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

How does Stack Overflow find 'Linked' questions? Does it store a list of links somewhere in the DB? Or does it extract them from posts/comments dynamically?

I've noticed that short links are not recognized as 'linked' – Danubian Sailor May 28 '13 at 9:00
per my recent experience at Programmers, this feature was broken or changed few days ago. My "see also" / "related" / "dupe" comments that used to add questions in Linked section not long time ago, don't do that anymore – gnat May 28 '13 at 9:46
