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

Recently, the whole "edited on XX/YY" phrase was made to link to the edit history of a post.

yay, it's a link!

But with the similar "modified XX ago" text on the active questions list, still only the time/date part is a link.

no link makes me sad

Can the whole "modified XX ago" phrase be a link as well?

Consistency. Yep. :) – Shadow Wizard May 24 '13 at 23:38
@ShaWizDowArd ... or conspiracy? Even though there's freehand red and blue circles, this feature still isn't implemented, surely something is going on... – Laf Dec 10 '13 at 20:59
@Laf "Talking to the devs" means 6-8 weeks. And this means... 6-8 weeks. We just have to be patient, put bounty from time to time and hope for the best. :) – Shadow Wizard Dec 10 '13 at 21:04
@ShaWizDowArd I prefer the conspiracy theory, much funnier ;) – Laf Dec 11 '13 at 14:55
By the way, homepage have the whole "asked/modified/answered X time ago" linked. Thats inconsistent with "active" tab. – nicael Nov 25 '14 at 16:53

Implemented in build rev 2014.11.28.2805 on meta and 2014.11.28.2052 on the sites.

Yep, I overlooked this. Talking to the devs, and will make consistent assuming no unforeseen complexities.

I am commenting here instead of posting a duplicate question. There are really only a few reasons that a post ends up in the list. It was either edited or it was answered (or bountied which is already evident). It would be nice if a) the whole phrase was a link to the new content, and b) that the word modified be replaced with answered if the new content is in the form of an answer. – Travis J Dec 10 '13 at 20:03
I am commenting here instead of posting a triplicate question... There's also a bounty now! – user259867 Nov 19 '14 at 4:25
Hmm. Thought we fixed this. Having someone figure out if it fell through the cracks or if there was some complexity. (Yes, I know I lack credibility on "I'll look into this one" at the moment.) – Jaydles Nov 19 '14 at 4:37
Okay, confirmed that we dropped this ball somewhere, but it's back in business. Stay tuned. – Jaydles Nov 21 '14 at 1:54
