See all option in inbox Stack Exchange portal link redirects to top questions and answers and not to inbox related stuff (I guess it should be activity or something like that).

  • Odd, I am getting the correct URL, like http://stackexchange.com/users/[...]?tab=inbox – Arjan Apr 9 '11 at 9:37
  • So: what URL do you get? – Arjan Apr 9 '11 at 10:37
  • Same as in your first comment but shouldn't it redirect you to activity rather than top questions and answers? – yojimbo87 Apr 9 '11 at 10:40

This is fixed. If you're not logged into stackexchange.com, the ?tab=inbox ("see all") link now redirects you to the login page. After logging in, you'll be redirected back to your inbox.

If you already have a stackexchange.com account, global auth should kick in, and the login/redirects will happen automatically.


Do you see your user name in the top bar on stackexchange.com?

I guess you're simply not logged in. I cannot see your Inbox either, if I go to your ?tab=inbox URL, and then see your profile instead.

  • No, I'm not logged in. It seems that this is the problem. – yojimbo87 Apr 9 '11 at 10:53
  • However, isn't the activity tab more appropriate in this case? – yojimbo87 Apr 9 '11 at 11:03
  • I guess you should be automatically logged in, @yojimbo87? (In normal usage, people won't have a link to someone else's Inbox. So even an error page would be fine if I would try to see your Inbox. But in your case, you're following a link from your own Inbox. Would be nice if it could log you in on the fly.) – Arjan Apr 9 '11 at 11:05
