Revert to a Previous Version of a Page

Site Administrators, Publishers and Editors can revert to a previous version of a page.

The Moderate tab contains a History of the page you are viewing.  Each time the file is saved it is given a revision number and the date, time and who made the revision  is saved as part of the file information.  It is possible to have a page with many revisions.  The green revision is the current published version of the file.  The pink revision is the most recent save of the file.  This could be as a Draft or as a Needs review

  1. To view a previous version of a page click the Moderate tab 
    • Click the view button for the previous version of the page you are interested in. 
    • Note:  this is optional.  You can revert to a previous version without first viewing it.
