Hi, I add tags most of the time to the discussions i start or respond to but i couldn't find out the way to search the discussions based on the tags? I can't see any search module which can search within the discussiona. Do we have any such link which i could not explore? If somebody can help me out. Thanks

At the top you'll see the search bar. If you select "discussions" it will search only within discussions using the keyword/s that you enter. It will then find all the discussions that have been tagged with those keywords.

Thanks buddy!!!! This helped me.. However i don't understand the algorithm used to search, but it does the basic search however to meet the basic requirement. I think it seacrh only on the basis of tags and can't search from the discussion text. But however, thanks a lot for your help....

Select "MyLot" and it will search all the posts, messages, and blogs on MyLot. I think that this is a full context search, in other words it will look for all text references to your search term. I should have explained this in my first response.

I guess there really isn't a way to search by tags...All you get from tags is that is gives a list of similar topics to the reader of the same interest on their screen.Thats it..Enjoy!!

I don't believe there is such a link. What happens with the tags is that it brings up similar discussions to your post or responses in the belief that you will be interested to answer that topic too. Hope this helps, others might tell me I'm wrong but that's my experience.
