I'd like to know how can one find the revisions of a question which has not been previously edited. (In the last case I know what I have to do: click on "Edited date...".)

    $\begingroup$ Write the URL, http://math.stackexchange.com/posts/<postID>/revisions, in the address field of your browser. (That also works for /timeline, by the way). $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 7, 2017 at 23:29
  • $\begingroup$ @DanielFischer Thanks. So, not an available button to click on it in this case :( $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ No, unfortunately not. Depending on the browser, one could make a user script or bookmarklet to add the button. $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 7, 2017 at 23:34
  • $\begingroup$ I don't understand. If it hasn't been edited, how can it have revisions? $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 8, 2017 at 1:58

    $\begingroup$ @GerryMyerson You can still access the page that would show edits if they existed, and the URL still calls it "revisions" regardless. E.g., the "revisions" for this question: meta.math.stackexchange.com/posts/25859/revisions This used to be useful for getting the source (to learn how to write math), but now anyone can get the source with edits or suggested edits. Now the only use I can think of when there aren't edits is seeing bounty history. Oh, getting source of locked posts is suggested here: meta.stackexchange.com/a/135959 $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 8, 2017 at 2:32

    $\begingroup$ You can also see deletion/undeletion, closing/reopening. $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 8, 2017 at 2:38

    $\begingroup$ See also meta.math.stackexchange.com/tags/edit-history/info It works similarly for timeline. There is also this feature request on this meta: Is there an easy way to access the revision list of an unedited question? (And you can find several links to related posts on the main meta.) $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 8, 2017 at 5:51
