I used to search for [dart-polymer] -[dart]. In the search box this is automatically changed to -[dart] [dart-polymer] example which is invalid AFAIR because a search must not start with -. The bar containing the all and any buttons shows on the left not [dart] [dart-polymer] (I get no search results but I'm sure there are related questions). When I switch to all example it shows [dart] [polymer-dart] (where the search results have the [dart] and [dart-polymer] tag) which is not at all what I wanted.

I added the URL created by these actions as example links, but the links don't show the same result as I get when I execute the explained steps.

  • Works fine for me. Like here which was the result from searching [science-based] -[biology] on Worldbuilding. A specific example with a link to the resultant search page might be useful. – a CVn Jul 27 '15 at 13:22
  • @MichaelKjörling Your example works for me too but here it stays on the old UI version. I added links and additional explanation. – zoechi Jul 27 '15 at 13:22

There are two issues here:

  1. search is redirecting you to the home page with a negative filter

  2. negative filters are not supported in the new navigation

Point 1 is a bug (and is reported elsewhere); point 2 is a new feature (which we are considering). I'm using this question as a placeholder for that.
