Hi,

I have created a simple checkbox with several alternatives so that the user can attach pre-defined tags to each added article (see attached pic). However, I have a problem when then using these tags in the search field...

Essentially I want the search to only generate a list with the tags selected. I have however tried every option i could think of, e.g. "any words" give to many responses and "any words exact" give to few... and there is nothing I can use to relate to the number for each tag. 

Would anyone have any suggestions?

Your help would be greatly appreciated!

I found the solution... 

For anyone with the same problem, make sure you assign unique codes to each tag. In my case, having initially just used numbers (e.g. 1 to 25), when for instance 5 was picked it selected 5, 15 and 25 as well. Making the list much longer than it should be! 

I would have thought that the "any words exact" would have solved this issue, but for some reason it doesnt return all the articles that have been marked. 

So, by assigning a unique code to each tag allowed me to use "any words" and it then generated the correct list of articles.
