Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

The tag in my Stack Exchange profile links to different sites depending on where it's being viewed:

  • Profile on StackOverflow:
    • [tag:CSS] =>
  • Profile on StackExchange:
    • [tag:CSS] =>
  • Profile on CodeReview:
    • [tag:CSS] =>

I'd like to have these all link to You can manually specify the language of a code block; why not add the ability to specify the site with tags?

<!-- tag: stackoverflow -->[tag:css] <!--tag: meta -->[tag:feature-request]

The current behavior also cause a bug on my Network Profile:

All tags send me to find a Panda aka 404 Page Not Found.

That seems like a very over-complicated solution - just use the direct link to the tag. Is having it styled as a tag really that important? I believe this has come up before, where I stated that seeing a styled tag on a site implies that it goes to the tag on that site. – animuson Mar 21 '13 at 12:36
@animuson YES. – Cole Johnson Oct 1 '13 at 23:42
For the Stack Exchange profile, I think it should use the site that was used to get the profile from. – Qantas 94 Heavy Nov 21 '13 at 12:17
@animuson - that's a good point. – Wex Feb 4 '15 at 23:37

Perhaps this is a somewhat simpler solution:


So tags can either have the format [tag:tagname] or [tag:sitename:tagname]

That's actually... making perfect sense! I would go with shortcuts though e.g. [so-tag:css]. [so-tag:css] (just in case it'll ever be implemented) – Shadow Wizard Nov 21 '13 at 11:54
I would be in favor of @Sha's solution. [rpg-tag:tag] [gaming-tag:tag] etc. – Emrakul Nov 21 '13 at 21:09
