Just a quick questions:

  1. Why can we not search just for questions or just for answers?
  2. Will this be a future option?

I think it may be useful for people, especially when they are looking for specific searches.

1 Answer 1


When searching, add the term is:question or is:answer (or the shorthand is:q or is:a) to search only for one of the other.

You can read about other useful search operators on the appropriate Help page.
