We're using a content query web part (CQWP) to pull a list into a sub-site from the root site of the site collection. Is it possible to define more than two filters on a CQWP? Any reason why the CQWP has been hard-coded with a maximum of two filters only? Thanks.

Thanks, sorry, you're right, Anders -- it's 3 filters :) – Alex C Dec 5 '11 at 13:57
