Anyone connected WP and CVS for blog version control? (3 posts)

    Has anyone tied WordPress publishing into CVS, for version control of the content?

    Considering moving a flat file PHP site over to WordPress, using Pages and the rest of the useful WordPress features to serve as a full Content Management System (CMS). However, version control on content (not just the installed WP files/admin) is a requirement.

    There is some discussion of building our own CVS integration, as a plug-in, but would love to know if anyone else has tackled this problem, or something similar?

    Cheers,

    John

    WordPress store all of its "content" in a mySQL database. So CVS doesn't lend itself well to that concept. You might be able to figure out some way to do something similar to version control with an addon to mySQL or something, but it won't be CVS because no files are modified when you add content. Only the database is modified.

    the closest I've found so far is http://www.watershedstudio.com/portfolio/software/wp-versioning.html and http://rephrase.net/days/05/04/post-versioning but they haven't been touched in a year and half so I'm reluctant to use them. Anyone have anything newer?
