  2. Click on Browse next to the Revisions section.

  3. Next, use the slider at the top of the Revisions page to find the last update that you would like to revert back to. The slider will also show who the user was that made the last update.

  5. If this is the version that you would like to restore, click the Restore This Revision button. Your page or post will be reverted to this version.


  • Any content that you had previously added after this revision has been restored will need to be added again.
