How to restore old post version?


(Maestro Magnifico) #1

Hi. There is logs of changes for posts but is there a way to restore old version of post? Sure, I can copy and paste text from old version but I’ll have to do formating manually.

Try the “Raw” view, you should be able to copy/paste that directly.

Tried that, but when attempting to select the raw text of the correct revision, the raw text of the next one gets selected too. In the screencast below, I’m trying to restore the first version of a long post after links were broken by a script:

(not sure what went wrong with the upload here that it became a thumbnail without a link; below is the full version from ingur)

This is super cumbersome. We need a button to simply restore a revision, near the trashcan button.

Hiding revisions isn’t enough, because Admins get to see the latest revision, which in this case isn’t the correct one.
