When I'm on the meta site and view my achievements drop down at the head of the page:

screenshot of dropdown

The links contain relative URLs.

<a href="/questions/..."> ... </a>

This causes them all to point to Meta Stack Overflow (since this is the only place the new top-bar is implemented). Even achievements on other Stack Exchange sites.

    It appears to construct the links like http://currentsite/link-to-the-question-or-answer, so cross-domain links break and it takes you to the question/answer with the same ID on the current site (MSO in this case)

    Few of the links lead to Page Not Found and few take me to random pages which I've never even seen. This bug needs to be fixed ASAP.

    That behavior is new. This morning I used it, and it worked. Nov 27, 2013 at 12:09
  • @R.J - "Page Not Found" will come when post Id doesn't exist on MSO or redirect to the MSO post with that post Id.

1 Answer 1


Some code moved around, when the achievements dropdown was reworked, and the linking to the correct site was mistakenly dropped.

Fixed and built out.
