... do you find the node number of a page?

In ... create a cross-reference to another page, we noted the node:XXX syntax but how does a user know the node number?

  • If you have more than "view" privilege, you can find the node number by moving your mouse over the page available tabs such as "Edit" or "Revisions" and inspect the link
  • The link is like this STAR/node/802/edit or STAR/node/802/revisions respectively - in this case, the node number is 802 and correspond to Software & Computing
  • Use this node number for your cross references


  • Stating the obvious, if you are not logged in or working from a guest account, you will NOT be able to see any tabs on any page
  • Similarly, individual users may set protections on pages preventing you from accessing it ... please report if this is the case
