Clickable Tags - Advanced Search

BGA Feature Request

It'd be great if all properties of a game (designers, publishers, categories, mechanics, etc.) were clickable to view all of the games with the same tags.

Arguably, this would be enhancing the search page with additional filter/search criterias on these fields, so then all the pages could easily link to the general game search page with passing in the correct parameters via the URL.

I love this idea.  Nice one!  Glad Trent says it is easily implemented.

It's done! You can click on published year, designer, artists, etc to search by them now!

It works!

Purely curious, but looks like for mechanics and categories it searches by a GUID or some form of internal name.  Which, is 100% functional and shouldn't matter.  But was curious if option to do it by "friendly" names.  May lead to technical challenges if you ever implement an Advanced Search page/feature where it'd have to translate each first to pass to the search page. :-)Anyways, keep up the great work Trent!  Loving what you're doing here.

I would prefer to have friendly names (same for the game pages too) but that's just in the pipeline for the future. It was a design choice early on to make a couple specific types of searching easier ;)

This is a good idea. I have the functionality built in already but have been missing a lot of data. I think I should just put the links in and see it as a motivation for users to contribute when they see a certain search result with low numbers.
