I was looking at a profile that seems to have a new layout and was initially confused by the post listing:


The "All Questions Answers" and "Votes Newest" text don't provide any indication as to which category and sort option is selected, and initially I didn't realize that they could be clicked at all.

Are the active ones supposed to be bolded or something?

(I'm using Chrome 48.0.2564.97 m on Windows 8.1, and see the same in IE 11 and FF 40.0.2.)

  • Place the cursor on an answer and it becomes underlined, doesn't that show it's a link? The tag in bold Top Posts show that you clicked on Votes. If you click on Newest the tag changes to Newest Posts

    Although the functionality is present as @Mari-LouA points out, I think even simple separators can improve the presentation: "All | Questions | Answers || Votes | Newest".

  • @Mari-LouA I'm not talking about the posts listed at all, if they were relevant they wouldn't be blacked out. Commented Feb 19, 2016 at 1:28
  • @Mari-LouA Your condescension is fabulous, but I maintain that it's poor design as Lawrence and the votes seem to agree with. Commented Feb 19, 2016 at 19:41
  • It's not a bug, that's a fact. And you didn't answer my legitimate question. How long did it take for you to work it out? If it took more than ten minutes you might have a point. Initially, I was more confused about your post than about the general layout, glad to see you've clarified your point. The layout feature I believe is common throughout StackExchange, so perhaps your observation would receive greater attention on meta Stackexchange.

I added margin between filters so it's easier to read/use. It will be live after our next production build.
