Support » Plugin: Revision Control » Great implementation of missing WP feature

  • I’ve just started with WordPress after moving from Tiki. Tiki offers individual delete of revisions out-of-the-box, which is very handy. Disappointed WordPress does not do the same.

    This plugin in looked to be just the thing to fix it, but despite the WordPress site stating is compatible with 4.9.4, it does not work at all for me. After editing, the list of revisions is empty.

    Perhaps someone with the know-how will pick up support from the original author.

    Potentially great plugin gone dormant….

    Still works fine for me on WordPress 4.9.4.

    It sounds like you’ve probably got another incompatible revisions plugin installed, or you’ve defined the revisions constant in your wp-config.php file to force revisions off.

    There’s also the possibility you’ve simply got too many revisions for PHP to process and it’s aborting before it even gets to the plugin.

    Sorry it didn’t work for you, better luck with another plugin.

    I understand that you’re not actively supporting this, but I will give you what information I have, in case you find it helpful. Since you’re not actively supporting it, thank you for the quick response!

    No other revision plugins. I can’t say it isn’t one of my other plugins, but I doubt it.

    …or you’ve defined the revisions constant in your wp-config.php file to force revisions off.

    I’m new to WordPress, but I think revision are enabled. I have found this in wp-config.php: define( ‘WP_POST_REVISIONS’, TRUE);

    There’s also the possibility you’ve simply got too many revisions for PHP to process and it’s aborting before it even gets to the plugin.

    Not possible. I’m just getting started, there are only a few dozen files and revisions combined.

    Sorry it didn’t work for you, better luck with another plugin.

    I found another that worked, but I like you UI better. I decided to give yours another try. This is what I found:

    This message was displayed on each of my pages after installing the plugin:
    “Revision Control: Currently storing an Unlimited number of Revisions”

    This gives me the impression revisions are active. But when I update a page there are no new revisions listed. However, if I

    • select “unlimited number of revisions” or “Maximum X revisions stored”
    • update the page

    then the revisions appear and future updates add revisions to the list. So it was just a misleading message. I’ve reinstalled the plugin, and will raise it from 3 to 4 stars if I can. I’ll come back after I’ve further developed my site. If all is still going well, I’ll change it to 5. Thank you for the plugin!

    (P.S. ability to delete an individual revision really should be a out-of-the-box feature – so good for you filling an important missing feature)
