Managing Revisions (Advanced)

The Revisions screen shows any backup copies of your post or page. Each time you save a draft manually or select Update, a revision is saved. Revisions allow you to look back at the recent changes you’ve made and revert to an earlier version if necessary.

OVA will store the last 10 revisions for each post or page on your site.

To restore an earlier version of a page or post:

  1. Go to My Site → Dashboard Pages (or Posts)
  2. Edit the page or post you want to view revisions for.
  3. On the right side, under Publish, look for Revisions.
  4. Click Browse

The Revisions module will not show until there are revisions to view.
