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'm not replicating this on IE8. How exactly are these hidden? Are you receiving no results at all? – Grace Note May 19 '10 at 14:16
No repro in either FF 3.6 or IE7. Can you post a screenshot? – Jon Seigel May 19 '10 at 14:22
Do you have javascript in your ignored tags? – devinb May 19 '10 at 14:29
Can you post a screen shot? – Bill the Lizard May 19 '10 at 15:08

Yes, If you have java* in the ignored tag and choose Hide Ignored Tags in pref, you won't see javascript posts too.

  • Turn off Hide Ignored Tags checkbox
  • or put java, java-* in ignored tag

Ack. I had 'java*' as an ignored tag.

Then you will surely not see javascript too, * is wildcard and all the tag startswith java will get ignored. – YOU May 19 '10 at 15:53
