Glitch with username link in profile card

Just noticed the following behavior:

  • In any topic or PM, click username or avatar to open profile card
  • Hover over username/avatar — URL destination preview (i.e. in lower left in Chrome) shows as current topic URL, not user profile
  • Despite the wrong URL showing on hover, clicking directly still brings me to the user profile
  • However CMD + click opens the current topic (same page) in a new tab, rather than the user profile as expected

I tend to use CMD + click to open user profile in a new tab pretty often so I think this is a recent regression. This happens on two different forums I run + Meta, and in multiple different browsers.


@Johani any idea why you removed the content of the href attribute in the user card?

There was some weird things going on because you had both an action doing some routing and a href doing something else, can’t remember exactly but something was not right. Will look at this.


Ok, I think it was misbehaving before (mostly some tests were failing), but other changes we made in this PR actually make it possible to have this.
