Usage of the Confluence Search Syntax
In this example we select all blogs with the word Confluence in the title. The whole syntax is documented in the article Confluence Search Syntax.
Filter by metadata
How to determine the name of the metadata field and some more examples can be found in Use the Communardo Metadata Add-on with the Enterprise Theme News Macros.
Filter by the User Profile
If you use the Metadata Add-on and the User Profile Add-on by Communardo you can combine these to use the profile information of the current user. This allows you to provide a very user specific listing.
upc.currentUser.Location will be replaced by the Location of the user (if such a field exists). More information about this feature can be found in Use the Communardo User Profiles Add-on with the Enterprise Theme News Macros
