Automatic version control for posts with the same prefix in the post_name
To mention some the benefits: * It's all done automatically. Make sure the post name starts with the keyword of the version control group and the rest is handled by the plugin. * It's very light weight. I doesn't modify the database structure and at worst will only do two extra database writes when you are saving a post. * You can instantly change the styling of the outdated tag by modifying the "outdated.html" in the plugin's directory.
When using the script you should know that: * The keyword should be the first part of the name which means that every post can belong to one version control group. * The URLs of the latest post should not be changed frequently as the links may be cached by your computer or ISP. That means the old links may still work for a short period of time. * The keyword cannot contain a dash itself as it is used as a delimiter for distinguishing them in the post names. * If a new post becomes part of a version control group by mistake (ex. when the title starts with the same word as a keyword), changing the post name to a different one does not take off the outdated tag from the previous post in line.
