WP Modification History enables a metabox that shows modficiation history by date/time, user, and the values that were modified. The modified values are shown in a diff format so that you can easily see what lines and characters were modified, deleted, added, etc.
Within the settings page, you are able to toggle off/on meta values in the event you don’t want certain things to be tracked when hitting the update button on that post type.
Possible future features:
- Additional settings and display options (AJAX pagination, limit of results per page/metabox, etc.)
- Comments and remarks on a particular revision
- Email notifications when specific changesets are made
Drop unzipped folder into wp-content/plugins/wp-mod-history and activate the plugin via the plugins admin page.
Alternatively, just install the plugin from the plugins admin page by searching for “WP Modification History”
- Where do I see the modification history?
By default, modification history will be tracked on posts of post_type “post” whenever a change has been made. This means you’ll need to change something (the title, the content, or some custom post meta) and click Update. Once a change has been made, you should see a metabox appear towards the bottom of the edit post screen that will outline the changes that were made.
- Why was this written?
This was written initially as a work project to show editorial staff who changed what and when they changed it. This was later modularized and developed into a stand alone plugin for your convenience.
