    first thanks for havin WordPress.

    While developing a new site with it Im am looking for the possibility to display related post links based on one filtered tag ordered by categories.

    What I mean: there is a topic tagged A,B,C,D, where A is the main tag (=topic identifier) and i want to display links to other A=topic related posts ordered by category (ie. A in News, Reviews etc.)

    While I am using the Simple Tags plugin, it doesnt filter me the first tag, Simple Tag displays all tags (or all related posts), ordered randomly.

    Already found a work around splitting the A tag archive into its categories (http://wordpress.org/support/topic/152904), and thought I could use it also on a single entry page, but cannot call the $current_tag = single_tag_title("", false) there - no result. Obviously it doesnt know which tag to pull? Thats why I tring to find a way to filter only the A tag.

    Any idea?
    Ive been searchin this forum for hours...
    Thanks a loot!

    ps. tried to figure out the following pages, but didnt give me clue:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_post_custom_values (for using an extra custom field for A)
    (doesnt give a result)
    ( Only use first tag?)
