What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I have a bookmark to http://stackoverflow.com/unanswered/tagged/c%2b%2b?tab=newest, which has always shown me the newest unanswered questions for C++ (%2b being "+", URL-encoded).

This URL now shows me C questions rather than C++ questions (and the search box shows [c]).

If I then click on the C++ button I get taken to http://stackoverflow.com/unanswered/tagged/c%20c%2b%2b, which still shows only C questions, and now the search box shows [c] [c].

tagged/c%2b%2b still works elsewhere on the site, but under unanswered it doesn't.

If you click it a third time you get [c] [c] [c]. Maybe it's incrementing the number of cs when you click c++. – Asad Saeeduddin Dec 2 '12 at 10:56
@juergen I said in the question that it works elsewhere. That doesn't alter the fact that it doesn't work under unanswered/tagged. What do you mean unanswered works too? – Alan Stokes Dec 2 '12 at 11:04
You're right. Clicking on unanswered and then C++ does not work. I did it the other way around. – juergen d Dec 2 '12 at 11:09
I concur with this, and note it is still lunked in the head as of todays date. – WhozCraig Dec 18 '12 at 0:06
Now is 21 Dec 2012 and this bug is still exists. Do StackOverflow's authors look at 'meta' part of their site ? – borisbn Dec 21 '12 at 14:39
This is still broken. But there is a workaround: http://stackoverflow.com/unanswered/tagged/cpp?tab=newest - because cpp is a synonym for the c++ tag. Doesn't necessarily help with all the other tags with "+" in them though. – Alan Stokes Jan 5 '13 at 15:42
@Asad ha it's funny because c++ in C increments the variable c! /sarcasm – Cole Johnson May 5 '13 at 16:57
