Quick id lookup

Are you using the mod.io API and want to quickly locate the profile of a piece of content but only have it's ID? We've built a tool to make finding that ID easy!

Posted by on


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:

https://mod.io/search/id/SITEAREA/ID

SITEAREA can be any of the following:

  • games
  • mods
  • files
  • articles
  • members

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:

https://mod.io/search/id/games/77

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!
