Revisions system#135

Actually it’s a pain for content editors that there’s no built in revisioning or backup system. A simple versioning for files to move backwards 2 or 3 steps would be awesome!

A simple content lifecycle as found in plugins (publish later) would be a great standard tool I guess most heavy content editors are looking after!

Changed the title from "Built-in Revisions & Publishing" to "Revisions system"

This is indeed a fantastic idea for ADVANCED workflows - useful for use-cases where the site is used for serious blogging or professional publishing. But if I may make a request: if at all possible, please make all features related to these ‘advanced’ workflows OPTIONAL - ie., easy to hide from the interface. Most small business owners would not need these, and adding extra UI controls would actually detract from the delightfull and ‘super easy’ Kirby interface.

Perhaps this could be an option on the Page blueprint, e.g. revisions: true?

@Admin exact, I also think this should be optional cause it’s only useful for specific cases!

Agree on the optionality of this. Otherwise it would complicate matters for people that want to use a VCS (like git) for version control

I am currently building my first projects with kirby, coming from wordpress. Actually I was pretty disappointed when I found out that you can´t preview changes that are made in the backend.
From clients perspective this is quite challenging. Especially when you have a modular layout system with blocks.
As a cleint I´d like to try which block suits best for the content that I want to publish – for this I need a preview or review.
Therefore this function is an absolute must have in my opinion.

@Pb you can preview pages also hiddenpages. Click on open in the left top corner.
And this point has nothing to do with a revision system. Or clear up what you meant?

@Kontakt With a revision system you could preview changes to existing pages before publishing those changes.

Revisions provide confidence in using a CMS, especially with multiple editors involved.
Key features:

  • preview changes for unpublished content
  • undo saved changes
  • un/publish translations independently

This is a feature that many other CMSs provide, and Kirby currently doesn’t. Would love to see this implemented making kirby even better and more versatile.

This is one of the first things people ask when handing over a Kirby project

Struggling with some current clients who have come from Wordpress that there not way to go back to content versions or track previous changes.

@Robert Farrelly eventually helps you the git plug-ins for Kirby until a eventual revision system is available.
