You used to be able to just click on a direct link to step from META to TeX.SE or vice versa. This is gone from the latest interface upgrade. Was there a good reason for this?

    @barbarabeeton Thanks for telling me. Your title is very general. When I originally searched for mention of this problem I couldn't find it. Jan 3, 2014 at 21:46
  • You can click on “meta” in the Community Bulletion in the right column, which will open meta in a new window. I don’t think there’s a comparable way back to the main site.

This is as it's a feature of the new top bar. The link is in the 'StackExchange' menu (top-left of screen), where the link for the meta site is directly underneath that for the main site. The same applies to every other StackExchange network site in the menu.

    @GeoffPointer Well it's not universally popular, so I wouldn't say that the design decision is necessary correct, just that it is deliberate!
