Let me give you some more details.
site.linux is a custom collection
site.linux has many ‘pages’ in the collection. All pages are represented by a markdown file (e.g. myPage.md, index.md, …). Some of these markdown files have the nav array in their frontmatter.
For example (_linux/articles/index.md):
headline: Explore Linux OS
title: &title Linux Fun
description: &description Linux
keywords: &keywords keywords, here, lots, of, them
modified_time: &moded 2018-01-04
Then, in a template or template partial, I’d like to filter all of the pages in the linux custom collection by the nav.actual #. Say, find all pages in a collection that have nav.actual == 1.0
Does that help paint a better picture than before about how/why I’m trying to sort pages?
Happy to give more insight if I’m explaining this poorly. Thanks for the help thus far.
