For example, if I want to link to the tag predictions page:

https://stackoverflow.com/users/tag-future/current

I could include something like this in the "About Me" section of my profile:

http://CURRENT_SITE/users/tag-future/current

click "Save And Copy Profile To All Stack Exchange Accounts", and it would expand to

https://bitcoin.stackexchange.com/users/tag-future/current

in my Bitcoin.SE profile,

https://stackoverflow.com/users/tag-future/current

in my StackOverflow profile, etc. How can I do this?

    Note that /current will be the visitor's, right? (You will see yours; but anyone else will see theirs instead.) – Arjan Aug 26 '13 at 22:30

Relative links do what you're asking. Place this

[Tag predictions](/users/tag-future/current)

in your profile, and your Bitcoin.SE profile should link to

http://www.bitcoin.stackexchange.com/users/tag-future/current

while your StackOverflow profile should link to

http://www.stackoverflow.com/users/tag-future/current

This should work for any SE page, not just the tag predictions page. It doesn't work for the website field of your profile, however; relative links only appear to be expanded in the About Me section.

    As an aside, /current refers to the visitor/viewer, not to the user who links to it. Not very useful in a user profile, I'd say. – Arjan Aug 26 '13 at 22:37
  • @Arjan True; note that /current is part of the tag prediction link, however; simply including /users/tag-future in your profile won't work. – John Bensin Aug 26 '13 at 23:01
