What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 137 Stack Exchange communities.

If we search something through stackoverflow.com we pass keywords into query string like this: /search?q=garden and gets appropriate results.

Also we can find tagged questions with URL like this: /questions/tagged/iis

But I can't find tagged questions with specified keywords! Something like this: /questions/tagged/iis/search?q=garden

In REST we trust :)

You specify tags in the search query, e.g. [iis].


Search tips provide more information (link is on the right side of search results).

That sounded strange IMO, but is correct in the site's search box and in stackoverflow.com/search you can filter by tag by putting the name of the tage between square brackets like [php] –  Trufa Feb 1 '11 at 19:12
@Trufa It will also auto-taggify common tags like php, so searching for "garden php" is the same as searching for "garden [php]". (iis isn't common enough for that though) –  Michael Mrozek Feb 1 '11 at 19:29
nice did not know that! –  Trufa Feb 1 '11 at 19:50
