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:


  • Sweet! Thanks I'd vote this up if I could. – drs9222 Aug 1 '09 at 0:08

    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.

Inconsistent buttons on different pages


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.
