Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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:

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
