Suppose I wanted to view all the Hot Network Questions on a specific site (say, Stack Overflow). Is there a straightforward way to do so?

Also, is it possible to list all the HNQ across the whole network (since the sidebar only shows some of them)?


I guess your best bet is going to https://stackexchange.com/, which lists all the current Hot Network Questions, and spot the ones from the site you're interested in.

Even if it's not 100% straightforward, as the HNQ system was recently reworked so that at most 5 questions come from the same site, you shouldn't be loosing too much time browsing the 4 pages of question titles - it's "only" 100 questions. (Provided you don't get distracted by the other questions!)

  • Oh yeah, I read about the "five questions at most" rule but forgot about it. I guess your suggestion isn't a bad idea in this case. – 41686d6564 Jul 4 '19 at 18:16
  • You can view 50 at a time, so it's only two pages. – Catija ModStaff Jul 4 '19 at 19:08

Another option, especially useful if you need to parse the Hot Network Questions list with code, is to use the following undocumented API: https://stackexchange.com/hot-questions-for-mobile (as its name implies, it's used by the Stack Exchange mobile apps). It lists all 100 questions, as opposed to the stackexchange.com homepage which has two (or more) pages.
