a sorted affair

Gooood moooooorning, Milliways!

Let's talk about fun things we can do with tags! A lot of you probably know this already, but you can narrow posts down by more than one pup. Like so:

http://milliways-bar.dreamwidth.org/tag/[name],[name+name],[name+name+name]?mode=all

So for example, if I wanted posts tagged by, say, Autor, Sunshine, and Lohengrin I'd work it like so:


http://milliways-bar.dreamwidth.org/tag/autor,rae+%22sunshine%22+seddon,loengrin+(the+knight)?mode=all


There's also ?mode=or, which is any thread tagged with Autor OR Sunshine OR Lohengrin... which is a hell of a lot of threads.

Remember to use %22 for quotation marks, otherwise the html gets fussy. Have fun!

I was JUST about to dig through my chat logs to get the right HTML (my memory isn't what it used to be, WHO KNEW?), so this is very timely. Thank you thank you thank you! ♥

(Oh god, it is so weird typing "thank you" and hearts while logged in as Grace.)

Ah, neat. I had discovered the multiple tag thing on my own but didn't know about the ?mode=all flag (It should really be called ?mode=and but all is more intuitive I suppose)

I think the default is ?mode=or if you don't specify a mode.
