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?

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.

    Wow... since forever I just assumed you had to be a certain rep to see it because I didn't see a link and only now after another user with lower rep than me talking about viewing it did I find this when searching for how to see edit history.

  • When I edit my post almost immediately after posting it, I do not see the "edited" link. Does it not appear if I edit my own post, but only if others do? Or does it only show up when edits happen after a certain age? Jun 25, 2020 at 17:31
  • @void.pointer a little late, but that's the grace period.

  • Without scripting, asking this is asking users to go away.
