Plugin to filter content by multiple tags (7 posts)

    I visit a site which has a neat feature to surf content, by filtering tags. Essentially it starts with a tag cloud, then adds each tag you click to the filter...

    Click Tag => Fruit
    Shows all posts tagged fruit (http://www.site.com/?tag=fruit)

    Click Tag => Bananas
    Shows all posts tagged fruit and bananas (http://www.site.com/?tag=fruit+bananas)

    Click Tag => Blue
    Shows all posts tagged fruit, bananas and blue (http://www.site.com/?tag=fruit+bananas+blue)

    Does anyone know of a plugin that could do this? I'm not capable of coding it myself, and think the feature would be great for people. Imagine searching for blue cars in New York, or recipes with rice and chicken...

    Any pointers?

    Thanks,
    n

    i made a rough one some days ago

    i still need to improve it by hiding the tags combination that will lead to no articles but works

    Thanks, this is exactly what i meant. I'll give it a try over the weekend.

    I have had problems in the past with Tag Clouds being very heavy on server load, as I have 18,000 posts, and 5,000 tags. I'll let you know how it goes.

    with that number of posts that would be a great test, thanks

    sadly i know for sure i haven't made it that good on performance, you might want to consider installing wp-cache or something like that

    actually with that number of posts and tags i'm not sure it would be possible to use this kind of browsing unless you have a very good server, let me know

    Just wondering how this is working out? My self and a small team are looking for a multi-tag filtering widget. Has this been updated? Is there any more info?

    Thanks

    I'd love to see that feature in action.

    What site did you see it at? Thanks.
