Revision History


Revision History displays the revision history of a post or page, with links
to the content of each revision.

The revision history is appended to the content of the post or page.

The following are configuration settings which can be changed in the Revision
History submenu of ‘Settings’.

  1. Display on pages.
  2. Display on posts.
  3. Show autosave revisions.
  4. Show the revision timestamp in the post title.

By default the revision history is not shown on any posts or pages.

For control over where you place the revision history use the rh_the_revision function.
It takes optional parameters, before and after. For example:

<?php rh_the_revision('<h4>', '</h4>'); ?>
