Support » Fixing WordPress » Revision option missing

  • Hi, the revision box is missing in my dashboard, even after adding define( ‘WP_POST_REVISIONS’, true ); in the correct spot in my wp-config.php file. Any other suggestions?

    This may be a plugin or theme conflict. Please attempt to disable all plugins, and use one of the default (Twenty*) themes. If the problem goes away, enable them one by one to identify the source of your troubles.

    If you can install plugins, install “Health Check”: On the troubleshooting tab, you can click the button to disable all plugins and change the theme for you, while you’re still logged in, without affecting normal visitors to your site.

    Unfortunately none of that worked. I disabled all plugins and changed the theme and it still doesn’t appear. Any other suggestions?

    This was driving me nuts, then I realized I had made no change in the text content box (mine was a new page.) I added some text, updated, and the revisions checkbox appeared in the Screen Options. I hope this helps.

    @joedean You solved it for me too. I actually had revisions and they were hidden anyway, so I guess this is something WP could fix.

    @joedean Thanks for the hint! I used the “Muffin Builder” for content building and had no section “revisions”. Now I typed some text in the WordPress editor above and now there’s one revision available. I could figure out that the “Muffin Builder” does not provide such functionality. Among other problems that’s an issue to move away from “Muffin Builder” in the future.
