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.

At StackOverflow I use some Interesting Tags. One of those is c++. But questions tagged c++ do not show up highlighted. Only those with another interesting tag do.
What's up?

This one was interesting - it will be fixed in the next deployment. Let's just say that I need to go back and read Joels article: http://www.joelonsoftware.com/articles/Unicode.html

It's deployed to meta right now - we only deploy stack overflow in the evenings unless it's really urgent. – Geoff Dalgas Aug 12 '10 at 21:31
It's happening to me now...c#, asp.net, asp.net-mvc aren't highlit. – CGK Dec 7 '10 at 13:19
now they're back! Yay! – CGK Dec 7 '10 at 16:25

Same for me and also for:

  • [c++0x], [visual-c++], [objective-c++], [g++], ...
  • [c#], ...
  • [java1.4], ...

This not only occurs for highlighting, but also for ignoring.

Those worked before, so apparently there is a bug regarding #, +, . with the client-side JavaScript, as those divs don't get the correct class (e.g. question-summary tagged-interesting).
(with my limited web-dev-fu it looks like the client-side function getTagsSelector(d) might be the culprit)

@Jeff, can you also fix the weird bug that happens the day after March 31th every year that seem to affect gravitars? Thanks. (Yes I know) – Jesse Slicer Aug 12 '10 at 14:27

This is happening again this morning.

Another JS minification task was added to the build without the proper encoding. This is now fixed. – Geoff Dalgas Dec 7 '10 at 16:14
Awesomesauce. Thanks! – Jesse Slicer Dec 7 '10 at 16:29

I believe we are currently having a related bug on RPG.

And it's happening once again across all SE sites.

Already fixed? Works for me. – Michel de Ruiter Nov 1 '11 at 8:09
Nope, I have C# as a tag as well as .NET and no C# nor .NET questions are being highlighted. Wait, nevermind. Had to un-script-block netdna-cdn.com for it to work. Is this recent? – Jesse Slicer Nov 1 '11 at 12:23
I see some missing highlights as well: stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/c%23 – Michel de Ruiter Nov 1 '11 at 16:44
Apparently it is rececnt: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/110690/… – Jesse Slicer Nov 1 '11 at 18:09
