If you're interested in how to do something some else has done in their post, it's possible to view what they typed into a post by changing the URL of the post (which may be obtained by either clicking the timestamp of the post at the top right or the link icon in the footer). A post URI typically has the format:
http://what.thedailywtf.com/t/<topic title>/<topic id>/<post number>
Remove the t/<topic title> part of the URI and replace with raw:
http://what.thedailywtf.com/raw/<topic id>/<post number>
Yes - the topic is in the post URI twice. It is assumed this is largely an SEO measure.
- If valid and present, the id is used alone and the name totally ignored.
- If the id is omitted, and the name is currently valid, the name is used.
- Otherwise you're 404'd.
