I’m posting this as a because I’m sure it’s a change in behaviour following a recent upgrade (related to the timeline changes), and it seems incorrect to me. If this is indeed the intended behaviour, then please make this a feature request.
Previously, if I linked to a post in another topic, a link to that topic appeared in the gutter beside my post and, IIRC, the one-box also linked to the post in question. A link back to my new topic would also appear beside the quoted post.
Now, if I link to a post in another topic, there is no link from the one-box (unless the link is to the first post) and no link below my post. A link back to the new topic does appear below the post linked to. So the problem is that there is no longer any way to visit the linked post. As we quite often want to link to similar issues in other topics, it’s a real loss of functionality for us.
The issue is related to this:
and as mentioned in that topic:
Spot the difference in those one-boxes. That’s bizarre, because in preview the second one was missing the link, which is what is happening on our forum since the upgrade.
While the link to the topic does appear in the topic summary drop-down, it’s neither practical nor intuitive to scroll back to the first post in order to follow a link made in post #30, for example.
