WordPress Revisions in Beaver Builder

What are WordPress revisions?

Whether you're editing a post, page, or custom post type in WordPress, it keeps track of the changes you make. Every time you click the Save Draft or the Update button, WordPress saves a copy of your content.

These copies are called revisions. Your revisions can be viewed directly from the WordPress Page/Post Settings Sidebar or within the Beaver Builder user interface for the page or post you're editing in Beaver Builder.

tip

WordPress Revisions are available for all Beaver Builder layouts: pages, posts, templates, saved rows, columns, modules, and Beaver Themer layout types if Beaver Themer installed.

Access Revisions

  1. Launch Beaver Builder on any layout using Beaver Builder.

  2. On the Tools menu, click Revisions.
    The number of revisions available is displayed in brackets. For example, [10] means this layout has 10 revisions.

  3. The previous versions of that page or post are displayed in a list. Click one of the revisions to preview the layout.
    The preview screen is shown in the following screenshot.

  5. Publish the page to finish accepting the older revision, or discard your changes to return to the currently published page.
