View earlier version of a page

Postby Deb McGinley » Wed May 09, 2012 5:37 am

I was editing my Homeownership/Seminars page and saved it. Then realized I removed text I should not have removed.

Is there some was to see previous versions of a Drupal page?

Hi Deb,

To track revisions to pages:

1. After making edits and before saving, click on the Revision Information section right above the URL Path Setting on the page
2. Check the Create New Revision checkbox
3. You can log comments in the message box below this checkbox
4. Click Save

Now when you go to that page, you'll see a new Revisions button beside the View & Edit buttons. If you click on this, you'll see a listing of revised pages. You can click on one of them and choose Revert.

Of course, you first have to choose to create new revisions!
Best,
Madelynn

So it sounds like I can't recover my previous page?

In the future, I'll have to always check Revision when editing pages so as to be able to Revert if necessary. Or is checking Revision once sufficient to always have that button show for all revisions on that page?

You'll need to check Create Revision each time you make revisions of the page and unfortunately, there is no way to recover a page if the Create Revision checkbox was not enabled when you made your edits.
