Direct Links to Sub-Pages

Some system pages like account:you, user:info, or admin:manage provide several “sub-pages”, to which you can navigate by clicking the provided links in the side bar. But it is less obvious if and how you could — via a URL — directly link to those “sub-pages”.

The below tables give an overview of direct URL links to “sub-pages” of

My account (account:you)

  1. To find a user's ID for use with “Private messages, Compose new” go to the user's profile page (to find a user's name you might e. g. search for it), check the “Write PM” link's URL on this profile, and note the trailing number of this URL.

    For e. g. you'd find the number 45996.

  2. To find a message ID go to My account, Notifications, check any messages' “Subject:” URL, and note the trailing number of this URL.

  3. How to find a notification ID needs to be documented

No direct URL links are known for
