Recently, SEJPM wrote about a nice feature in the chat about a chat feature;

FYI: If you write [so] in a comment or here in chat it will auto-expand to Stack Overflow. Similar rules apply for [<site-name-in-url.se>]

so you can write [so] to get a link for the Stackoverflow, or [cryptography.se] for a link to our site.

  • How does it work exactly?
  • Are there some other nice features like this?

    $\begingroup$ They are not just for chat, they are useful all over the site, see: [crypto.se] gives Cryptography here too :) I've created a more crypto specific page here on Cryptography Meta. $\endgroup$ – Maarten Bodewes Oct 25 '20 at 23:06

These are so-called magic links; they work in comments but a subset also works in chat.

Chat has more hidden features; some of them are documented here: What Easter Eggs do the chat sites have?
