EPiServer Find: Filtering on Category not working



In my current project, we have a block where the editors can add Category and in a list those blocks will be listed based on a certain criteria from Category. See the screenshots below:

The problem here is that the filtering is not working properly, every time as result is returned the entire list of blocks. We use Episerver Find for this.

The block looks as follows:

The categories are indexed.


Is there someone that worked with something similar? Any ideas are welcome.

Thank you!

It looks like you are using Geta Categories? If so then I think the built in Find category extensions will not work

As David said that's Geta Categories. There's a separate nuget package

Which can be used to work with Find and has some extensions and such for searching by category

Thanks Scott, a far more thorough answer than mine :)

Hello! Thank you for your responses :) 

The categories used there are created in Admin -> Config -> Edit Categories. See the images below.

Are those Geta Categories?

No, These are the Episerver default categories

Can you share the payload of EPiserver Find? to get the better idea how they are index against the content?
