en WordPress.com Forums › Widgets Search by Categories Author Posts February 3, 2011 at 5:57 am #564102 valleyfinderMember I’d like to be able to have readers search my posts by categories. I am using the ‘search’ widget but all it seems to do is search the content of each post. I’ve heard of using hidden text HTML to do this but that seems to be an illegal move. Would using tags help with any of this? Any help or advice to be able to do this? I’m pretty green to all of this so anything would be helpful! The blog I need help with is valleyfinder.wordpress.com. February 3, 2011 at 6:33 am #564311 raincoasterMember Using tags will not help: tags and categories work interchangeably here. I recommend you use Google, and search Searchterm (eg “pandas drawing butterfly portraits”) site:yoursite.wordpress.com/category/whatever Author Posts The topic ‘Search by Categories’ is closed to new replies.
