[HowTo] Manually Access Your & Others Post History

[ Edited ]
13 replies 905 views Edited May 23, 2013

Due to a software bug we all are unable to simply access our community post history from our profiles. Following I will be showing you an alternative way or better said, the manual way, to access your post history tracker, as well as, that of fellow community members. Here we go.

 

 

First, we need to find the number string associated to your user ID. We all have one. You can see your's or that of fellow community members by hovering your mouse pointer over your PSN ID or their PSN ID. For example, mine is 52572

 

|To easily copy the number just visit your profile or the user's profile and copy the number from your browser's URL bar.

Secondly, add that number to the following URL string

 

--Replace the ##### with the actual numbers.

 

http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/forums/recentpostspage/post-type/message/user-id/#####

 

Then copy the URL, reflecting the user's number string into your browser URL bar and navigate to it. This is all it takes.

 

For example, my post tracker's URL is:

http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/forums/recentpostspage/post-type/message/user-id/52572

Go ahead, give it a try :smileywink:

 

Note: Due to the stubborn Text Editor that does not want to understand that I want for the URLs to show as plain text and not links, I can't provide you with plain text version of the URL; nevertheless, this should not stop you from simply highlting and copying the URL string into your web-browser's URL bar.

It has been acknowledge and a solution is being seeked.  However since SONY staff only manages the forums, this situation requires a little input from the Lithium guys as to why it is not operating nominally.  They could be waiting for an answer just like the rest of us.  In the meantime, this workaround is effective.  Inconvenient sure, but manageable.

Thank you guys :smileyhappy:

 

I hope this becomes useful to those who make use of the post history tracker feature, moreover,  serve as a small patch till Lithium gets around to bringing the post history module back to our profiles.
