Omit tags?

Is there a way to omit specific tags on forum searching and browsing? There doesn’t seem to be, but it would be helpful. Omitting iPad tags, for example. Just wondering.

Did you happen to see this recent thread? Your idea could be added to the list, @dan_kreider .

I believe you can use the syntax -tags:tag-name, i.e. a minus sign, followed by tags:, followed by the tag name, to exclude tags from search.

See here:

(Scroll down to the end of the thread, because when the thread was first opened, it wasn’t possible. However, it has since been implemented in Discourse.)

I tried various ways of adding more than one tag to exclude but had no success. And unless I missed it, the helpful Discourse link Daniel shared doesn’t address that possibility. Anyone know if it can be done?

I’ve not tried it, but I think the idea is that you can do -tag:first-tag -tag:second-tag.
