MCMS tip of the day – revert posting to previous version


Most of you might have experienced the problem that a posting needs to be rolled back to a previous version – either because the author accidentily modified a wrong one or because the editor decides that the changes are not acceptable and rejects the changes.


Although MCMS does provide the revision history browser to view previous revisions of the posting it does not provide a feature to roll back to this old revision.


So an author would need to cut and paste the content from the old revision manually back into the placeholders.


The following web author extension solves this problem:
