The help icon in the Stack Exchange site's top bar is not working.

StackExchage.com help link

I navigate to my Stack Exchange profile and clicked on that icon, it is not responding. In other sites it is listing the drop down list.

    Just to confirm: i tried it on several devices, it seems to be a general bug...

  • @creyD indeed, there is simply some JS code missing, the team did not copy it when copying the HTML. Jan 13, 2018 at 17:25
  • @ShadowtheHedgehogWizard why they didn't make a copying and pasting from Stack Overflow like many other developers around the world? Jan 18, 2018 at 15:48
  • @alexolut most likely this isn't so simple. The code is different, they need to copy specific parts to other parts. Like a puzzle. Jan 18, 2018 at 17:04

    Fixed for now :) Not 100% certain that we've arrived at the final special case layout for SE.com (the fact that it remains a special case presents some problems), but everything shown there should now work. Off to go find and tag a half dozen other oddities that were probably the result of a few missing JS bits there.

Currently the help icon is removed from the stackexchange.com top bar. It seems the issue has been fixed.
