div.privilege-table-rows with an
a tag and a normal
This has been completed by Sklivvz and was deployed earlier today. The privileges in the list are now html
<a href> links.
It really makes no sense this still happens! SE uses HTML5 (evident by their use of
<!DOCTYPE html>), so it is, now, 'legal' to wrap an div with an anchor - why not do it?
The current technique, whilst clever IMO, is ugly; you cannot copy the URL without opening the link, and you cannot open the link in a new tab.
I've made a userscript to convert the annoying
a's (which, I might add, was 'legal' in previous HTML versions..., and style it so it looks just like a
div. Whether that's the best way or not, I don't know, but it's better than it is now!
If you're unsure on how to install userscripts, see the guide at StackApps
A gif showing it in all its glory!:
However, I really hope this, or the method written above, or any other possible method is implemented by SE soon - a userscript shouldn't be necessary to do this! :(
