HOWEVER there are some caveats. It's impossible to accurately and always know where the gap is between words in an arbitrary user-created tag.
For #GLAMBlogClub I've set up a special check that changes 'glamblogclub' into 'glam blog club'. That won't work for something like, for example "ausglamblogposts".
Also, "ausglamblog" will collect "ausglamblog posts" ("[any characters]ausglamblog[any characters]", but not the other way around, because "posts" is part of the tag:
Currently you can:
1. do an OR search via a searchbox
2. do a tag browse by clicking on a tag on the homepage or search results
3. filter the last search (blank aka everything, or whatever the keyword or tag search was) by posts this month or last month by clicking a button
Do I need to make options 2 & 3 available in the searchbox or can I safely force some people to search then filter?
