Restoring eBay’s Sale History Link

It’s very useful to be able to see the sale history for an item that isn’t yours. You might want to see how quickly it sells, or whether offers are likely to be accepted or rejected. Unfortunately, eBay seems to have recently removed this link. The good news is that the page still exists and can be accessed via the same URL as before. Here’s a GreaseMonkey script to turn the “x sold” text into a clickable link like it previously was:

// ==UserScript== 
// @name     Restore eBay sold items link 
// @version  1
// @grant    none
// @match *://**
// ==/UserScript==

element = document.querySelector("div.d-quantity__availability span:last-child")
text = element.textContent
re = /(.*)\/itm\/([0-9]+).*/
url = document.location.href.replace(re, '$1/bin/purchaseHistory?item=$2')
element.innerHTML = '<a href="' + url + '">' + text + '</a>'

I have not tested it on other userscript plugins. The end result looks like this:

Clicking the link takes you to the sale history page:
