The /questions/unanswered API returns the full list of questions (same as /questions).

2 Answers 2


/questions and /questions/unanswered are returning different sets of questions, which both are both functioning properly as far as I can tell.

Of the various functions in the API, those two have seen some of the most tweaking since we went into public beta; so it wouldn't surprise me if they were broken at some point. They're [status-norepo] now though.

  • Yep, that is a no repro currently. questions gives me ~700K, unanswered gives me ~100K. Must've been fixed while tweaking other stuff. Commented May 28, 2010 at 2:11

Do you aware that unanswered questions in stackoverflow means no upvoted answers, right?

The query looks fine for me.

  • Either I don't understand the meaning of no upvoted answers, or there's something wrong. I am getting "total": 683482 in the result, which is the same number SO prominently displays on the home page as total number of questions. Also, in the results list I see stackoverflow.com/questions/194812, which does not have an accepted answer, but has multiple upvoted answers. What am I missing? Commented May 21, 2010 at 9:56
  • Ah, the "total" field could be "bug", you might want to raise it in seperate thread. For questions 194812, let me take a look into the list.

  • @Franci, could you show me your json, or api url? I don't see 194812 in my unanswered results, but found in questions result.
