Wiki: How to Filter Tag Results by More than One Tag

Wiki: How to Filter Tag Results by More than One Tag

These steps come from Craig Lussier.

The URL convention for filtering by multiple tags is as follows:
http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/tags/[tag1]/[tag2]/[tag3]/default.aspx
        
Where you replace [tag1], etc, with the URL encoded value for the tag.

NOTES:
  • Currently there is no known limit for the number of tags you can use. (So you can filter with a lot more than three tags.)
  • Use the plus symbol ("+") in the URL to designate a space.
  • Use "_2D0_" in the URL to designate a dash ("-").
  • This gives you an "And" filter, meaning that each time you add a tag, you narrow your results.
  • There is currently no known solution for "Or" and "Not" filters in using this method.
       
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:
http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/tags/pt_2D00_BR/SQL+Server/default.aspx
        
Note the following symbol changes:
  • A dash should be changed to "_2D00_" instead.
  • A space should be changed to a "+" instead.

Example 2: I want all the SharePoint articles written in English. That means I use the "en-US" and "SharePoint" tags:

 http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/tags/SharePoint/en_2D00_US/default.aspx

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:

http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/tags/PowerPivot/Excel/known+issues/default.aspx
