The title already says it all:

  • In the "Tags" area, "sample-code" is listed as if it had 5 related questions.
  • Looking for those questions, none are found.

What's the cause for that?

(This tag would be one of the more useful, methinks.)

EDIT: This seems to apply to most other tags, too, as a huge "mis-tag" - tested with FireFox 3.6.12 and IE 8.

Is the tag-question relationship broken?

Just for fun, I'm gonna use this particular tag here, too:)

...and now it has 6 related questions, and none is found:)

Not sure what you mean. If I go to the tags list, sample-code is listed as having 6 questions (not 5 because you added this one), and if I click on sample-code, I see 6 questions all of which are tagged with sample-code.

Volker, using FireFox 3.6.12 and clicking on Tags->sample-code load the list with the 6 messages containing that tag. See Maybe it's a security configuration issue with your browsers?

@Graeme, @Reimer: Well, I can confirm my described behaviour from different boxes in our corporate network. Don't know whether any security policy has checked - i.e. as any user will tell "I haven't changed nothing at all". - But until today (or yesterday?), clicking on these tags has always worked well. - I'm gonna get a dead chicken or reboot the boxes:)

Hmm, still the wrong behaviour after rebooting - gonna ask Breck for a dead chicken:(

Problem solved:

Obviously, when displaying "Tagged Questions", I had incidentally chosen the "featured" tab. So, whenever I clicked on a question tag, the view just showed the "featured" ones - and that are almost none currently.

In the normal "Questions" display, however, all questions were displayed as usual.

As soon as I chose one of the "hot"/"active"/"newest"/"votes" tabs in the "Tagged Questions" view, the according questions were shown again.

Lesson learnt...

I'm glad you found the answer, because I wasn't able to find a dead chicken. It's the day after Thanksgiving where I am, lots of dead turkeys, no chickens :)

BTW, when SQLA 2.0 becomes available, we can probably expect a whole DIFFERENT set of idiosyncracies because it's a different code base.

(26 Nov '10, 12:52) Breck Carter

Strange, when I log out, all tags work as expected, but when I'm logged in (as usual), they don't - now testing from a different (private) network. So it seems to be bound to my SQLA profile (which I haven't changed AFAIK) and not tied to any network/security options.

Any ideas how to proceed? This is definetely not a showstopper but somewhat uncomfortable...
