I want to search for:

  • unanswered questions
  • only in my tags
  • sorted by newest first

I'd have guessed this was very common—if not the default. However I can't figure it out. Closest I can find on meta is this, which doesn't have a definitive answer.

The intags:mine operator returns only posts that appear in tags you have marked as favorite.

Applying this to @LanceRoberts answer:


But neither this, nor his suggested method, support sorting by date asked ☹

Edit: Martin Smith provided this search, which will sort chronologically:


Thanks all!

Edit: Another improvement: skip closed (and on hold) posts
