Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I was just checking out posts in the tag on the SO /review page. After I got through a bunch, I decided to switch over to the tag. I didn't see in the Tag Summary section, so I clicked on it in the Favorite Tags section. This is what happened:

both tags in URL, page only reports first one

Both tags are present in the URL, but only the first one — the old one — actually gets used for filtering. I remember reading a while ago that the /review page's filter is limited to one tag by design, and I'm fine with that.

There are two potential issues here. First, clicking on a tag in the Favorites section usually takes you to that tag's questions page, not a /review page, so I may have been wrong to try to use it for review purposes in the first place.

If this is by design, then the problem is that the newly clicked tag doesn't replace the previously active tag. When a user clicks a new filter tag, it should replace the existing one in the URL instead of being (uselessly) appended. This behavior does work correctly for tags in the Tag Summary list.

If this is not by design, then then problem is that the link isn't going to the right type of page at all.
