Drupal Enterprise 7: Reverting to a Previous Page Version


In the University's standard Drupal 7 installation, content versioning is on by default. For more information about versioning in general, please see Understand Page Versioning.

You can easily revert to a previous version. When you revert, a copy of the version is placed at the head of the queue. As an example, assume a piece of content has four versions:

{ v.1 (oldest), v.2, v.3, v.4 (newest) }

If you revert to version #2, a copy is of that version is made:

{ v.1 , v.2, v.3, v.4, v.5 (copy of v.2) }


How to Revert to a previous version

  2. Find the content
  3. Click the Revisions tab

  5. Scroll to the bottom and click the Publishing Options tab
