Is there way to sort questions on "unanswered/my tags" page by date? There is a "newest" tab, but it's shows all questions, not only with my tags.

    +1 -- I think this should be the default behavior... – rogerdpack Aug 2 '10 at 22:22
  • @rogerdpack, I agree. "My tags" is stuff I'm interested in, the highest-voted of those I've probably seen a dozen times already. If I'm looking in there, it's because I want to see if there is anything new. – vonbrand Feb 8 '13 at 23:00


If you want every tag that has Perl in it:

    I have about 30 tags so this method is not very convenient. – Kirill V. Lyadvinsky May 4 '10 at 16:31
  • Unless you change your "interested tags" all the time, it's trivial to just bookmark your gigantic URL. – Geoffrey Zheng Sep 11 '10 at 5:33
  • @GeoffreyZheng, that is definitely much more cumbersome than just going to the "My Tags" link. – vonbrand Feb 8 '13 at 22:56

You can manually craft the URL and then bookmark it.

`https://stackoverflow.com/unanswered/tagged?tagnames=tag1 tag2 tag3&tab=newest

  • I just wanted to try this but stuck on tag146. – Kirill V. Lyadvinsky Jul 31 '09 at 18:28
  • This seems to be an AND between tag1, tag2 and tag3. Is there a way to do this with an OR like the my tags tab? – drs9222 Jul 31 '09 at 18:36
  • On closer inspection it also appears that the tab=newest parameter does not actually cause it to sort by the newest. – drs9222 Jul 31 '09 at 18:48

    Yes, this is an 'AND' search. To make it an 'OR' search simply put 'or' betwee the tags: 'tag1 or tag2 or tag3'. I do believe the results are in chronological order. Perhaps the "modified date" is throwing you off? Open the questions and look at the date they were asked. – raven Jul 31 '09 at 22:47

    The default search order is which-ever search order you used last. To force a search order you use &sort=newest. – Brad Gilbert Sep 13 '10 at 14:43
  • @BradGilbert, that doesn't work. – vonbrand Feb 8 '13 at 22:55
  • @vonbrand it may have changed since I wrote that comment. (It's also possible it was wrong at the time) The thing is that any post or comment on Meta may become wrong at any moment. I wouldn't trust any that are more than a year old. – Brad Gilbert Feb 10 '13 at 4:56

Someone 'just' posted a question about standardizing all the page's tabs to feature tabs like newest on every page. Considering it covers a the same (and a little more) ground than this request, you might want to go upvote it.

Okay I've started playing with this through trial and error and I've made some progress:



This still has the AND problem but its a start.
