LH Wayback Machine

Description

LH Wayback Machine integrates your website with the Internet Archive to create easy-to-view snapshots of your site over time, giving you a fully navigable visual history of the changes you’ve made.

The plugin gives you some handy tools to easily trigger and view snapshots:

  • Automatically creates a Wayback Machine snapshot when you update your content.
  • Automatically creates a Wayback Machine snapshot of archived content.

LH Wayback Machines automated functionality works for the following content types:

  • Posts
  • Pages
  • Custom Post Types

This means that whenever you edit/save one of these content types, a snapshot of the corresponding front-end page will be archived via the Wayback Machine. As you update your content, the Wayback Machine will automatically keep a visual history of your changes.

Why did you write this plugin?

Because I liked Mickey Kay’s Archiver plugin but I wanted something that did not need configuration and runs in the background.

How does this plugin work?

When the plugin is activated a queue of old content is created and this is sent off the wayback machine periodically via cron. Any change to your content is also detected, so new or modified content is also queued to be sent to the archive.
