Is it possible to apply condition tags to browser sequence?

Hi all

I am applying condition tags in my project at topic level (not section level) and when I generate the output using Frameless preset, I can filter the content using these tags. This way, only the topics with the selected tag are displayed in the table of content.

However, as I defined a browse sequence, when I move among the topics using the previous and next buttons, the topics that do not have the condition tag selected are displayed.

In summary, topics that do not have the selected tag are not displayed in the TOC but I can access them using the browse sequence.

Is there any way that I can only navigate among the topics that have the selected tag?

Thanks in advance

Thank you both for your help. I didn't clearly understand what it means to apply a conditional tags.

Reviewing the Compass Travel project, it was clear to me.

Thanks again.

I did a quick test in the Compass Travel project and I get message something like "This topic was filtered out" when I have a filter selected and use the Next/Previous buttons in the Studio skin.

 

Can you try with the sample projects to see if it's a problem specific to your project?

Compass Travel has some complex tagging. I was pretty sure that the bug whereby excluding a topic did not remove it from the browse sequence had been fixed. I used a simpler test and with a tag applied to one topic and nothing done to the browse sequence, that topic was skipped in the sequence when I applied an expression to exclude that tag.

 

That establishes that excluding a topic with a tag from the build excludes it from the browse sequence. However, I am then confused by the post.

 

In summary, topics that do not have the selected tag are not displayed in the TOC but I can access them using the browse sequence.

 

If a topic does not have a tag applied, it will appear in the TOC, which it the opposite. Are you tagging the topic or the topic entry in the TOC? They are two different things and the latter does not exclude the topic from the build, only from appearing in the TOC.
