Profile: navigation to questions and answers in new tab

In the profile, we have links to our own blogs, questions, and answers. If they are simply clicked they work fine. But if you try to right-click on Questions or Answers to open them in a new tab then you get a list of My Blog Posts.

I suspect this can be fixed by changing URL to the one used when the link is clicked:

  • Hello Jelena,

    sounds like a good... idea! ;)

    Have you put this in the idea place already?



  • This rather looks like a bug. If I right-click on the questions then it should open the question list, not the blog list. Otherwise might as well just redirect to some random pages. Well, sending some people to Google might be a good Idea (sic!) though. :)

  • Hmm, now I know what you mean. But it's not the blog list per se that is opened, but the profile (again). The blog list is the default content that is shown if you open the profile, so that's why it always turns up. At least that's what my tests showed me.

    I never even thought about right-clicking the links (yet?). I don't see any benefit from it at the moment, because you don't only get the wanted content, but also the rest of the profile around it, too. Don't you? oO

    Hey All,

    Thanks for raising, created a ticket for my team to fix.



    EDIT: Thought I'd drop by to tell that the issue has been solved :)

    Hi Jelena,

    I see the same behavior. I'll check with the team.

    Since I'm too inept to find out how to check for existing bug reports conclusively, and don't want to open new Q&As for problems that might already be reported, I hope you don't mind if I tuck on another minor Profile issue here: my Content section seems to be missing links to Q&As (made on the new platform) entirely:

    I have tried to logout (and I even succeeded at least once, I think...) and log in again, and clearing "browser cache".

    I should have 2 Qs, I think: an 8 hours old one, and one from yesterday, and 2 As: a "converted from comment" one here from yesterday, and a "converted from comment by moderator" one here from 16 hours ago. (I can link directly to comments, but am unable to find a link for answers... Gah!)

    Edit: changed links; is there really no option for strikethrough text in the editor..? Gah!

    Edit 1: the profile is synchronized now :) If anyone encounters similar issues, report them to Gabriella Gogl-Gyorgy.

    • Ok I found out how to link to answers: unlike comments, where you just right-click on a link in top right corner and copy link address:

      for answers the top right corner link is not available, and you have to click Share link under the Answer...

      and put up with not only an "obnoxious" popup, which only mobile users maybe could possibly desire, but, on pages with "enough content" with "involuntary page scrolling" as well (for no apparent reason, in no particular direction - just out of the view)
