I have both java and android listed in my favourite tags as I like answering questions for both.

However sometimes I just want to see the newest Java questions, which I would usually do by clicking the tag in my favourites list. Unfortunately all the questions that are tagged as Android and Java obscure the pure Java ones I feel like answering.

Is there any way to have a favourite tag work in the same way as the search feature so I could provide [java] -[android] to just show the Java questions easily?

    You could just seach [java] -[android]. It's not a simple as a one-click, but I wouldn't call it complicated. – yoozer8 Mar 8 '12 at 17:09
  • @Jim That's what I'm currently doing. – Jivings Mar 8 '12 at 17:25

You cannot do it with the favorite tags, but if you look at the bottom of a search page, such as [java] -[android], you will notice there is a feed icon. You can use that to find all the newest questions tagged , but not .


  • Great solution thanks :) – Jivings Mar 8 '12 at 17:25
