If I click a tag I follow from the main page, I get no results:

This isn't happening on other SE sites. What's up?

It says it right there :-)

You are on the Featured tab. There are no questions with an active bounty at the moment. Perhaps you'd like to select a different tab?

You are probably looking at https://travel.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/venice/?sort=featured, that's why you don't see anything. Remove the last bit and everything works as advertised.

Don't sweat it, I have been stumped by this once or twice before as well. :-)

  • but I wasn't on the featured tab on purpose. I just clicked a tag link elsewhere. I tried this on lots of tag links and they all lead there. On other sites that's not what happens Mar 15, 2013 at 20:01

    @KateGregory: From a bit of playing around, it seems to remember the last tab you were at when looking at tags. So if the previous tag you looked at was "featured", then when you look at another one, it would still be on the "featured" tag. You can always switch to another tab, but I agree it's somewhat unexpected. . Mar 15, 2013 at 20:04

    FWIW it works exactly like on other SE sites (just tested on Android-SE). Mar 15, 2013 at 20:07
  • That was it! Very counterintuitive! Thanks! Mar 15, 2013 at 20:09

    @KateGregory this bites even me; we really need to take another look at its usability. Mar 19, 2013 at 6:10
