    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.

    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.

    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.

    Not a problem. :)

    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.

    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.
