Filter expressions for content items

Following is a list of examples of filter expressions’ syntax. You can use these examples to create your own filter expressions when you configure the widgets.

Filter by category

Category.Contains("{Taxonomy ID}")
Category.Contains("{Taxonomy ID}") AND Category.Contains("{Taxonomy ID}")(Category.Contains("{Taxonomy ID}") OR Category.Contains("{Taxonomy ID}"))

NOTE: You can view the ID of each classification by adding the Tags widget to a page, clicking its Edit button, deleting the contents of field TaxonomyID, and clicking Save.

Filter by tags

Tags.Contains("{Taxonomy ID}")
(Tags.Contains("{Taxonomy ID}") OR Tags.Contains("{Taxonomy ID}"))

Filter by custom fields (for Number custom field)

CustomFiledName > 0
CustomFiledName = 7

Filter by News title

Title.Contains("News Title")

Filter by News content

Content.Contains("long established fact")

Filter by Author

Author = "author"
Author != " author"

Filter by publication date

PublicationDate <= DateTime.UtcNow // Shows all
PublicationDate < DateTime.UtcNow // Shows all
PublicationDate > DateTime.UtcNow // Shows none

Filter by date logged

To filter only items where the date component of the value specified in the DateLogged field matches the date component of DateTime.UtcNow use:
Visible = true AND Status = Live AND DateLogged.HasValue AND DateLogged.Value.Date = DateTime.UtcNow.Date
To filter events by EventStart and EventEnd dates, for example events that from 1st of January 2014 and end till 4th of January 2014 use:
EventStart > (01/01/2014) AND EventEnd < (04/01/2014)
