# Can't access review history because of HTTP 500

I am trying to see the first revision of this post.

When I click one the 1 to unroll the text, an image with three 'loading' dots ... appears.

After a couple of seconds, a message appears in the developer console saying an HTTP 500 in jquery.min.js:4:

GET https://electronics.stackexchange.com/error?aspxerrorpath=/revisions/28255/ad5f0b0a-ec48-4f45-bc3a-11dc3fc33832/diff 500 ()


I was interested in seeing the first review to better understand why the post became community wiki.

I have the same problem with the 2nd review. The 3rd one works great.

I'm attaching screenshot.

Is this a bug ?

There were nonstandard HTML tags used in such a way that the rendering engine gets very unhappy. The original version and probably the diff'd version 2 are probably affected. If you want to see the original content, the "source" tab shows it.

Honestly, I don't remember the reason it was turned into a community wiki, I think the current consensus is that it should be used incredibly selectively.

• So it is a bug that hasn't been fixed since weeks ago, do I get it right ? – Bilow May 8 '17 at 14:19
• Looks like it's been about 5 years. It was enough of an edge case that it was low priority beyond breaking the site. – W5VO May 8 '17 at 14:25
