How to filter post by category or tag in Jekyll

April 22, 2017

Jekyll follows liquid templating and allows a greater customization of filtering pages, tags, posts and categories.

To filter a list of post based on one category:

for post in site.posts
      if post.categories contains 'Travel'
         <a href="#">post.title</a>
      endif
endfor

For the tag, replace category with tag.

for post in site.posts
      if post.tags contains 'Travel'
         <a href="#">post.title</a>
      endif
endfor

Contains can only search strings. You cannot use it to check for an object in an array of objects. Left argument is case sensitive

You can also use If, Else or Unless instead of contains. More about IF/Else condition checking in liquid templating here
