Consider this question from the point-of-view of a visitor to a WordPress blog, and not as a WordPress blog admin who can edit those numerous PHP files.

How can I see a list of all the posts under a category and a tag? Not clear? Let me explain with an example:

I have two categories -- Social Media (social) and Web (web), and I have a tag Tips and Tricks (tips-and-tricks).

Consider that I use the tag frequently with posts under both categories. The question is, how can a visitor to my blog, check posts tagged "tips-and-tricks" and under "social" category?

I am looking for a solution similar to this: http://example.com/feed/?cat=11,12 (which we use to combine rss feeds of multiple categories). Thanks.

Found it! Similar to how you'd do it with RSS feeds, you can do it like this:


Where 6 is the category ID of Social Media (social) category as per the example.

Did you know that you can and may accept your own answer as correct? It is actually encouraged to do so - further readers will not attempt to answer your question and ppl with a similar problem are more likely to look closely and find help. – Johannes Pille Apr 18 '12 at 9:53
@JohannesPille Yes, I do know that. But I can only do so after 2 days. :) That's how StackExchange sites' flood control works, I guess. – its_me Apr 18 '12 at 10:51
