    Hi everyone,

    This plugin hasn't been updated in quite some time, although it's currently getting a make over for WordPress 3.6.

    Unfortunately, the in-development version was released as version 2.2 accidentally a few days ago, and I wasn't aware. I've just released version 2.3, which is a copy of version 2.1.

    Hopefully you can expect a new version of the plugin (version 3.0) within the next month which brings a range of fixes and better integration with WordPress.

    Thank you for this note buddy. I was about to abandon the use of this plugin instead :D

    This may be more related to the recent WordPress upgrade to 3.7 but once I did the 3.7 upgrade (and 3.7 came out after the last plugin update) I noticed on some post types in my theme saving the post was resulting in Gateway Timeouts by my service provider. Their support troubleshooted and found the following:

    Maximum execution time of 45 seconds exceeded in /home/public_html/launch/wp-content/plugins/revision-control/revision-control.php

    Plugin had worked fine for me prior to that so am assuming changes in WordPress 3.7 might be causing this. Not sure others are experiencing the same issue as for me it occurs because the theme is using multiple post types as part of it's architecture. Will need to disable for now.

    I'm having no issues with this plugin and I'm using WP 3.7...
    Maybe the combination of PHP and Apache and MySQL could trigger some errors? I have it implemented under PHP 5.4+Apache 2.4+MySQL 5.5 in one server and PHP 5.2+Apache 2.2+MySQL 5.5 in another one. Both without issues.

    Seems to be broken in 3.8.1: only showing the current revision. Only noting for documentation purposes; I've seen on your site that you're not currently updating this. Thanks for several good years!

    I also have 3.8.1 and it's working really great to me.

    Please be sure the plugin is well configured. In Settings > Revisions, you should have set the value for Revision Range to be at least 1..4 (if, i.e., you want to keep 4 revisions), thus the values for Default Revision Status for posts/pages to be > 1.

    Thank you Marcelo!

    Revision Range was already set to 2..5,10,20,50,100.

    However Default Revision Status was set to Unlimited number of Revisions for both Posts and Pages. When I set that to Maximum 100 Revisions stored, the old versions showed up in my Posts page again!

    So for some reason it seems to be interpreting Unlimited as 0, but this is an easy workaround.

    Great to know. I never would use "unlimited" because it's always risky to use unlimited offers ;). If you really need that high number of revisions, 100 should be more than ok :)
