Support » Fixing WordPress » Post revision disappeared

  • The option revision has disappeared and is now missing in the posts. Where to activate again? I have tried to make different posts with changes, but the revisions are gone. This happened after plugin update, but I don’t remember which plugin that was updated. I tried to deactivate/activate all plugins, but revisions still missing.

  • Maybe just the revisions section is hidden. When on the post edit page, in top right corner you’ll see “Screen Options”, click it and checkboxes will show up, make sure the “Revisions” checkbox is checked.

    Hi, thanks for your answer. I did check, and there the checkbox has disappeared. In old post its still there, but in new ones its gone.

    I’d suggest disabling one plugin at a time and checking if the revisions are back, you’ll find the plugin causing the issue.

    Thank you for your suggestion. I have tried it now, but it didn’t work.

    I came across a similar behavior when deleting all post revisions manually via the database. The (new) revisions were no longer showing on the post-edit page, and the Screen Options tab didn’t have the Revisions option anymore. Just to clarify, they were still being saved to the database.

    To fix, I went to Dashboard > Updates and reinstalled the core WordPress files. Now my revisions are showing on the post-edit page and the Revisions option is back in the Screen Options menu.

    I’ve reported this as a core bug here.
