We’ve noticed that linking a topic by using the full url e.g.
http://domain.com/t/topic-slug/1234 vs the relative url
/t/topic-slug/123 result in different behaviors on our site.
Linking the full url (
http://domain.com/t/topic-slug/1234) will cause the whole page to reload (and clicks don’t get counted), whereas the relative url (
/t/topic-slug/123) will refresh the ember outlet without having to refresh the entire page.
