Is there any way to reverse out a page chage shown in the History? I need a sort of "Undo" for page changes. --129.230.252.1 15:07, 18 October 2005 (UTC) richard@lbrc.org

Link to page version comparison[edit]

Hello all- I hope this is where to make a suggestion for this help page. I think it would be helpful to add, under the section titled Linking to a specific version of a page, a note informing users that the way to make a wikilink to a version comparison is to make an external-style link using the comparison page's url. Hope I'm making sense. I think it would also be good to put this info somewhere in the help area that deals with wikilinks. I eventually found the guidance under Help:Link#External_links_to_the_same_project, but it took me a while and the method for making such a link is only implied, as opposed to the instructions being specifically stated. I made this same post on the talk page of the en copy of this help page. Thanks. -Eric my en.wp talk page


Could it possible to include a history page[edit]

Hi there.

I want to include a history page in a page. The ideal is something like following:

{{{{FULLPAGENAME}}/history page}}

But I don't know how to do it? Is there anybody giving me a hand? Thanks. --Roc michael 15:22, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

Afaik not possible. Unless you write an extension or use site JavaScript... -AlexSm 02:30, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

Page Size[edit]

I hve just noticed that the screen shot on the page doesn't contain the page size bit (normally displayed as (1,715 bytes) on the history page for example. Just wondering if anyone would like to update this? ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 21:53, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

New screenshot needed[edit]

We need a new screenshot illustrating the page history. The image on the page is outdated, last updated in March 2007: just compare the image below with how the same page looks today (January 2009) and see the differences (excepting for a couple of lines that were doctored for the sake of ilustration): Screenshot page history.png

These are the statements that are outdated (2007), with my proposed corrections (Jan 2009):

1. The page name stays the same, but the "history" tab is highlighted.
1. The page name changes to "Revision History of (article name)", and the "history" tab is highlighted.
2. These links take you to the most recent edits (Latest), oldest edits (Earliest) or the next or previous page of edits (Next n / Previous n). Note that the black text in brackets will become links, when applicable.
2. These links take you to the most recent edits (Latest), oldest edits (Earliest) or to the previous or next page of edits (Newer n / Older n). Note that the black text in brackets will become links, when applicable.
5. (last) takes you to a diff page showing the changes between that edit and the previous version. The most recent version (the one on the same line as the "last" you clicked on) appears below the changes, so you can see how the page was rendered.
5. (prev) takes you to a diff page showing the changes between that edit and the previous version. The most recent version (the one on the same line as the "prev" link you clicked on) appears below the changes, so you can see how the page was rendered.

Explanations of new features (including external tool links) should also be added (and renumbered):

#. Browse history: From year (and earlier):____ From month (and earlier):____. (explanation...)
External tools:
#. Revision history statistics. (explanation...)
#. Revision history search. (explanation...)
#. Page view statistics. (explanation...)

I would have been bold to make these corrections myself, but they would conflict with the current screenshot (perm link), so the screenshot needs to be updated first. --HYC 10:46, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

I was maybe a little too bold in making my correction, which I now realize may not even be correct. The problem does need to be addressed, however. Am changing my new thread to a part of this conversation. Looks like nobody has THIS page on a watchlist: the screen shot has STILL not been updated. I'll be bold again.

History size?[edit]

If every edit is saved, even after deleting a page, does the history take to much space from the memory? If it does, is there a way to remove the history feature or make it save only the last 10 edits? --177.19.75.70 01:51, 13 August 2012 (UTC)
