How to search multiple terms of custom taxonomy?


I have some custom post types and taxonomies in my theme. To include terms of these taxonomies in search results, I’m using this script:

function atom_search_where($where){
    global $wpdb;
    if (is_search())
      $where .= "OR ( LIKE '%".get_search_query()."%' AND {$wpdb->posts}.post_status = 'publish')";
    return $where;
  function atom_search_join($join){
    global $wpdb;
    if (is_search())
      $join .= "LEFT JOIN {$wpdb->term_relationships} tr ON {$wpdb->posts}.ID = tr.object_id INNER JOIN {$wpdb->term_taxonomy} tt ON tt.term_taxonomy_id=tr.term_taxonomy_id INNER JOIN {$wpdb->terms} t ON t.term_id = tt.term_id";
    return $join;
  function atom_search_groupby($groupby){
    global $wpdb;
    // we need to group on post ID
    $groupby_id = "{$wpdb->posts}.ID";
    if(!is_search() || strpos($groupby, $groupby_id) !== false) return $groupby;
    // groupby was empty, use ours
    if(!strlen(trim($groupby))) return $groupby_id;
    // wasn't empty, append ours
    return $groupby.", ".$groupby_id;
  add_filter('posts_join', 'atom_search_join');
  add_filter('posts_groupby', 'atom_search_groupby');

and this works great, but I would like to make search multiple terms at once. How can I achieve this in the simplest way? 🙂
