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