Tags can now be filtered. For example, hasaccepted:no is syntax for do not
show questions with accepted answers.

Why doesn't hasanswer:no remove
all questions with answers?
Why doesn't onhold:no remove all
questions that are on hold?
Is the syntax incorrect?


1 Answer 1


The syntax is explained on the search page under "Advanced Search Tips".

To filter out questions with answers, use answers:0

To filter out closed questions, use closed:0 or closed:no.

The "on hold" status is mostly a euphemism for "closed" and the search engine does not care about the distinction.

  • $\begingroup$ If I use closed:0 and a question of mine gets closed, how would I know that? $\endgroup$ Sep 1, 2018 at 2:57
  • $\begingroup$ How do I remove both answered questions and has accepted answer simultaneously? Can I also removed closed questions in addition? $\endgroup$ Sep 1, 2018 at 3:09

    $\begingroup$ All search parameters can be used in combination. But if a question has no answers, it seems safe to conclude it has no accepted answer. $\endgroup$
