There is the About us link in https://webmasters.stackexchange.com/ that redirect to this page https://webmasters.stackexchange.com/company/about but the page return error 404.

Apparently the same happens in this website's footer "about us" link too.


You're in the right place, thanks for reporting it.

We recently moved our "about us" pages from stackexchange.com/about to stackoverflow.com/company/about so the relative link is probably causing this issue. Fixing now.

EDIT: Confirmed fix.


Sorry, to ruin your party, but this bug is much wider than just the WM site.

A list of locations that go wrong:

  • The about us in every site, excluding stackexchange.com and Stack Overflow;
  • The work here in every site, excluding stackexchange.com and Stack Overflow;
  • All meta sites are broken too, including Stack Overflow.

Stack Apps and Area51 are okay, so is mobile since it doesn't have those links there.

This seems related to a change in the company name and a move to Stack Overflow as the 'main' domain name.

I think ever site should redirect to https://stackoverflow.com/company/about and https://stackoverflow.com/company/work-here as they seem to be the correct ones.

  • Noted. Looks like we're just dealing with bad relative links here. – Jon Chan Feb 4 '16 at 16:38
  • No problem. I am checking all other special sites now. Stack Apps seems to be broken too. Mobile is okay since it doesn't use the links there. – Patrick Hofman Feb 4 '16 at 16:39
  • Should be fixed now. – Jon Chan Feb 4 '16 at 16:59
  • Confirmed that. – Patrick Hofman Feb 4 '16 at 17:02
