I've noticed that tags inside a user's profile description, i.e.
[tag:tagname], when viewed from the meta profile, sometimes link to the meta-tag, not to the main-site tag like it normally does in meta-posts or comments.
Strangely, on my puzzling profiles (main-site, meta) this doesn't occur anymore, all the tags link to the main site. If I remember correctly, this "fix" happened once I edited my profile again, trying out if
meta-tag works on one of the tags. (Edit: This has been reset, it now links to the meta tags again, but I still have the screenshot of it linking to the main site below (2nd one))
- Screenshot of Meta-SO-Profile linking to the meta tag
- Screenshot of Meta-Puzzling-Profile linking to main-site tag
I've read the official formatting help, but it in the section
Tags it only says
To talk about a tag on this site, like-this, use
See the many questions tagged [tag:elephants] to learn more.
The tag will automatically be linked to the corresponding tag info page.
and in the section
Comment Formatting it furthermore says
[meta-tag:tagname]– link to the given tag's page. Link text is the name of the tag. meta-tag only works on meta sites.
which both don't seem to help me with my problem. Please also note that the
[tag:like-this] example only links to meta here (I guess that's because you can't ask questions directly on the main site of this meta and therefore there also aren't any tags there) , on every other meta site I've tried it would link to the main-site.
Is this a bug that needs to be fixed?
