    I have list which i filter with the help of categories. Is there a way to show the chosen category somewhere on the page?

    Either highlighted in the list of categories or as a text/header above the list.

    Best regards

    Hi Andreas,

    In case you are using the Build-in functionality to filter the List items in the designer - the easiest way is just to add a content block above the list widget with the Category/ies chosen, as the Categories will not be changed dynamically.

    In case you change that filter dynamically can you share more information about it?

    I'm not using that functionality, does that require that you create pages for every category or how do you set it up?

    I simply have an expandable list with questions that have been assigned 1 or more categories. And on that page I have added an category widget with the setting to only show categories that at least one of the list items have. 

    When you select a category you are directed to a autogenerated page with

    "-in-category/categories/<categoryname>"

     

    Sorry for spamming your forum :)
