Post and Pages Version Control (5 posts)

    We are using wordpress as a blog and a light cms. In the process of building our website, we have over wrote a couple of pages by accident and the only way to restore was to reach into a DB backup that we did.

    Version control for post and pages would eliminate this problem completely. WordPress could store the last 3 revisions of a post or page in the db, then, if you make a mistake, you could just select the last version, save, and be on your way.

    • Has anyone else ran into this?
    • Is this a feature that is important enough to be part of wordpress?
    • Is there any current solutions like a plugin (we did find one: http://www.watershedstudio.com/ portfolio/software/wp-versioning.html , this doesn't work with wp 2.0+ and is not the most elegant solution)

    THanks in advance for any feedback or suggestions.

    Since the majority of WP bloggers are using it as a "personal publishing tool" (as defined on the About page) and not as a CMS... you are in the minority.

    You can ask it on the hackers or testers mailing list - here nobody would know.

    If you couldn't find... probably, there isn't.

    Sounds like a real candidate for someone (viper maybe?) to write a decent 2.0+ compatible plugin....

    I have found a update for the versioning plugin at
    I just installed it on my up to date wordpress installation version 2.1. Just unzip it into the plugins directory and activate it and it works.
