Category Search Plugin (9 posts)

    I'll pay someone $50 to make a plug-in that will replace WordPress's search with a search that looks at the categories a post belongs to.

    To be clear, if a post belongs to the categories: fun, work, and home, and I search for "fun work" or "fun, work" this post will come up. If I search for "fun, work, food" this post will not come up. If I search for "work, home" this post will come up.

    Also, the query can be in a different order. If the post belongs to categories fun, work, and home... then searching for "fun home" or "home, work" or "work fun" should return that post as well.

    This shouldn't need a ton of explanation. It follows the same logic as a tag search on any major site using tagging. Let me know if you're interested.

    Post is in Fun, Work, Home

    Search for "fun, work, food" - NO post shown.
    Search for "work, home" - post WILL come up.

    That is logic I certainly cannot see.

    I may be missing a fundamental step in my thinking, but for the time being, I don't think so.

    If someone searches for "fun, work, food" then I don't want a post in "fun, work, home" to come up because it doens't contain 'food'. I'd like whatever posts that are returned to belong to every tag specified in the query. If someone didn't 'food' to be a tag, why would they search for it?

    I'm informed by Masquerade that the above plugin could suit your needs very well - and save you that $50 :)
