How to exclude a tag from the get helper

I want to exclude certain tags from the get helper.

I have found someone with the same question and this was the solution:

So I’ve tried the solution, but it isn’t doing anything on my page what I mean with this is that all tags are displayed, including the nft one. I tried adding ‘’ after the = and nft, but that returned no tags at all.

In this case I want to exclude the tag “nft” which is the slug for it.
Any clue why this isn’t working?
Also can someone point out how I can add multiple tags to that filter?

            <div class="tags-listing">
                    {{#get 'tags' limit='all' filter=tag:-hash-nft include='count.posts' order='count.posts desc'}}
                        {{#foreach tags}}
                            <li><a href="/tag/{{name}}">{{name}}</a></li>

Try this:

{{#get 'tags' limit='all' filter='tag:-nft' include='count.posts' order='count.posts desc'}}

The filter expression should definitely be wrapped in quotes. But if you’re filtering for the tag nft the filter should be tag:-nft. The filter tag:-hash-nft would filter for #nft.

When I do that it shows no tags at all. The ul is empty.
I’m not sure why :s

I have tried a few different filters, but when I use the filter nothing shows up anymore.
I have a feeling the filter isn’t working at all

I just spun up a local test instance to properly look into.

This is the filter that works for me:

{{#get 'tags' limit='all' filter='slug:-nft' include='count.posts' order='count.posts desc'}}

Took me a while of trying different things, but I dug through the documentation and had a lightbulb moment :wink:

Have a look:

  • property - a path representing the field to filter on

Reading this, it made me realise that a tag doesn’t have a field called “tag” – only posts and pages have that.

So, I quickly jumped over to the documentation on the tag context to double-check – and indeed, the field is the slug.

Hope this works now (it does on my end :smiley:)

Thank you this worked!

Good catch, thanks for debugging it! I’ve updated the original post as well.


Nice! Perhaps you could also add the quotes?

Arggg, thanks… Done!
