When searching stackoverflow for posts with the tag c# you get all the posts, but when searching with the tag f# you get nothing.

If you search fsharp you'll get lots of posts with an f# tag.

I'm guessing there is an exception for the c# tag but it has not yet been added for f# ?

Works for me:


If you want to search for a tag, encase it in square-brackets, like this:


Also, keyword searches for the top 20 tags are converted to tag searches automatically, so searching with the keyword c# is the same as searching for [c#].

Ah... ok now I see. It's kinda confusing the search is influenced by the selected tab even though the search box is "above" the tabs. But now I know, thank you. –  TimothyP Dec 16 '09 at 0:35
