I have some questions with answers, but none of the answers are acceptable (just wrong).

I'm sure there are a lot more people with the same problem.

Can you add a button to filter questions with answers but no accepted answer?

This way, people will see those questions and maybe try to offer a new perspective.

See https://stackoverflow.com/search. You want hasaccepted:0 in your search terms.

For example, here are all the SO questions with that have no accepted answer:
https://stackoverflow.com/search?q=%5Bsql%5D+hasaccepted%3A0

  • That is sorted by date (first results from 2008, I doubt that they will ever accept), Is there a way to reverse the sort ? – Yochai Timmer Apr 8 '11 at 8:54

    Never mind, if you use hasaccepted:0 in the "newest" tab it will do that. – Yochai Timmer Apr 8 '11 at 8:56

https://stackoverflow.com/unanswered dos exactly that.

  • But it does not allow the user to (for example) find all the ruby tagged questions that have no accepted answer. – Phrogz Apr 7 '11 at 20:11
  • Yes it does. You can click on the tags on the right part of the screen to filter, e.g.: stackoverflow.com/unanswered/tagged/ruby – Aleadam Apr 7 '11 at 20:13
  • @Aleadam I stand corrected! It still doesn't give you the power search options the way that hasaccepted:0 does, but it should get 90% of the people what they need. – Phrogz Apr 7 '11 at 20:16
  • @Phrogz we both learned something. I did not know about the options for /search – Aleadam Apr 7 '11 at 20:31
  • It shows questions with 0 answers... not questions with unaccepted answers – Yochai Timmer Apr 7 '11 at 21:00
  • @Yochai, no it does not. See proof above – Aleadam Apr 7 '11 at 21:14
  • Ok, missed the smaller tabs. I was on "no answers" by default – Yochai Timmer Apr 7 '11 at 22:33
  • That's still "no upvoted answers" – Yochai Timmer Apr 8 '11 at 8:52
  • Isn't this only useful, if the list of tags happens to include the one you want? If it doesn't you have to enter a manual search, which seems a bit odd, to me. – nicodemus13 Apr 7 '12 at 13:25
