WordPress revision is a great feature!
WordPress is fantastic because it has a built-in save feature that the user doesn’t have to worry about. WordPress revision works by simply saving the page every so often as well as when the page is updated.
I really like this feature, so today I’m going to show you how to find it and how to use it.
First, find pages from the main menu and click there. Then select the page to edit. On this page, look to the top right corner for the “Publish” box.
Inside the “Publish” box are several different options, the third one down in the list is called “Revisions.” Click “Browse” to see all the revisions for the page.
Inside the WordPress revision panel there’s a timeline that shows the dates of each update in chronological order starting at the latest and scrolling all the way back for the first. It is possible to restore from any of the older versions.
This is super helpful when working on a page with multiple people where the need to roll back to a certain save point if someone messes something up is a good idea.
I think it’s so awesome that WordPress has this feature baked in automatically and it’s not necessary to think about it or set this up. it’s just built right in with the framework.
That’s why I really love working with WordPress and why I encourage my clients to use it over other type of solutions such as Bootstrap.
The deal with Bootstrap is that everything has to be rolled back completely on a server and doesn’t have the control feature that WordPress has.
