I have a website with the following categories:

  • Videos
  • Pictures
  • Stories

And I have a lot of tags like: Funny, Awesome, Mind Blowing, Crazy, etc.

Is there a way I could filter lets say: Videos tagged as Crazy?

I know you can do:


But that would retrieve ALL content tagged as crazy, I just want Videos.

I've searched the WordPress documentation without luck.

  • You've gotten two straight answers. The question is what type of navigation do you want. – Nathan Powell Apr 4 '17 at 6:28

Another way that @toscho's solution made me try, and worked for me, is this scheme:

  • This method is much more elegant. @toscho's answer was more direct to the URL structure in question. – Nathan Powell Apr 4 '17 at 6:26

You can add the category as parameter:


This will list only the posts tagged crazy from category videos. Be aware the conditional tags will treat this as tag archive.

    Hi toscho, I just tried this filter without luck. Do I need a special template for this to work? – Johann Jan 9 '13 at 22:56
  • @Johann This should work out of the box, at least if you have permalinks enabled. I have tested it on my local setup. Hm … on one of my blogs it does not work, strange. – fuxia Jan 9 '13 at 23:02
  • I read that this is not native on Wordpress so that's why I was asking. I've permalinks enabled. – Johann Jan 9 '13 at 23:04
  • Try with native theme. Make sure to visit the Permalinks page. – Nathan Powell Apr 4 '17 at 6:18
