What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

When I post a link to another post on the same site, it resolves the link to the question title. When I post a link to Stack Overflow from Database Administrators, cross site, it doesn't.

I know I could make it a proper link and all that, but I'm lazy I do like the automatic resolution of links. Would it be possible, or is it a problem like in comments?

I note intra-site is here but no mention (OK, one comment) for cross-site: Replace trilogy raw links with the current question title?

Edit, 14 Nov 2011: any comment by the management?

I think there is just a difference between links in questions/answers (where it works) versus links in comments (where it doesn't). – Paŭlo Ebermann Oct 4 '11 at 16:32

This is already true on this very Meta, but not on other sites and other Metas it seems. – Arjan Oct 4 '11 at 16:54
(As an aside: using the short referral links is no use between the SE network sites. So, you can drop the 27535. That doesn't fix the auto titles though.) – Arjan Oct 4 '11 at 16:56
@Arjan:yep, but I'm too lazy to modify what I copy from the "link" link above :-) eg meta.stackexchange.com/q/77394/27535 – gbn Oct 4 '11 at 16:58
@Arjan: an extra gnatschuffosecond saved! Excellent – gbn Oct 4 '11 at 17:02

The current implementation is explained in What limitations does converting question links to links with titles have? – Arjan Nov 14 '11 at 19:16
