I want to filter questions based on some tag that I enter in the search bar in the Tag section of the mobile version of Stack Overflow. But when I write my tag name inside the search bar & hit enter, it does nothing. I tried entering the tag names inside square brackets as well but still nothing happens. At first I thought the problem would be with my browser so I switched to Google Chrome mobile version and guess what? It doesn't work there either. Why doesn't it work? is this some kind of known bug?

Browsers tested on: Uc & Chrome

My Phone: Lenovo p2

Os: Android 7

  • To be clear, do you mean the mobile browser or SE app or SO app? What phone/OS? – Catija Dec 11 '17 at 13:36
  • @Catija i edited my question take a look. Its mobile browser. – Ahtisham Dec 11 '17 at 13:44
  • I'm confused. You don't say which browser you're using initially and then you say it does work in Chrome but you say "too". – Catija Dec 11 '17 at 13:49
  • I edited it with Browser used & my phone & os. Btw i just checked it from the brother's phone as well and it doesn't work there too. He has motog g3 – Ahtisham Dec 11 '17 at 13:59
  • No repro for me. but what you mean "hit enter" You mean tapping the search icon in the phone's keyboard? – Shadow Wizard is Vaccinating Dec 11 '17 at 14:03
  • @Shadow Wizard Yes tapping search icon in phone's keyboard. – Ahtisham Dec 11 '17 at 14:07
  • I can repro here: Chrome on Android 8. However, searching for a [tag] in the question search works fine. – ale Dec 11 '17 at 14:08
  • Actually, I take that last bit back. Searching for a [tag] just returns all questions. Seems like something is borked. – ale Dec 11 '17 at 14:10
  • @ale I also tried it on my brother's phone who has Android 6. And it doesn't work there either. His phone is moto g3 – Ahtisham Dec 11 '17 at 14:13

  • i just checked it in iphone 6s as well using default safari browser and guess what it doesn't work there either. 😶 – Ahtisham Dec 11 '17 at 14:34

    You just did. Now we just have to wait, it might take few days/weeks/months before SE team will notice the bug report. – Shadow Wizard is Vaccinating Dec 11 '17 at 15:02
