How to delete previous versions (4 posts)

    Is there a way to delete the previous versions of a document and leave only the current version? I tried the Revision Control plugin which does this for posts, but it doesn't seem to work for documents.

    Did you ever find a solution to this?

    Update: I've installed Revision Control and WP Document Revisions on a couple sites now, and RC seems to be doing a good job of managing document revisions and deleting the previous versions.

    Thanks for the follow-up. I think I posted originally because i saw that the RC "Post revisions" metabox does not appear on the admin page for documents, as it does for other post types. Instead there is a "Revision log" metabox, which I assume comes from the WP Document Revisions plugin; that one shows the revisions but offers no way to delete them manually. I see now that I can set automatic deletion through the RC settings page, and since you say that works, it's better than nothing.
    I had disabled the RC plugin because it was also giving me warnings about static and non-static callbacks, but I've been able to fix that in other plugins. I'll give it another try.
