I like the search by tag function on Super User. I can search any post tagged with both and using [excel] [macro]. Is there similar function for TiddlyWiki?


It sounds like what you want is either MatchTagsPlugin by Eric Shulman (The TiddlyTools guy) or YourSearchPlugin by Udo Borkowski.

Both let you do full operator-enhanced tag searches but their syntax and other features differ.

MatchTagsPlugin lets you set up a new search field which displays its results in a new tiddler in a configurable format and will search only tags using a syntax like this:

excel AND (macro OR script) AND NOT virus

If the provided interfaces don't do it for you, take a look at what I did using InlineJavascriptPlugin.

YourSearchPlugin modifies the existing search field to support a richer query syntax (and, optionally, a new results popup) and you can specify that a given entry should only match tags by prefixing it like this:

#excel (#macro or #script) not #virus

You could also poke around on TiddlyHub to see if anything else might meet your needs.
