The Linked sidebar is very straightforward: it gathers up any links to this question provided by the community via comments, answers, or questions, and presents them in simple list format on the right-hand side of the question. It’s important to note that these links are bi-directional — that is, if another question links to this one, the link will be listed on both questions.

See Stackoverflow Blog for new linked posts


I guess the "Whoa" really applies to this example...

Long list of linked questions

(Ah, apparently there's a limit of 50 links now.)

    I think there needs to be a limit on the number of links provided. Maybe 20? – Tyler Carter Apr 28 '10 at 18:30

Unintuitive as it may seem, if the question or any of its answers link to another SO question, the link will automatically appear in the Linked sidebar.

Also, the link will work backwards - if you go to that question, you will see a link here.
