Url query filtering links not working in modern Sharepoint?

In classic SP tacking a url query onto a page containing a list was a handy way of filtering the content:

 page.aspx?FilterField1=<internal field name>&FilterValue1=<value> 

This no longer works in modern. I’ve tried:

  • adding the query to the news.aspx page:/_layouts/15/news.aspx?FilterField1=&FilterValue1=
  • creating a new page with an unfiltered news web part on it and creating a link with the above query added to the url

Has anyone found a way to get this to work? The alternative is to manually create a page with a filtered news web part on it but that doesn’t seem very “modern”.
