Using Design Manager, Is it possible to filter the Content Query web part using the Wiki Categories? For example, if the current wiki page has a category of InfoPath, the Content Query web part should list all pages with the same category?

Below is my attempt but I keep getting an error message Cannot save all of the property settings for this Web Part. One or more errors have occurred. See below for details.

Below is the only error I could find:

EDIT 09/04/2018 I found this post where it provided part of the answer. In SharePoint Designer, after I pasted the HTML code for Content Query, I made the following changes:

  • DataMappingViewFields="{List GUID}"
  • DataMappings="Description:|ImageUrl:{543bc2cf-1f30-488e-8f25-6fe3b689d9ac},PublishingRollupImage,Image;|Title:{fa564e0f-0c70-4ab9-b863-0177e6ddd247},Title,Text;|LinkUrl:{List GUID}
  • FilterDisplayValue1="[PageFieldValue:column name]"
  • FilterValue1="[PageFieldValue:column name]"

As the post suggested, the original List GUID was different from the actual Pages library GUID. To bypass the error message from the Design Manager Content Query UI, I just typed any text in the filter value and replaced it with [PageFieldValue:column name].

In my test, the [PageFieldValue:Wiki Categories] can be applied and it works as expected.

Type the display name of the site or list column, not the internal name, compare the results.

  • @JoannW_MSFT sorry for the late response. I finally got a chance to test this out and I'm still getting the same error message. Ignoring it and pasting the HTML snippet, my page layout just displays Content Query without displaying any links with the same category as the current page. Commented Sep 4, 2018 at 19:52
  • It works if I actually type the filter value but I can't get it to work using [PageFielValue:FieldName] Commented Sep 4, 2018 at 20:15
