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.

I can't be sure this report isn't a duplicate, but if it is, I apologise.

I recently posted the meta(!.SO) question here containing a link to another one at the beginning. Now, detecting this, the software gleefully added a "Linked" section to the right-hand column... to, uh, a question unrelated to my link?

Curious as I am how that question was picked, can teh codez for parent and meta sites be made to ignore or recognize links to the other?

Linked questions pop up when the links are intra-site, not inter-site.

The Math.SE public facing side would be one site, the horrors of Math.Meta another.
They won't cross-pollinate the Linked questions sidebar of each other.

Also, there may be a deleted answer or comment among the two posts that once referred to the question that does show up.
