I was hoping for some advice on the best way to implement filtering by lots of categories/tags for CMS items on a page.
I tried to use multi-ref for the categories, but quickly ran into the 5 items limit which meant I couldn’t filter by the categories not pulled in.
How do you guys go about structuring this when you have lots of categories to filter by?

Hey @Graffiki, looks like you figured it out? I see a list of the categories on the page.
Unfortunately not, it’s just a list of the categories. I’m trying to figure out a way to filter by all of those categories.
As there’s more than 5, I can’t use the nested CMS to pull in the categories for each company to then filter by using Mixitup.
Ah got it, I misunderstood your first post.
I think what you’ve done is correct for most cases.
But, for what you want there are 2 solutions I can think of:
- Use a Text Field and write comma separated text/strings and use custom code to assign the strings as a class for mixitup to capture. this solution is a work-around not ideal.
- You break the categories, say by Gender, Type, Style, Utility. Still some limitations to this because you can only add 1 nested collection.
No worries, thanks for the suggestions though. Both seem like limited workarounds and I’m really surprised that there doesn’t seem to be a better way!
