I was on Stack Overflow, browsing the questions to find one or two to answer, and I noticed there is a filter option of "Unanswered Questions"

It appears to filter questions by unanswered, but when I click on the next page it resets to the by votes filter, and the list is not filtered to unanswered questions.

I was using Google Chrome on Android, on an ZTE Axon M.

  • Are you using the mobile or the responsive (full site) site design? You can check in the footer of the page.

  • I cannot reproduce (Chrome on Android): for me, the filter stays at "Unanswered" when I go to the next page. Just in case: note that "Unanswered" actually means "with no upvoted or accepted answers", so some questions with (<=0 score) answers also show up there.

1 Answer 1


I was able to reproduce using the mobile site design.
Using Chrome 84.0.4147.89 on Android 10 using Huawei P10-Pro

Using the full site does not reproduce this issue. To switch to using full-site scroll to the bottom of the page and select "full site" in the footer.

  • Ok cool, so that is a work around... Good to know. Jul 24, 2020 at 7:37

    It indeed is a work around, and probably this won't get a fix, unless it is something trivial, as SE is in the process of making all pages fully responsive and then discontinuing the mobile site. So if it needs a lot of work to get back in working order they probably won't invest in it. I'll leave it up to you if you want to accept my answer or not, I don't mind either way.
