Search by multiple tags still does not work in Together-forum e.g. when using the search-box in Tags-section: https://together.jolla.com/tags/ You can try this typing "bug email" to the search-field, and see how you don't get any results, eventhough there are 72 quesions that have both of these tags.

@jjaone would it be better idea to point the workaround in the details then, as the title states the whole portal

There is no workaround for the problem of "multiple tags search" being broken in Together (in the Tags-section of the forum).

@simo Rather than giving me advice what to do abt it just close or delete this question if you think it's not relevant, correct, clear enough. Edit if you want, or maybe do another question that is done exactly the way you want.

Stop removing comments that you disagree with (or disagree with you), @jjaone. Do that once more and this question will be flagged offensive and your behaviour noted.

@jjaone Thanks, leaving this conversation now... it's your question, not a wiki, so I'm leaving decision about editing it to yourself.

IMHO, the search in https://together.jolla.com/tags/ works like it is supposed to.

It says "search for tags" and that is what it does, it searches for tags, not questions containing those tags. When you type in "bug email", the result is "Nothing found", because there isn't a tag which would match that string.

Of course, the search could be changed to split the string and match any of the terms listed, but I don't see how that would be useful.

It could be useful to search with mutiple tags. E.g. questions that have been tagged with "email" and "bug". That's what IMO the search-box also suggests.

But.. but... it searches tags, not questions, like the search box says :) You can search questions with multiple tags by using the tag seach in the question list page side bar

Ok, right. I'll accept that. Gotta try if I can re-open this and close with this Answer as the right one.

foss4ever ( 2014-01-23 15:10:24 +0300 )edit

Yep, done. Case closed. Thanks.

Searching for tags in the regular search field works really well, try e.g. update release-notes
The same result can be achieved by manually constructing a URL, e.g. https://together.jolla.com/questions/scope:all/sort:age-desc/tags:update,release-notes/page:1/

As @Keto already pointed out twice here, the tag search field just searches for existing tags. Though I have to admit I also misinterpreted that for years until I found this Q&A today.
