Show Posts that are in multiple categories (3 posts)

    I am looking for a plugin or hack to do the following: given 2 or more categories, show all posts that appear in all of these categories.

    This would preferably need to be dynamic (ie: I could go to example.com/categories/cat1+cat2/ and it would show me all posts that are in both cat1 and cat2). If it would not be dynamic, the second best way that I could think would be for me to define a new category in the admin, and assign the combination of other categories that define what displays for the new category (ie: I would define a new ComboCategory called Cat1Cat2, and set it to be all things that are in both cat1 and cat2).

    I have searched the various plugin and support databases and have so far come up empty handed (there are ways to show posts from a list of categories ORed together, I haven't found a way to easily AND them together).

    Any thoughts?

    If you compare wordpress categories with drupal taxonomy, does http://drupal.org/project/taxonomy_browser provide the functionality you are talking about?

    The taxonomy browser does look like it has the functionality needed.

    However, I believe that I have found a wordpress plugin that will help to do the job: Ultimate Tag Warrior. Set to automatically include categories as tags, I can then direct a user to /tags/Cat1+Cat2 to see a list of all posts that have been tagges with both category names (see here for more info).
