Post Revision Display

Displays post-publication revisions along with differences/changes from current revision on single post views.

0.9 (12/9/10)

  • Internationalization support added, with Spanish language files. (Thanks to Fran Ontanaya! contacto at franontanaya dot com)
  • Language support assumes plugin is in plugins/post-revision-display sub-directory, so you may have to reactivate your plugin and delete the old file if you've been keeping it in the plugins root dir.

0.8.1 (11/19/10)

  • Automatic mode should only display revision info on single post and page views, as determined by the admin options, but in 0.8 it would also show up on other pages if the_content was called. This version closes that loophole.
  • The built-in WordPress diff function uses a class named "content" which may be more likely to clash with user themes: <col class="content">. Let's rename it to get: <col class="diff-content">. (This class isn't used in the example CSS, and you likely won't need to do anything with it.)

0.8 (11/14/10)

  • Admin settings page. (See screenshot #3.) On new installs, or if you deactivate/reactivate before visiting the options page, you should have defaults that correspond to how automatic mode has previously worked. In other cases, you may have to check a box or two after installing.
  • Options for automatic mode to choose where revision info is listed: on single posts and/or pages.
  • Option to hide "no revisions" message when there are no post-publication revisions.
  • Options to set list and diffs headers.
  • Option for manual mode.
  • Changes in how manual mode works. prd_set_manual_mode() is deprecated (no longer needed now that there is a manual mode checkbox option), and $header parameter for the_revision_list_prd() and the_revision_diffs_prd is also deprecated.
  • Fixes bug with how revisions links work when pretty permalinks aren't turned on.

0.7 (8/24/10)

  • Better looking diffs using the built-in WordPress wp_text_diff function. (Requires some styling with CSS to qualify as "better.")


  • Added "manual" mode to allow specific placement of revision info via function calls in the theme. (Automatic mode will be used by default. No need for theme changes.)
  • Manual mode functions have optional parameters to change header text for the revision list and diffs.


  • Revisions now publicly viewable.
  • Only shows post-publication revisions.
  • List of revisions only shown on single post views.
  • Shows differences ("diffs") between previous and current revision. (In content and title.)
  • Robots "noindex" added to page meta if a previous revision is displayed.
