Cascade automatically saves versions of the pages of your site. Each time you make an edit to a page and save, Cascade will store both the new page and the old one as separate versions. If you make an edit to your page and realize it’s not what you wanted, you can return to a previous version of the page. You can also compare an older version of a page to the current one.
- To access the versions of a page, first locate the page in the Cascade navigation. Hovering over the filename will reveal a drop-down arrow, as shown here. Click on the arrow to show a list of options.
- From the list of options that appears, click on the Versions option.
- This will bring you to a page that lists the previous versions of the page. Remember that each time you make an edit to a page and save it, Cascade stores a new version of the page.
* Note: You can also access this list by selecting the page in the Cascade navigation, clicking on the More tab, and selecting Versions from the drop-down list that appears as shown below.
- Clicking on any version in the list will open a preview of that version. You will see a notification that you are viewing a version, followed by some options.You can click on the Newer or Older links to see previews of the next newest or the next oldest version of the page. Clicking on the Current link will return you to a preview of the current page.
- Clicking on the Compare with Current link will show you the differences between the version you’re viewing and the current page.
- If you want to restore an older version of a page, click on the Activate link.
Using versions can be a useful tool in Cascade. To make versions even more productive, you can add comments when you edit a page to keep track of the changes you make. To do this, simply add a description in the text box titled Version Comments when you’re editing a page.
Your comments will appear when viewing the list of versions, as shown below.
