Hi, I wonder if any Confluence mavens out there might have any experience with creating a Confluence 6.1 search box function (macro) that searches for the user's entered search term amongst Confluence pages that have already been filtered to have BOTH of two prerequisite labels that can be preconfigured into the macro's search parameters by the Confluence administrator (me).

The Confluence LIVESEARCH macro has a "Restrict to Label(s)" field that accepts multiple label names comma-separated, but will only perform an OR search with such multiple-label entries. I need an AND search that will only display search hits from pages that have ALL the labels I list.

I know I can run an AND search manually by entering the two labels in separate filter boxes on the manual search, but I need a search macro of some sort that will automatically impose this 2-label AND requirement in addition to the users search-box entry.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Kevin Ryan
