bbPress search to include topic tags

    I need some help. I am running a bbPress site and making a feature out of the bbPress search. I’ve noticed that it works great for text strings found in the title and body copy. However, it does not return topics that have the search query as topic tags.

    I know that an attempt has been made at a very advanced search plugin, I don’t want this. I simply need the basic text search to include topic tags. Is there a simple PHP function that can do this?

    Perhaps perform the normal search and then topic tag search and merge the results, removing duplicates?

    I am aware that this has been discussed before but this specific solution has not been touched upon.
