CMS filter by multiple-reference field

Currently, you can filter items in a collection by the same field (e.g. “current category” of an article), but only if that field is a text or single-reference field. I’m trying to filter articles that have the same tags as the tags of the current article (for a “recommended for you” section), so I need to be able to filter using a multiple-reference field, since each article has multiple tags.

Hope that makes sense. Great work, all. Webflow is awesome—has revolutionized my life.

Same challenge here + how to make boolean operations between tags to filter like: “BIG (and) RED” = list items that are tagged BIG and RED tags.

I know this creates complexity but it is possibly the most common use case when using tags to enable quick narrow down filtering of larger collections.

Same here, this is a high priority feature for me. Been struggling with workarounds for this for rather too long…!

Webflow’s traction keeps growing - we bring it to new customers too.

Advanced filtering could help to build smarter customer need driven landing pages.

My vision is a simplified screen of just handful of main topics. When clicked one, there would be a cloud of related sub-level tags (content hints) which act on AND operand = customer picks all those that make one logical target = “Oculus” “Industrial” “over 50.000 €” = they get filtered references matching those tags.

That type of approach gets customers fast to the references they are looking for.

Not a coder, guess this could be doable as a custom thing.
