Revert

Overview

Revert enables users to restore any previously published version of a page or include file to the staging server. Users can access this function by hovering over the file row in the Pages list view and selecting Review > Versions or by selecting Versions from the Page Actions toolbar of a checked-out page. Reverting a page to a selected version makes that chosen version the one that is available for editing on the staging server. Pages must be published for that version to become available on the production server.

  5. Travel back to the Edit or Preview view to edit or publish the page as necessary.

Note: The page must be published to the production web server to make the reversion viewable on the live website. Should the user or individual page be involved in a workflow, users can submit the page for approval as normal.
