This question already has an answer here:

Say I'm writing a post on meta, and I want to direct the reader to a specific section of their profile page. One thing one can do is to just link to the profile page of the OP who asked the question, say,


and this will work for OP ─ but any future readers will be redirected to Jane's profile page instead of their own. Is there a smart way to use the SE url handling (say, something along the lines of


or something similar) which will send any logged-in user to their profile page? (And which, ideally, will carry along any additional attributes such as ?tab=badges and the like?)

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Apologies if this is a duplicate ─ it feels like it might be, but I couldn't find any previous instances. If there's a previous thread asking this that I couldn't find, I blame the not-super-useful SE search feature. – E.P. May 9 at 12:38

Yes, it exists; instead of me, use current. Example: https://meta.stackexchange.com/users/current and it remembers query parameters, e.g. this link works too: https://meta.stackexchange.com/users/current?tab=badges

The only exception is the 'Edit profile & settings' page which has a slightly different syntax: https://meta.stackexchange.com/users/edit/current

It works on the network profile too: https://stackexchange.com/users/current.
