I've searched for this specific answer with no luck. I want to be able to filter unanswered questions with [tag1] AND [tag2], but it doesn't seem to work for unanswered.

When I use a link like this: https://stackoverflow.com/unanswered/tagged/sql+oracle

Even though it has a "+", it still treats it as an OR. I want unanswered questions containing both tags. Is this possible? Unclear if this is a possible bug/feature/ or user error.

  • Have you tried: "isanswered:false [tag1] [tag2]"?

  • @John - that looked good at first, but when I scrolled down a page or two, I'm still seeing some answered ones. I typed this into the search bar: [sql] [oracle] isanswered:false as well as, isanswered:false [sql] [oracle] in case order counts

  • You are right in the sense that "isanswered:false" will show answers with a score<=0. Perhaps try "answers:0" along with the desired tags. Like this: "answers:0 [tag1] [tag2]".

  • "unanswered" has an odd definition... it means questions with no upvoted or accepted answers, not zero answers.

  • answers:0 is close enough, thanks John! isanswered:false seems to allow accepted answers, if they aren't upvoted, which is unexpected. I say "close enough" because I would prefer questions with unaccepted answers too, since that's how "stackoverflow.com/unanswered" normally works.

  • @Pandya that doesn't include oracle AND sql tags for some reason.

Hmm... It is not working as expected. Btw, following are workarounds to get expected result:

  1. Forcing and


  2. Using /questions instead


Using Advance Search: isanswered:0 [sql] [oracle] for no positively scored answers & answers:0 [sql] [oracle] for no answer at all.

  • It doesn't look like isanswered:0 is working correctly, but the other options work well.
