Categories-Tags Search

If my post over the MU has category and tags, does the Global Search Plugin find them?

For example I have posts over the MU in category "NEWS" and all of them has the TAG "Cool"

If I insert "NEWS" or "Cool" in the Global Search plugin, the results bring me the 3 posts?

I tried to do it without results.

The global search plugin, search only in Title and the Body of the post?

    Hi @electroasd

    thanks for posting on the forum.

    Unfortunately, it only searches in posts titles & content. I'm not sure of a way of searching via category/tags.

    though I think that would be ideal for a future release.

    I will move this to the features & feedback section. hopefully some interest will see it added to a future release.

    Thank you very much for your answer.

    I will be very useful for someone to search with keywords (like categories and tags) to find exactly specific informations!

    Than you for moving my question to the features & feedback section!

    I'll take a look, but the issue we have is that whilst we can probably easily add in searches of post_tags or categories, it gets trickier to add in searches of other custom taxonomies that may have been added to posts / page or even to custom post types - which the global site search also searches.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
