How do I sort pages by the number of labels they have?


My problem is we have a list of pages, each page containing a description of an issue being experienced by users, some issues are encountered by only one client some by many e.g.

Issue 1 (Labels: User1)

Issue 2 (Labels: User1, User2, User3)

Issue 3 (Labels: User1, User3)

What I want to be able to do, on the parent page is rank the list of issues by the number of labels associated with them, and if possible show the number of labels associated with the page.


Page | Count

Issue 2 | 3

Issue 3 | 2

Issue 1 | 1

Any help ont his woudl be greatly appreciated. I can get a plugin installed for thsi if it's needed.

Hi Niall

I'm not sure if there's a plugin or macro able to do exactly what you mentioned.

However, did you try using the Content By Label Macro? Could be helpful. :)

Thanks Bruna, definitely helps me out.


You can do that with the plugin Reporting from Customware



Thanks Cyrille, unfortunately the licence cost is too much, but looks like it would work.

In the end, as purcasing plugin Reporting from Customware is not an option I've used the Cheklist Macro with Checklist Labels it doesn't give me a count but does allow me to see the data more clearly..


Issue | User1 | User2 | User3 |

Issue1 | x | | |

Issue2 | x | x | x |

Issue3 | x | | x |
