If you are using the mod.io API, you are likely querying and debugging games, mods, files and other content by id. Finding those ids on the web can be a pain because our URLs are descriptive, there is no easy way to load the contents profile without knowing it's full URL. Today we are changing that by adding a helper URL that redirects ids to its contents URL on the web.
The URL structure to lookup an id is as follows:
SITEAREA can be any of the following:
ID is the id of the content you want to locate. For example game 77 on mod.io is Meeple Station. I can load Meeple Station via the following URL:
NOTE: This shortcut should only be used for quick translation of IDs. You should always link to the real URL for content if you can, to save a redirect.
I hope this simple tool helps save you some time!
