How to search for tags? Feeling clueless

I made a tag:

les paul

Typing in the search, les paul, does not give the track as a hit

So I tried the little search on top of the message board

Same result.

What went wrong?

Hmmmm on the other hand, in the search it says 387 tracks, but when I click it I get only three

@Dick , maybe you have an answer for that?

That was my experience also, only 3, so I was confused, then again I wish I could search on only tags;), but I will be happy if it works,
Can I combine/refine the search with my profile so I only search my own tracks?
Thanks for the Reply Teegee :)

phew, that was a bit more job than I had hoped it would be, but, if you have another try, I hope you'll be more satisfied with the "les paul" results from now on.

The darn dropdown above the shoutbox still finds a different count of tracks than the search engine, I still need to work out why that is so (might be it does count private tracks, too, or something of that sort).

I don't see myself implementing text search on your profile anytime soon, but you can try to see what comes up if you search for "les paul frenzie" now.

One ingredient of making this work was to disable the "order results by..." switch, as text match orders results by itself, trying to resemble the quality of the match... suggested search will probably return any track including the word "paul" only, too (hence the many results), but at least those only slightly matching tracks are ordered to the end of the list now.
Text search IS rocketscience, I'll tell ya.
