How do you restore a previous page version?
I've tried clicking on Edit, selecting Page Versions, and I see a list of page versions with the date created.
I thought that putting a check in the box next to the version I want to restore and clicking "Approve" would do the trick, but it doesn't do anything. If I click on the page hyperlink I can see the correct previous version, but can never get it to restore.
I'm using version 126.96.36.199, and have tried on several sites I run.
What am I doing wrong?
If you repeat the steps you outlined, then log out and visit the page - you'll see the previous version.
If you want to get rid of the newest version - you can approve a previous version, then delete the versions above it (more recent versions) - then you (as a site editor) will see the version everyone sees (but you'll loose any changes in the more recent versions).
Instead, check the box next to the old version you want to restore and then click the "copy" icon. This will make a brand new version with the current time stamp and you can then edit that one.
But the version after it in Edit when I'm logged in is all messed up. The Blocks on the left got thrown into the sidebar. Please help.
A little more detail in the last tip at:
When you have done so, its also usually a good idea to clear the cache.
When I just went back to clear the cache, this is what I see. Is this right? Mine are set to Disabled.
Caching stores frequently accessed data so it can be more quickly retrieved. Full page caching can dramatically lighten the load on your server and speed up your website, and is highly recommended in high traffic situations.
Basic Cache - Disabled
Full Page Caching - Disabled
Full Page Cache Lifetime - Default - 0 minutes
I'm not sure now if it was always this way? I had another terrible issue recently where I moved a Blog in the Sitemap, and it was on the second tier due to the number of Blogs, and it wrecked the whole line up of Blogs by date! When searching the forum, I found others had this problem and seems it is a bug in the system once you reach a second level. The person who helps me with the back end of my website did some work so viewers would see my blogs in the right order again, so don't know if the Cache was also disabled then? I'm not sure now. ugh.... I'm not a webmaster....I need help on the back end when things go awry. I could go back and ask him but want your opinion also, please. Thanks!
