BlinkList adds critical (still hidden) features

One of the most requested features for BlinkList has been the ability to add the ability to search for multiple tags. So, we have just added the following search features:

1) AND - ability to drill down and search for multiple tags by using the (+) plus sign between two tags:

Example 1: tag 1+tag 2
Example 2: Ajax+Php
Example 3: news+tech blog

As you can see from example 3, the AND feature works for any tag, including tags that have multiple keywords. The AND feature is critical to narrow down search results and find exactly what you need and want.

2) OR - the ability to expand a search by using the (|) sign between two tags:

Example 1: tag 1|tag 2
Example 2: blog|blogging
Example 3: tech blog|tech blogs

The OR feature is great especially when there is some tag fragmentation. For example, some users use the tag 'tech blog' and others use the tag 'tech blogs' to describe something similar.

Now you can simply earch for both to make the finding experience faster and more efficient.

Lastly, we have also rolled this feature out on both the public and the personal user pages. This is one of the most requested features that we received. We still need to show it on the UI (i.e. add the advanced search feature link so users can find this on the site).

However, you can already take advantage of these features now so if you have read this blog, you can get started right away! :-)

Lets us know what you think and how we can keep making BlinkList better and better.

Hm, what am I doing wrong? I enter "firefox+extension" into the search field and no results can be found. But I have lots of links tagged with both of those tags.
