Looking for a Wordpress RESTORE PAGE Plugin

 8:03 pm on Apr 23, 2011 (gmt 0)

From time to time I build websites for customers that are in Wordpress. This gives the customers access to make simple changes on Pages to their sites.

I am trying to find a plugin that is basically a panic button. If they really mess up a page I would like an option for them to restore it to the original version.

Anyone know of a plugin like that? I haven't found one yet.

Is the built-in revisions system inadequate?

You should have a "Revisions" rubric at the bottom of every post if it has more than one revision. Click on the bar and it expands to show all past revisions.

It seems like the easiest thing to do would be to whip up a screencast of how to restore a revision and have the client load that video on his computer or bookmark the YouTube url or whatever.

I may end up using it, I was just hoping for a "panic button" plug in that sets a page back, something easy to see. I may end up writing one myself that just sets it back to the first revision. The people using this site wont be tech savvy at all and I think the revisions may confuse them.

Well... it confuses me!

No, seriously, I don't find the WP revision system particularly intuitive or useful. I'd rather have something more like a simple version control system that required me to add a log entry ("fix typos", "rewrite intro") and then next to each revision had a "delete" and a "revert to this version" button.

But I can't help you out... don't know of any such animal. If you build something, let us know!

There is future for an APP here.

A script that backups up the database each X days and show a panel of backups allowing you to restore the whole site to any previous version. Content uploads is just an extra (pictures).
