Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Add another useful example-query to the search-option page:

an explanation on how to combine searches for specific tags (OR'ing tags).

The whole thing is discussed here on MSO,

Search [tag1] OR [tag2]

but the search-options page does not explain how to do this, but it should. (Instead it explains much more complex and weirder queries)

Add one more line here:

to specific tags

[tag] apples oranges
[tag] [another-tag] apples oranges

> [tag] [OR] [another-tag] apples oranges

...assuming the line is correct.. maybe you cannot add any other search terms when you have used the [OR] operator with [tags]

The thing is, that [tag1] [or] [tag2] syntax isn't supposed to work to begin with. But I'm not sure how the in-progress changes to search impact the support for that functionality. – Tim Stone Jan 4 '13 at 14:02
    
Recently I had to issue more complex tag-searches. I just encounted a situation where I have to combine [Screen-scraping] [OR] [web-scraping]. What I really want to do is ([Screen-scraping] [OR] [web-scraping]) AND [perl], and to this I'd like to add even more search terms. – knb Jan 4 '13 at 14:58
