This component and two plugins provide a simple content versioning solution for Joomla. It saves a backup copy each time content is saved. It also adds an editor button to allow you to restore a document you're editing with a backup version.

Once either or both of the plugins are enabled, I found I can no longer submit content with anything other than the administrator back-end: all front-end content submission now generates a complete failure and the site crashes.
I am using Joomla 1.6.1.
We fixed this issue (with Joomla 1.6.1 only)
But I am working with Joomfish too, and then it seems to produce trouble.
As I've seen the question about Joomfish support was posted 1,5 years ago. Is there anything new?
Thanks a lot, Heike
It would be nice to be able to save versions of more items, e.g. modules, products, translations etc. The versions button actually shows on many of those items, but it only works for articles.
One workaround that I can see for the time being, for those that must use JCK, is to go ahead and use JCK with versioning enabled, and if you have to restore to an older version then do so with JCE or TinyMCE and then switch back to JCK for editing :)
On a final note, I see that it's been almost a year since this plugin has been updated. That worries me a little, and I would hope that the developer doesn't abandon this very useful project.
+ Support languages
+ Better preview, it´s a little confusing for me.
+ This is the one, incorporate in the preview who published the article, who put it in frontpage or not, who recategorize, etc. So, allow me to easy look in the preview other changes in the article but not in content.
Thanks for your component.
My company builds websites that make use of the popular K2 content system.. And while the version plugin does show up under the editor window, there are no revisions in the system because it's not K2 aware.
For most people this is a non-issue but it's good to know in case you're using something other than the out of the box Joomla content management.
With all of that said, I've used it in the past before we switched and it definitely saved our life more than once.. if/when K2 support is ever included, I'll be a user again.
I'm installing it in all of my sites. Not only is it great for client article screwups, it's also great for the webmaster. I am more willing to make test changes knowing that there is a list of backups of the articles -- just a click away.
the preview is a little bit confusingly.
but there is a several problem with the JCE-editor.
using them together, you lose the content.
This plugin does work with the JCE editor. Please post a question in our support forum if you have a problem. Thanks!
This extension has helped me several times as I now can find, compare, and return to previous versions of articles.
This extension is easy to use and I believe it simply is a must for anyone looking to make life easier for themselves when working on a live site.
Again - the component works GREAT now that I got that solved. Thanks!
I love the way I can set how many levels/versions to keep, and even more impressive is the preview showing what has been altered in different versions! Absolutely awesome!
I am not sure how hard it would be to integrate this solution with Joom!Fish, unfortunately for this reason I will not be able to use it on any of my sites.
When I edit my translated articles the revision button is there but it doesn't work
Thank you for this great tool!
Thanks for your comment. We are planning to add Joomfish support as time allows.
