The Gateway to Computer Science Excellence

While searching for questions on GO website, I found that the website is lacking a couple of important and useful functionalities.

  • Search capability based on multiple tags. Currently, the website supports search based on a single tag only.
  • Keyword and timestamp-based filtering and sorting of search results.

I don’t know how is the website currently managed. But, if the moderators need some help in the implementation of these functionalities, I can volunteer, after the GATE 2019 examination, of course.

Who told only one tag is supported?

@Arjun After this comment, I searched with multiple tags, and it worked. My understanding was wrong. I think since there are 3 different search boxes, I got confused. In the tag search box, suggestions do come up while typing the tag, and I thought, since there is no explicit way to separate different tags, it wasn't possible.

Yes, the 3 ones provide slightly different ones. Below are some tips
