    Hi there!

    Search engine definitely needs much more features and they will be coming in the future. Already planned and in our "todo" list :).

    Possibility to search multiple tags have been added recently (and also filter out some tags).  

    Current possibilities include the logical "OR" and "NOT".  Great, thank you!

    The feature that I would appreciate the most is the logical "AND".  That's key to focus and limit the number of posts returned.  

    Example, I would like to be able to get all posts that are tagged searchtag1 and searchtag2  e.g. both tags must be present on posts to show.

    Might already be planned...  

    Thanks again for your great work!

    Yes. I would definitely support this feature request. I am loving the new tag search feature, but I am certainly missing the Boolean logic (AND, OR and NOT) aspect of searching. At the moment the default behaviour seems to be OR, and I would very much like to be able to narrow down my search results with the addition of AND, and to be able to exclude results using NOT. 

    You do great work, and I am impressed with the huge development work you have already done, but this would, in my opinion, be a very useful addition to your already rich feature set. I don’t know how difficult it would be to implement, but if you can do it I would be very happy. 

    Thanks!

    AND based search added. Works with apostrophes: 'tag1, tag2, tag3'

    It doesn't work at all. Returns a 'No posts found' every time.

    cee eye send us a ticket about it in that case with the details such as keyword etc so we can look into it. This feature request has been filled over 8 months ago.

    Thanks!
