Well-settled

I see there is a "Changes" button in the CEDI pages (possibly elsewhere as well).  When I click it, I see the list of different dates and times and changes were made, and who made them.  But in looking at the Official docs here on OCP, I don't see any indication that it is possible to see what was changes (maybe compare 2 versions?) or the ability to roll back a changed page.

Am I missing the presence of this functionality in the system somewhere?

Thanks

I believe when you edit a CEDI page (and possibly a post also, I can't remember off-hand) you get a revision history on there.

It would be nice to have that integrated into the CEDI changes page.

The reason it isn't is because we have grander plans for dealing with ocPortal revisions in a unified way across the system – we didn't want to invest too much in this, just to replace it in a future version.

However the revision stuff isn't proceeding at the moment due to it not being funded. I imagine eventually we'll find a way to get that done, but no idea when at the moment.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
