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.

See this answer: all the "rss" and "help us edit this wiki" (and possibly the subscribe link too?) point to the meta site -- whereas a click on the link proper goes to the parent site.

Reproducible on MSO: .

The tag link points to Stack Overflow, where it's pointless, but the bubble fetches links and excerpt from Meta Stack Overflow. Compare with the MSO tag .

Additionally, the SO tag becomes red, although it has no special meaning there.

Both of these will be fixed in the next build.

There is no tag menu anymore if it's not a tag on this site, and the parent-site tags won't get extra styling anymore.

Note that the second point will require the post to be re-rendered (i.e. edited).

Will [tag:foo] expressions on metas still be rendered as links to the foo tag on the parent site? – badp Feb 8 '11 at 16:43
Your comment previously said they'll still be rendered as tags (just no red and no menu) -- has that changed? – badp Feb 8 '11 at 16:58
@badp: No, but since you removed your question, I removed my answer :) The rendering will look precisely as it already does in the WMD preview. – balpha Feb 8 '11 at 17:21
