    Following the discussion this thread

    https://xenforo.com/community/threads/search-for-keyword-tags.87493/

    I'd like to propose that a separate link to the Tag List page

    https://xenforo.com/community/media/tags

    is added to the media gallery.

    XFMG comes with a tags block that can be displayed in the media sidebar. This allows members to see popular tags and also to search tags. The title of the block links to the Tag List page. If the block is disabled via the ACP, then users have no way of knowing that the Tag List page exists.

    I'd suggest that a direct link to the Tag List page would solve this situation. The link could be placed in the Media navigation block and/or the Media sub-menu.

    This has actually reminded me of a change I wanted to make which is sort of similar.

    I think the approach we're going for is the block for tags is always there, with the link to the tags page and the tags search box, and only the tag cloud part of that bock will be hidden. I'll look at that for the next release.

    would it be possible to integrate the "tag search" into the "default search box" ?

    I understand why you are suggesting this. The problem I see with doing this is that the default search box is used across the whole of XenForo. Whilst you would want it to work within the Gallery itself, you wouldn't want it available elsewhere as it wouldn't be relevant. Not only this, the tag search is part of an official add-on, it's not part of the core software. This is why I made the suggestion that I did because it's an easy solution to implement.

    In the next release:

    If the Tag Cloud is disabled, this box is available in its place.
