Hiding post from everywhere (CLOSED)

I want to be able to use a hashtag to hide a given post from EVERYWHERE on the site, including archive lists.

I’ve used the tag #privatenewsletter in the past to keep emailed posts from showing, and it has worked. However, I now have a post (not an email), and even though it has the tag, it still shows up on both the home page and the archives page.

Here’s my routes.yaml:

  /subscribe/: members/subscribe
  /signup/: members/signup
  /signin/: members/signin
  /account/: members/account
    controller: channel
    template: archive

    permalink: /{slug}/
    template: home
    filter: tag:-hash-privatenewsletter

    permalink: /{slug}/
    template: index
    filter: tag:hash-privatenewsletter

  tag: /tag/{slug}/
  author: /author/{slug}/

What am I doing wrong?

I would start with the easiest possibility: is the tag spelled right?

For your archive page, how are you fetching your posts? Do you have a {{#get}} helper in your archive template that is filtering out the internal tag?

I thought about redoing the GET helpers for the various parts of the site, but I finally decided to use pages for this particular project instead. (One page for each race in this fall’s elections in our state.)
