There is a bug in the SO questions page. If I go to the questions page and click on a tag to filter for a subject and try to sort the questions by unanswered (e.g. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/c%23?sort=unanswered ), when I scroll all the way down and move to the next page by clicking on the page number the sorting goes back to the original one (by votes). This might be related to the estate of the page, when I change the sorting to unanswered and the page gets reloaded I can see in the UI the sort hyperlink as "Votes". I'm using the SO on my Android device


As mentioned in the comments (thanks guys!), the functionality I'm referring to is the "Filter", and not the sorting. The question still remains, if I apply a filter and try to move to the next page of questions, should the filter still be applied? (I believe it should)

    Unanswered isn't sorting criteria but an attribute filter. The sorting is chosen separately under the [More] menu. – πάντα ῥεῖ Oct 7 at 17:38

    On StackoverFlow click the "Filter" button then select "Sorted by Most frequent" and then "Apply filter." Then click the "Filter" button again to close the dialog. – Weather Vane Oct 7 at 19:47
  • Thanks guys, haven't released this summer is not the sorting. But the question remains, should the state of this filter be carried on when navigating between the pages or should it only be applied to the current page? – IPValverde Oct 8 at 18:10
