Keyword and Tag Filtering

Keyword Filtering allows you to only display posts that contain a specific keyword.

In addition to keyword filtering you can also manually add Tags to posts in the TINT Editor. Tags act just like keywords, but they are not visible on your public TINT.

Keywords

Keywords can be used to quickly find posts in a TINT. In order to search for keywords in a TINT, click the magnifying glass icon, and then enter your search term. Here, we’ll search for "social" within our TINT Instagram account:

Notice that each post that is returned contains the text "social" on the post itself:

Beyond searching for keywords on a TINT to find posts, you can also embed TINTs that only show posts with a specific keyword (more on that at the end of this article).

Tags

Tags can be manually added to any post in your TINT. Whenever you add a Tag, it will be treated just like a keyword when you filter your posts.

In order to add a Tag to a single post, enter the CONTENT panel in the TINT Editor, and then click the Tag icon above the post:

In the pop-up that appears, enter the text you’d like to use for the tag, and then click "Save":

 

If you have a tag that has been used previously, it will appear once you begin typing the keyword

After saving, the Tag will be indicated on the bottom of the post, and the Tag icon will become purple on the top of the post:

Note that these indicators are not visible on your public-facing TINT itself:

You can also add Tags to multiple posts at the same time. Simply click the checkboxes above the desired posts, and then click the Tag icon:

Tagged posts can be searched for just like keywords, but they must be preceded by the "+" symbol (e.g. "+egc"):

Embedding a Keyword Filtered TINT

If you haven’t embedded a TINT before, please click here for more information.

To embed a keyword-filtered TINT, click "Advanced Options" when generating your embed code, and then enter the desired keyword into the Default Keyword field:

Once you’ve copied the TINT embed code into your website’s HTML, you’ll see a TINT that only contains posts with your specified Keyword:

Embedding a Tag Filtered TINT

For Tags, the process is the same, but you must precede the tag with a "+" symbol in the Default Keyword field:

Once you’ve added the TINT embed code into your website’s HTML, you’ll see a TINT that only contains posts with your specified Tag:

Displaying a Keyword Filtered TINT

You can also use keyword filtering on displays, by appending your display URL with an additional parameter. However, this should not be used for events where live updates are necessary: auto-updates do not work when this additional parameter is included.

To display a keyword filtered TINT, append your display URL with a query parameter. Here we’ll use social, which we’ve been using in the previous keyword examples:

Displaying a Tag Filtered TINT

To display a Tag filtered TINT, append your display URL with a tags parameter. Here we’ll use egc, which we’ve been using as a Tag in the previous examples:

Again, please note that auto-updates are disabled when you append the display URL with this additional parameter.

Additional Notes

  • Posts that are returned via Keyword Filtering are only indexed on our servers for three months. That means that once posts become older than three months they won't appear on TINTs using a Default Keyword. Conversely, posts that are returned via Tag Filtering are indexed indefinitely.
  • If you’re on a plan that supports access to our API, you can use the query parameter within the feed endpoint to filter for keywords and Tags. For more information click here.
