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.

    Sorry. It's not intuitive now either.

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. Jul 7 '09 at 22:01
  • That's what I was looking for. Thank you! Jul 7 '09 at 22:03

    @Pesto - Doh! Thanks for adding that. I'll edit the answer to reflect that too.

  • 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! :-) Jul 7 '09 at 22:10
  • @McWafflestix - aghhhh didn't even think of that :)

  • @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. :) May 22 '13 at 15:35

    @ShaWizDowArd, I couldn't find one, but you're right, so I put up a new one here.

  • 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 '20 at 17:31

Just put the question number in where # is:


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

    Not really a link on the page as requested, but useful information; thx. Jul 7 '09 at 22:02
  • Without scripting, asking this is asking users to go away.
