searching by multiple or subtractive tags

  1. I know that you can search a blog by specific tags, like say, "music". Does this feature work in reverse? Would it be possible to search all the posts on a blog that are not tagged "music"? For that matter, can you search using more than one tag, say all posts that are tagged "music" and "jazz" and "fifties"?

    Thanks.

  2. Using a search engine would probably be best actually. Considering that something like 95% of the blogs aren't using tags (at least on my own WPMu install) except for Uncategorized, that would probably be the best method of doing so.

  3. Thanks drmike. That's a great tips for searching other blogs. I was also curious to see if it could be used for creating a specific type of RSS feed, but that was for more of a lark than any pressing need. I appreciate the suggestion.

  4. Not a problem. :)

  5. just a bump for this suggestion. given that wordpress does this out of the box now, i'd love to be able to build, say, wordpress.com/tag/pug,loldog/feed, since the loldog blog redirects to feedburner.

  6. good idea.

    Matt already said "no" ;-)

    also: "Search on Global Tags / Advanced Tag Surfer" -- must be too impenetrable/unintelligible idea for TA of .com, as it ended up in the 'Topics with no replies' view.
