The mod-editable part of the /faq used to have a 'history' link (visible only to mods) that allowed mods to see past revisions of that part. There seems to be no such link now, with the new /helpcenter. Can there be?

Anyone remember the url to the old revisions page? – Double AA Jun 5 '13 at 16:15
@DoubleAA I think it was the regular /posts/N/revisions page (with some specific post number that, I'm guessing, varied from site to site). I may be misremembering. – msh210 Jun 5 '13 at 16:18
@double you can use data.SE and look for posts with a PostTypeID of iirc 7. Or you can try to edit it and get the post id from the textarea id. Once you have that, /posts/<id>/revisions ought to work. – Manishearth Jun 5 '13 at 16:19
It'll be a new URL now anyway, @Double AA - for instance, old, new – Shog9 Jun 5 '13 at 16:20
Type 7 is the old FAQ wikis; the new help topics are Type 10 @Manishearth. – Shog9 Jun 5 '13 at 16:20
@shog good to know, thanks :) – Manishearth Jun 5 '13 at 16:21

Moderators should now be able to view the revision history for any moderator-editable page in the help center. (For most sites, this is just the "What topics can I ask about here?" article.)

Moderators should see a link called "history" at the bottom of any mod-editable article; clicking that link will take you to a page that displays any changes made to the post.
