Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Changes to hyperlinks are not easily distinguished in the suggested edit diffs.

This is particularly a problem when links are added - when a user updates or adds a link in an edit, I like to view/follow it to make sure it's valid.

However, to know if they added a link, I've got to hover my mouse over all of their edits to see if the link-indicating blue line appears under the text. This is not ideal.

This was apparently fixed a while ago? Perhaps it's come back.


Feature request: Visually identify links that are in green or red suggested edit blocks.

Supplementary request: Show the actual link href diff (if it changed) without requiring us to hover over it and view it in our browser's status bar.
