WordPress Gets Versioning

By Deane Barker on July 15, 2008

Version 2.6: WordPress v2.6 gets versioning.

Version/revision saves a copy of a post every time you edit it, allows you to view (not edit) each of those copies (revisions), Shows forward (in time) diffs between any two revisions.

I’m a big fan of versioning. As I discussed in this post, I think it’s a core component of content management, and it’s tough to call a system a true CMS without. This argument managed to persuade Josh Clark, so perhaps Matt Mullenweg read it too?

  1. The thing that always bothered me about versioning in Drupal is that it’s option. Maybe that’s not a big deal, but it just bugged me that you could shut it off.

    I’m probably being silly.

  2. It could potentially cause a lot of unnecessary (depending on who you ask) database bloat that some administers don’t appreciate. That’s why I think it’s better that it’s opt-in rather than opt-out. But really, you can’t complain too much so long as the option is available :)
