I created five categories(ALL,Breakfast,Pizza,Lunch,Dinner). in home page i am displaying these categories as a navigation And for dispalying data in home page based on categories created one page type for six pages(page1,page2,Page3,Page4,Page5,Page6). Based on categories i want to display these six pages data. If i click on one All category i want all 6 pages data, if i click on Breakfast i want page2,page3 and page5 data only and click on ramaing categories same like different pages data only. I didn't understand how to gegt these pages based on categories. Can any one help me programmatically.

If it's a smaller amount of pages it's probably easiest to work with the full list of pages in memory and filter based on the Categories-property using Linq.

An option would be to add a querystring to each navigation item. If the querystring value is the CategoryId int you don't have to look up the Id before filtering.

Hi @Pawan,

Another option if you're querying a large quantity of items would be hitting the search index to retrieve this information whether it's Solr or Episerver Find. Click this link to find examples on how to filter content with Episerver Find specifically (the first one is actually a filter on categories). Hope this helps!
