I wish to add the MathJax page:

to my favorites on my main home page, but clicking favorites only adds it to my meta home page. Is this impossible?

  • $\begingroup$ I'm pretty sure that "favorites" are listed per-site, and meta.math.SE is technically a different site than math.SE. You could always just add a link to that page in your "about me". $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Would bookmarking the page in your browser do the trick? $\endgroup$ Jul 20, 2015 at 5:58
  • $\begingroup$ @GerryMyerson; no it wouldn't - it has to be in favorites on my main page $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ So, what the advantage of having it a favorite, as opposed to having it as a bookmark? Either way, it's a couple of clicks away, right? $\endgroup$ Jul 20, 2015 at 7:01
  • $\begingroup$ @GerryMyerson Probably the fact that favorites show updates? $\endgroup$

Indeed, this is impossible. Favorites are marked per-site. The meta site is in fact a separate site, with some loose connection to main on the level of reputation and navigation.

    $\begingroup$ could the page in question be posted on the main site say as a community wiki? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @JonMarkPerry But then if one makes a change, it would have to be changed in main site as well. So that is more work. $\endgroup$
