That would ROCK!

I can imagine it quite easily... think "combinatorial explosion". With the present system, when you have more than one axis, like say "product" and "country", each with two or more values, say pot/pan and UK/US, you have a problem with unwanted intersections. If you say to include pot and US, and exclude pan and UK, you'll be surprised to see that pan/US and pot/UK are both present. This is because when categories overlap and one is in and one is out, the combination is in. To prevent that, in the situation above, you need tags for pot (not US/UK), pan (not US/UK), US (not pot/pan), UK (not pot/pan), pot-US, pot-UK, pan-US, and pan-UK. That's the simplest case, and it needs eight tags. Add another axis, like user/admin, and see what happens... Hint: it's *more* than 16. ;-) >How in heck to you keep track of 80 tags, Carla? That's the problem, all right. Managing it all. I've been sorely tempted to write a free plugin to do that, where you could have boolean logic that included more than "OR". Perhaps this is a feature in the next FM. I don't know, myself, but I'd love to see it. -- Jeremy H.
