View Revision History

When you save a topic, Paligo keeps a record of the changes made to each component and each text fragment. The records are called revisions, and you can view them to see how content has changed over time.

History of a text fragment

You can view the history of components, such as topics and informal topics and also the history of individual text fragments (paragraphs).

When you save a component, such as a topic or an informal topic, Paligo stores a record called a revision. This is like a snapshot of the component at that point in time.

You can view the revisions so that you can see a history of the changes that have been made.

To view the revisions of a component:

  1. In the Content Manager, locate the component and select its options menu ( ... ).

  2. Select Revisions.

    A Revision Overview dialog shows the available revisions for the component. It includes the date on which the revision was saved, the user that made the save, and the approximate percentage of changes made since its previous revision.

You can use the Revision Overview dialog to compare revisions and to revert the current component back to an earlier revision.

When you save a topic, Paligo stores a record of the changes you have made. These include the changes to each individual paragraph (text fragment). Each record is called a revision, and they act like a snapshot of the text fragment at that point in time.

You can view the revisions so that you can see a history of the changes that have been made.

To view the revisions of a text fragment:

  1. In topic that contains the text fragment, select the text fragment and then select its para element in the element structure menu.

    A dialog shows the history of the text fragment. It includes a list of the revisions, the time and date on which they were saved, and the user who made the save. There is also an estimation on the amount of changes made compared to the previous revision.

You can use the history dialog to compare revisions and to revert the current text fragment back to an earlier revision.
