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?

    @ShaWizDowArd ... or conspiracy? Even though there's freehand red and blue circles, this feature still isn't implemented, surely something is going on...

  • @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. :) Dec 10, 2013 at 21:04
  • @ShaWizDowArd I prefer the conspiracy theory, much funnier ;)

  • By the way, homepage have the whole "asked/modified/answered X time ago" linked. Thats inconsistent with "active" tab.

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.

  • 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.)

    Okay, confirmed that we dropped this ball somewhere, but it's back in business. Stay tuned.
