Filter discussion web part by blog category RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a blog site with a category web part as navigation.



    When i click on CategoryA, it opens : /Lists/Categories/Category.aspx?Name=CategoryA

    When i click on CategoryB, it opens : /Lists/Categories/Category.aspx?Name=CategoryB

    In category.aspx, i have added a discussion webpart, i have also added a column which is a lookup field which lists all the categories.

    So that when you create a post, you tag the post with the correct category.

    Now when i provide a filter from the category webpart to my discussion webpart:

    The only column i can select from categories is "category with link", next screen i select the field category from the discussion web part.

    But this does not seem to work. Clicking on CategoryA or CategoryB displays all post's regardless of the category in the  post.


    Not sure if this is the way to do this, so any help is appreciated :)

    I'm currently using wss3.
