"View as xml" forum url hack?

    Question

  • Someone once showed me a way to view a forum thread as xml by hacking the url but I forget the trick and I can't find the thread that explained it.  It was something like adding ?view=xml to the end of the url.

    I remember this let you see extra metadata about the posts, like the edit reasons, and date and time when things were proposed or marked as answer.

    Does anyone remember what the trick is and if it still works?

  • Here you go: /?outputas=xml

    ...and yes, it still works. Find myself using it a lot since the new forum design.
