Meta Question

Is it possible to browse questions in a particular category or tag on Fluther?

Asked by HasntBeen (2212points) December 13th, 2009

I’m trying to figure out how one would see lists of questions on specific topics… there doesn’t seem to be a topic filtering capability. Is it right in front of my eyes, or do people just not do that here?

This may answer your question, HasntBeen.

It’s a little odd to us n00bs since it’s more free-form than AB, but there are tags that work. That is what the Search bar above is for, and you can click on a tag to find related stuff.

I’m still learning, but learning quickly.

Thanks, now I got it.

There is also a “tag cloud” on the right hand side of the home page.

Additionally, if you fill out more topics in your profile (and I know you have many that you could add!), then Fluther will ‘queue’ questions for you that contain those topics.

Yeah, I saw that feature. But it sent me a bunch of questions I didn’t care about based on my tiny profile, so the thought of expanding it to obtain more question spam made me push the eject button. :)

Hi former AB users.
Happy to see you here. I am like you trying to learn this site.
If I go to the right side under search I can put in a topic ?
Thanks for the information .

@philosopher Yes, but it may not work quite how you think. Your best bet is to find a related question and hit the most relevant tag on it. For instance, this one only has one tag, Fluther. However, some questions have multiple tags, and if you click on the tag you will get all other questions with that tag.
Or you can just look on the Home page in the right-hand column and you will find a list of topics. If you don’t see what you want, hit see all topics

That is a little bit of a misnomer since it doesn’t show all of them, but it shows enough.
