Just think of a broken plugin code or a template, or writing a blog post and deleting it just to understand the previous draft was better. However, the problem is that you can’t revert back to the older version. Isn’t it scary? But don’t worry, with WordPress it is simple to do backups and undo changes to the code and posts similarly with backup and restore. So in this article, we will discuss how to undo changes in WordPress to restore your WordPress website. Let’s get started.

What is Post Revisions?

Revision or Post Revisions is an inbuilt feature of WordPress that saves a post as a revision either when you click on save or as autosave. In the case of an autosave feature, the old text will be substituted by altered text every 60 seconds. Whenever you click on save, publish or update after your post is completed, the latest version of the revised post is stored in the database.

Alike to a specific blog post, you can still restore the WordPress site to an older date, but for that, you will require to have a backup of the database file. Additionally, you can use backup plugins to backup the WordPress website.

Why and when to utilize Post Revisions?

One of the most general questions asked by people is, “When there is Redo and Undo option available, why should I pick post revisions?” or “How does post revision help?”. Well, the answer to this quite easy, as by post revision you can undo changes done in WordPress posts long ago. However, the undo option works only until your window is not closed. Once you close your post you will not be able to sitch. Post revision is useful in such a case. Additionally, you can switch your draft any number of times, do the necessary alterations, and then publish whenever required. Another huge benefit of post revisions is that, if you have several authors on your WordPress Website, you can observe each other’s posts and identify what alterations were done to the article. Ultimately this helps in larger productivity and improvement of your website content.
