I recently asked this question, which featured another question that I asked as linked; but they are not linked at all. The only link is that I asked the questions in question. Did I bump into a bug?

1 Answer 1


This is not a bug. The list of "linked" questions in the sidebar does not only contain links from this question to the other ones, but also links from any of the comments or answers to any other questions or answers and links from those questions or their comments and answers to this question or its answers. It basically tracks all direct connections between both question pages.

In that specific case, an answer to the second question contained a link to an answer from the first question. Therefore both questions appear in each others' linked questions lists.

    Oh, it seems I have missed this. This, and my lack of knowledge of what you just said. Thanks. Commented Apr 19, 2016 at 12:55
