Stack Apps is a question and answer site for apps, scripts, and development with the Stack Exchange API. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I was looking for a way to grab the list of "featured" questions via the API, and I stumbled across several answers that all point to the same solution:

Shouldn't there be a separate call for featured questions?

Featured questions API

The solution seems to be "call the questions endpoint, with sort=featured"

This doesn't appear to be supported by API 2.0, however:

https://api.stackexchange.com/2.0/questions?order=asc&sort=featured&site=stackoverflow

 {"error_id":400,"error_name":"bad_parameter","error_message":"sort"}

Has this been removed, or superseded by some other API call? (Or am I just doing something wrong?)

Ball got dropped on that one.

Basically, featured was a wierd sort so it was removed as an option against /questions and similar.

It is now available as /questions/featured (and /users/{ids}/questions/featured).
