, click Pages.
  2. Click the + icon next to the section where you want to add the link.
  3. In the Create New Page menu, select Link.
  4. In the Link Title box, enter the name of the link as you want it to appear in the menu.
  5. Click the gear icon to open the link editor, then click the Page tab.
  6. Click into Search to open a menu of all the pages on your site.
  7. Select the collection page you want to filter, then select a category, tag, or both from the corresponding drop-down menus. If you select both a category and a tag, only items with both the category and tag will appear when visitors click the link.
  8. Click Save in the link editor, then click Save again to add the link to your navigation.

When visitors click this link, they'll see a filtered list of content with the category and/or tag from that collection page. Repeat this step for every category or tag you want to add to your navigation.

Tip: To create a drop-down menu of these links, add multiple links to a folder in Main Navigation. You can name that folder something like CategoriesTags, or Topics. To learn more, visit Using folders.

Create other category or tag links

To set up a category or tag link elsewhere on your site:

  1. Open the link editor for a Button BlockCover Page action, image clickthrough, or Text Block and click the gear icon.
  2. Click into Search to open a menu of all the pages on your site.
  3. Select the collection page you want to filter, then select a category, tag, or both from the corresponding drop-down menus. If you select both a category and a tag, only items with both the category and tag will appear when visitors click the link.
  4. Click Save in the link editor. Depending on the link, you may need to click Apply or Save again to confirm the changes.

Built-in category/tag links

Some page types display links to filtered content automatically:

  • Events Pages - "Filtering by:" text appears before the category or tag. The text style follows the body text.
  • Products Pages - For categories, the category navigation shows that category as active.
  • Blog Pages - In some templates, the filtering category or tag displays at the top with accompanying text. You can choose the number of posts that appear on the landing page in Blog Page Settings.

Next steps

Continue categorizing or tagging content in your collection. The filter will include collection items with the same category or tag automatically.
