For example, I'd like to see every question that has been tagged with . Searching for [baking] will just return the description of the tag.

I've tried [baking] * and even [baking] followed by a common word such as a or the, but no luck.

[baking] is the correct syntax.

Yes, it returns the tag wiki (what you call "the description"). Below it you will see the questions for this tag, in a sorting order defined above the tag wiki (you can switch between the order criteria listed by just clicking one of them). If you select a tag with lots of questions, like , you will have a really long list to page through, of course.

  • I think I must have a browser quirk (Chrome), because I don't get a list of questions and neither Info or Newest were highlighted. I tried it on IE and the behavior was as you described above. I went back to Chrome, clicked on Newest (I didn't try that before because the tooltip for newest says it gives the most recent questions, not all questions), the list came and Newest is now is automatically selected when I search for a tag. Newest appears to return all questions so that is fine. The strange thing before, if I searched for [baking] oven, I did get a list of questions.

  • Must be more than just the browser involved, I get the normal results with Chrome (18.0.1025.162)
