How can I remove post history?


Hi there!

I just want to know how can I remove post history? For example my post have 6 revision. But I want to remove 5 of them. They waste my disk usage. OK, I know maybe it is not too much. But if you think about total 10k post with 6 revision that makes 60k. Depends to your editing, it could be waste too much disk for sure. Actually it is not important either it waste too much disk or not. We should be able to delete post revisions anyway in my opinion.

It is possible to hide revisions, look for the trash icon on the edit history dialog.

I don’t believe that is that @bek is asking. He mentioned disk usage, hiding a revision doesn’t do that, it just removes it from the client view for non-staff users.

That being said, I don’t believe this would be possible without accessing the database.


Yes, you right. I don’t talking about hiding revisions, I want to remove them. Who actually need a dozen of revision all the time? Don’t you think this is waste of resources @codinghorror ?

Anyway, as I said before take it waste or not, we should be able to remove these revisions… If there is no feature request like this, let me make one here :thumbsup:
