URL search parameters...with ',' and '+'? (2 posts)

    I have been building my own custom 'Advanced Search' page and I have had some success in getting it to work. Basically I understand that when searching on tags and such that I can do an "AND" search by doing something like:

    http://myblog.com/?tag=apple+orange

    This will return all posts that are tagged with apple AND with orange...but leave out those tagged with one or the other only...or not at all.

    I was reading a bit through Google searches on this subject and I came across this website: http://wpguy.com/articles/multiple-tag-category-queries/
    which claims that one can do an OR search by separating the tags by commas, e.g.:

    http://myblog.com/?tag=apple,orange

    This should return results that are tagged with apple, oranage or both. This I cannot get to work though. Is there a way to do this through URL arguments or not?

    Thanks!

    I think you can just use the tag url and not query function:

    http://mysite.com/tag/comedy,conan/

    I think there should be post available or it will say no found, but not sure.
