This is a short and hopefully sweet post with a quick tip I use in Pinboard all the time, but which as far as I can tell other people don’t really know about. I’m also always surprised when I try pinboard apps and they don’t support this feature.
Well, you can, and it’s surprisingly simple, just shove the tag after
/popular/t:. So, supposing you want popular links about Markdown, just visit:
Want iOS, that’s:
and OSX is:
Although presumably people will start using macOS soon!
You’ll probably have noticed the tag prefix (
t:) elsewhere in pinboard as
well, such as after usernames (which are prefixed with
u:), and so I suppose
it’s also possible that there are other ways of searching too.
Hopefully you find this quick tip as useful as I do.
