This question is very basic so please bear with me. I cannot figure out how to sort or filter answers by tags when I view my history of posts and replies in my math.se profile. It has got to the point where sometimes it takes me quite some time to locate an answer that I know is there but I don't remember when I posted it. Filtering by tags would really be handy here.

Thanks and happy computing.

Look for the heading Tags, and click the greyed number next to the tag of interest. By doing that I was taken to this page. $\endgroup$ Dec 7, 2013 at 7:53

Sorting by tags would not be very practical, because questions usually have multiple tags. If some sort of dictionary order is imposed, then you'd have to know whether the question had other tags than come earlier in the dictionary than the tag you are thinking about.

Filtering by tags is already available, via the search box. Type [tag-name] user:me to get the list of all your posts in the tag "tag-name". You can also combine two or more tags in the search:

  • [tag1] [tag2] user:me to find your posts with tag1 and tag2.
  • [tag1] or [tag2] user:me to find your posts with tag1 or tag2.

Adding is:answer limits the results to only answers.
