Fun WordPress Trick
Take 30 seconds and do this little trick on your WordPress site, you’ll get a kick out of it.
- Login to your admin area and go to the edit screen for one of your pages (doesn’t matter which one, just not a new one).
- Scroll down to the Revisions box, and click on any revision
- Scroll down and put the 2 radio buttons like you see in the picture
- Click “Compare Revisions”
I hope that made you smile
That is brilliant and really did make me smile on a cold, dark Friday here in the UK!
Hi Andy, I didn’t actually know about this either. Kudos to Scott for digging this one out! Oh, and it’s pretty miserable down here in the south UK today too!
Quite a silly little ditty to brighten your day.
I couldn’t find a revisions box?
I found it, very funny! Thanks guys!
That was great!!! Although, I have to admit that I started to panic @ the count down!!! Lol…thanks!
Hilarious! Glad you liked it
This is pretty good. Thanks Scott!
😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 awesome… 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀
Just wondering — I try this trick and I get: “Sorry, But you cant compare a Revision to itself.” Somehow, I’m not all that amused. I’m missing something; how do I get there?
Hey Mike, that’s weird, are you updated to the latest version of WordPress?
Yes, I have 3.4.2 installed. But my “Compare” button appears only at the bottom, not at the top as your screenshot shows.
I do have a plugin installed called “Revision Control” to limit the number stored, and maybe that is in the way.
On the other hand, when I deactivated it, all I got for revisions was a linked list. Something is definitely different from other people’s setup.
This is really amusing. How did you come about this?
Heard it through the grapevine
Okay, okay, now I’ve seen it. I had to deactivate the Revision Control plugin, then try it.
Clearly, somebody had a day with nothing to do and decided to put it to good use. A little bit of pointless fun is a great contribution to the psyche of the whole world. Thank you!
nice and brilliant
