URL to show only open topics with a tag?


(Joe Buhlig) #1

I’ve done quite a bit of searching for this one and even considered a custom plugin for it. But for the life of me I can’t nail down how to create a URL (outside of the search URL) that shows me the open topics for a tag.

What I’m trying to do is create a navigation item that links to open topics tagged active within a given category. These topics are for discussing and working on hardware changes. As we complete the work, we close the topics. Which means we want to filter out the closed topics.

I’ve tried the standard ?status=open parameter but those aren’t working on tag pages and appear to have been broken for some time. So I guess I’m looking for an alternative.

Any guidance?

I think we are missing this feature, I don’t mind a PR to add support for the param

I’m up for giving this a try if you can point me in the right direction. I’ve tried finding where to do this and keep failing. I think I’m overlooking something simple.

I don’t think this solves everything, but it at least makes it possible to use tags as a query string parameter. This is currently broken.

I found another piece to the puzzle. The `tags’ parameter was being removed from the URL when you try to use it in the URL.

I have a category where all bugs are posted. When they are resolved they are closed by the dev team.

I am trying to see a list of all the open bugs and for that I am accessing the URL:

https://www.example.com/discourse/tags/bug?status=open

This shows me all topics with the tag bug but the expected result was to only show the open topics with the tag bug.

Is there another way to achieve the same objective ?

Try it this way: Discourse Meta

That worked.

Thanks!!
