Go to https://judaism.stackexchange.com/tags and, in the "Type to find tags" search box, type in a string. The page will auto-update with tags that match that string. However, it seems based on a few tries that the string will match only:

  • a real, usable tag (as opposed to a synonym), no matter where in the tag's name it matches, and
  • a synonym, where it matches the start of the synonym.

(Things I've tried: searching maz, birk, zik, min, and quo.)

If this is by design, I request it be changed, and the search match even the middle of synonym names. But I suspect it's a bug.

    This is currently by design, but we'll see about modifying the SQL that powers this search to include partial matches in the middle of the tag for synonyms.

  • We still think this is a good idea, but unfortunately it's not going to happen any time soon.
