What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

You can fetch a question by providing its id, via SO's API. See this page, for more information.

However, the returned JSON, has no body containing the actual text of the question. Is it by design? Am I following a wrong path?

body=true doesn't seem to work with the 2.1 API, but you can add filter=withbody:


Or you create a custom filter that includes the body.
