When in the "Unanswered" tab, and with a "favourite tag" selected, all questions are highlighted to signify they include my favourite tag.

Surely this is incorrect behaviour, as when I have a favourite tag selected then all questions will include my favourite tag?

Within the "Unanswered" tab, this happens in all sub tabs:
my tags; newest; votes; no answers;

I would have thought this area should behave just like any of the other tabs:

  • Without a favourite tag selected, questions with my favourite tag(s) will be highlighted
  • With a favourite tag selected there won't be any highlighting


The same happens when multiple favourite tags are selected.

This only happens in the main "Unanswered" tab (e.g., does not happen in "Questions" tab with sub-tab "Unanswered" selected).

I have reproduced/tested on 3 sites, all have the same highlighting logic (Unanswered tab + fave tag = all highlighted):

To reproduce in the above links you'll need favourite tags: PHP; PHP; Feature-Request; (respectively)

FWIW (don't think it'll matter) am using:
Iceweasel 31.2.0
Debian jessie/sid

Fixed in build 2014.11.18.2756 on meta and 2014.11.18.2021 on sites.

  • Nice! Highlighting works as with other site tabs. Although, I can only select one favourite tag at a time. I'm sure I could select multiple favourite tags before. I can still select more than one non-favourite tag at a time - or one fave and multiple non-fave. (not that I'm so bothered, just letting you know in case it's a side effect of any changes)

  • @James the same favorite tag click behavior is there on the home and question pages, which weren't altered by this changeset. You can't select more than one at a time from the favorite tags section. You can however select additional tags from the related tags section once you've clicked a favorite tag. So that's where the confusion possibly originates. If you're really annoyed with it, a feature-request might be appropriate.

  • Ah ok. I thought I'd selected multiple favourite tags when testing this, to be honest. No worries, cheers.
