In the new navigation UI, every entry in a questions list seems to be either 'asked' or 'modified'. This seemed odd to me so I opened a new SO session in a private window that wasn't going to read my new navigation UI cookie option and sure enough, there are 'asked', modified' and 'answered' categories at the least (may be more that I am unfamiliar with).

Edit: My original narrative may have been unclear. This is what I am referring to in the old UI.

        New NAV UI lacks Answered

If I respond to a question, I have posted a potential answer (such as it may be). I have not 'modified' the question. In the new Nav UI, the 'Answered' designation appears to have been supplanted by 'Modified' in every case even when no edit to the question exists.

  • As for the Show Excerpts and Hide Excerpts be a single toggle button goes, it has been asked here and here – HackerKarma Jul 25 '15 at 23:21
  • under new navigation we have "newest" (for asked) and "recently active" (for "modified"). Just to let you know that "recently active" is replacement for old "active" tab. – HackerKarma Jul 25 '15 at 23:36

    +1 for the "answered" which should be there. It's definitely missing. I can see it on Meta.SE "recently active" tab. See this: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/… – HackerKarma Jul 25 '15 at 23:40

Turns out, the view used for displaying the expanded list (including excerpts) was re-using the view that was previously only ever shown on the /questions/tagged/{tag}?sort=active tab, which never implemented the asked/answered status display (kudos to @HackerKarma), as it was never visible on the home page.

Both of those issues will be fixed in the next build.

  • m0sa OP is talking about new-nav on StackOverflow.com See: stackoverflow.com/questions/… where everything is "modified" whereas on Meta.SE meta.stackexchange.com/questions/… it has "modified", "asked", "answered" – HackerKarma Aug 3 '15 at 13:00

    ah, was only looking at SE... that is indeed weird, looking harder :) – m0sa Aug 3 '15 at 13:04
  • No problem... don't just look hard but work hard :) Please update answer with your findings... You got a good "bug" to squash here... Have fun! – HackerKarma Aug 3 '15 at 13:10
