Is there a link on a question's page to see the edit history of that question? What is the "normal" way to get this information?

this is one of those things that's very very subtle. i ran into it a few months ago, almost drove myself crazy trying to find the solution. – Jason S Jul 8 '09 at 2:36
upvoted as it was driving me crazy too! – Ether Sep 3 '09 at 23:03
Sorry. It's not intuitive now either. – user173505 Jan 8 '14 at 5:17

Just click on the time that shows how long ago it was edited...

If you do not see a time for how long ago it was edited, that the current version is also the original post (thanks Pesto).

As of 5/22/13 the entire phrase "edited on month day at time" is now a clickable link, which should be a lot more intuitive.

And if the time isn't a link, that means the current question is the only revision. – Hilarious Comedy Pesto Jul 7 '09 at 22:01
That's what I was looking for. Thank you! – Paul Sonier Jul 7 '09 at 22:03
@Pesto - Doh! Thanks for adding that. I'll edit the answer to reflect that too. – RSolberg Jul 7 '09 at 22:04
Nice meta-ing of the question here too; the revision you made makes the edit time show up, which both illustrates RSolberg's point and Pesto's! :-) – Paul Sonier Jul 7 '09 at 22:10
@McWafflestix - aghhhh didn't even think of that :) – RSolberg Jul 7 '09 at 22:12
@Jaydles isn't there any related feature request you can post full answer to? That's nice change, just prefer to have something more "official" declaring it. :) – Shadow Wizard May 22 '13 at 15:35
@ShaWizDowArd, I couldn't find one, but you're right, so I put up a new one here. – Jaydles May 22 '13 at 16:13

Just put the question number in where # is:


e.g. http://meta.stackexchange.com/revisions/3400/list

Not really a link on the page as requested, but useful information; thx. – Paul Sonier Jul 7 '09 at 22:02
Without scripting, asking this is asking users to go away. – user173505 Jan 8 '14 at 5:18
