search tags using previous tag search

Page  
1

Hi all,

I wonder if it’s possible to search for a tag and if you get a lot of results, you can search in these results using another tag narrowing down the possibilities.

I Tried AND but that didn’t give the expected results.

Is this possible or would it be a good suggestion for the forum. At this stage there aren’t that many topics, but as those will grow, we could use more advanced search possibilities.

Cheers

IMHO, search inside search results would be a great feature.
So from my opinion, you should file a bug report / suggestion.

Absolutely, version 2 of the Tag feature is under development right now, it will support “AND, OR, NOT” logic. And a few other cool things, like aliases and tag monitoring/following.

See QTWEBSITE-135

But search in search result is more then AND/OR etc

It could be a search via tags whose results are then searched by text or vice versa

Alright, that’s not on the table for now. But the original request will be fulfilled with AND searches:

I just voted for Gerolf’s idea. But it’s strange to see nobody else did yet. Maybe it’s better to split this up so that the right idea is voted for and not the original one.

Hi Denis,

I know. it only seems strange to me that people tell us in the forum they voted, but the counter was still 0.
Could be only they voted for the first suggestion, which is not as elaborated as Gerolf’s.

Cheers

PS : i think we are in another timezone. It’s 11:46 am here.
