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

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
