Auto selecting category


I have a tracker that has a drop down field. I want a page that will display all tracker items with "x" as the drop down category. Now I have a tracker filter, but I cant see a way to auto select "x" to be displayed.

Please help,

It would actually be even better if there was a way to do it all behind the scenes. Another worlds not have the user do any selecting. Just navigate to the page and see all trackers with category "x" displayed

United States

If you use a plain TRACKERLIST to show the tracker items on a wiki page,  you can use the filterfield and exactvalue parameters to only display specific tracker items. 

For example, this:

{trackerlist trackerId="1" filterfield="21" exactvalue="foo" }


would display all the tracker items from Tracker 1 in which the value of Field 21 is foo.

See the docs for full details: https://doc.tiki.org/plugintrackerlist

If the field that you're filtering is a Category tracker field, I think you may have to use the category's ID instead of its name, but I'm not sure.
