I'm following Atwood's post here and he gives an example on how to search questions with the tag , but not the wildcard tag [tag:status-*].

How would I use this to search for, as an example, all questions with "star" in the tag, but not questions with "wars" in a tag, so the end result would have all of , all of , but no questions?

  • You can search [star-*] or [star-trek] [stargate] -[star-wars]. Also, I'm dupe-closing this since I've now posted a definitive proposed-FAQ question about the search facility.
