I was just looking for a duplicate using the top search bar, so I typed global-inbox. I got this page:

first search page

Here I can sort for votes, which I was looking for. Then I noticed I missed the tag brackets in the search, so I typed [global-inbox] and hit search again:

second search page

The second search brought me to another search page as the first one... Now, since I am on the 'new questions' page, I can't sort on votes any more. Also, the UI is totally different, and I think there is still some merging left to do.

Can you:

  • Make the second hit on search go to the same page, as the page before?
  • Make us sort on votes in the 'new questions' page?

I noticed just now that searching for a tag in the top bar also brings me to the second search page. So if this is by-design, can anyone elaborate on the why?

    That's not search, it's a tag page (example in the old navigation, where it clearly says "Tagged Questions") - the reason I opted out of the new navigation alpha testing is because it made search by tag a nightmare. Guess I'll have to get used to it once it's deployed, but personally hope it will never happen. Anyway - no bug here, that's just how the new navigation work. Jun 3 '15 at 8:49
  • @ShadowWizard I consider that a functional bug ;) Jun 3 '15 at 9:15

This was fixed a while back with our top bar and questions listings redesigns. Searching for [tag-name] brings you to the tag page for that tag, where you now have the option to sort by votes (among other things).
