Search in own blog by tags (7 posts)

    I am new to wordpress so I don't know if this is common or something just not possible. When I use the search function on my blog and I type in a known tag for one of my posts nothing appears. It just says no post found. Is it possible to find specific posts by tags? Right now only my categories are working correctly. However if I click on a tag from the tag cloud it works correctly. Is is possible to add tags in the search engine and not only search by categories? That is the purpose of tags after all. Thank you.

    Thanks Michael.

    xavior039: I'm waiting on a few contributers who've come forward and stated they're working on tag search for WP 2.3 since I'm swamped. So, check for updates and I expect it to be released soon.

    Got very same problem. Doesn't search tags. What's more stupid, I got two blogs, exactly same version. One searches tags. The other doesn't.

    Any ideas? So far I'll try using the plugin mentioned, maybe it'll do me some good.
