Revision Control


Revision Control is a plugin for WordPress which gives the user more control over the Revision functionality.

PLEASE NOTE: Active support for this plugin is no longer offered.

The plugin allows the user to set a site-global setting (Settings -> Revisions) for pages/posts to enable/disable/limit the number of revisions which are saved for the page/post. The user may change this setting on a per-page/post basis from the Revisions Meta box.

The plugin also allows the deletion of specific revisions via the Revisions post metabox.

Great implementation of missing WP feature

I’ve just started with WordPress after moving from Tiki. Tiki offers individual delete of revisions out-of-the-box, which is very handy. Disappointed WordPress does not do the same.

This plugin in looked to be just the thing to fix it, but despite the WordPress site stating is compatible with 4.9.4, it does not work at all for me. After editing, the list of revisions is empty.

Perhaps someone with the know-how will pick up support from the original author.

Potentially great plugin gone dormant….

Fatal Error

Unfortunately it does not work for WP 4.4 anymore.

Fatal error: ‘break’ not in the ‘loop’ or ‘switch’ context in /XXXX/wp-content/plugins/revision-control/revision-control.php on line 402

And since the plugin isn’t supported anymore, I guess I have to look for an alternative. Shame.

PS Thanks for the really quick fix. Five Stars!
