This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Tag Search


Tag search grabs your saved post tags and when a tag word or phrase is encountered in your post content, Tag Search automatically creates a link which is pointed to the search page to turn the tag into a search term. When the user clicks the linked tag word or phrase all posts found to contain the tag word or phrase will be returned in the results. This is different from similar plugins that link the tagged word or phrase to it’s tag page so only those posts sharing the tag are returned.

  • Settings link removed as it caused every plugin to have a settings link.


  • The “Give credit to plugin author” functionality has been removed (this means: no more site wide links).
  • Settings link now available from the plugins’ list. Also, the settings has been moved from its own menu to a submenu of the main WordPress settings.


  • Unfortunately, unknown due to a change in developer.


  • Added an on off switch so you can turn off Tag Search from admin if desired.
  • Now links only full words. Means, if tag to link is support and Tag Search finds the word ‘supportive’ Tag Search will now skip the word supportive instead of linking the ‘support’ part of the word ‘supportive’.


  • Changes alignment of footer credit to center instead of right.


  • Fixes undefined index on line 182.


  • Fixes error unexpected T_STRING on line 184
