SOLVED: How to view community information/details on new Reddit website?

Community Info on Reddit has disappeared after the redesign. This has caused frustration among the users, and many are trying to find it

According to some comments, each sub needs to build a sidebar to show this information:

Yes, each sub will need to, and are responsible for, building a new sidebar using the tools available in the redesign.
Since reddit is trying to move away from CSS, mods are expected to do as much as they can with the existing tools and reach out to the admins with things that aren’t available using those tools, in order to hopefully build something that will fill those specific use-cases outside of relying on CSS. At least, that’s my understanding on the matter.

Community info was previously available if we go to /about page of the sub, for example: https://www.reddit.com/r/todoist/about. However, if you try to go there from the desktop browser you’ll get the error “”

Sorry, this is a moderator-only pageYou must be a moderator of r/todoist to view this page

Community info was previously available if we go to /about page of the sub, for example: https://www.reddit.com/r/todoist/about. However, if you try to go there from the desktop browser you’ll get the error:

“Sorry, this is a moderator-only pageYou must be a moderator of r/todoist to view this page”

However, there is a solution, just follow these 4 simple steps.

Solution

Step 1: Open the subreddit and add /about to the URL

For example: let’s say you want to see Community info for https://www.reddit.com/r/todoist/

Then you need to go to: https://www.reddit.com/r/todoist/about

Step 2: Open Chrome Developer tools

Step 3: Click “Toggle Deice toolbar” button

This will bring up the menu with various device emulation options

Step 4: Refresh the page and close developer tools

Done: you can now see the Community Info tab:

So, that is the workaround that I use. Do you know any other ways?
