Different Versions of a page


I dont want my users to be able to see the diferent versions of a page. I want them to be able to see only the last version, and even not be able to see the changes between different versions. Is there any configuration for that ?

I'm quite sure that such a functionality does not exist.

I think this would be a great stopgap solution. It is important to note that you would still be able to access the historical page information with the following url.


Not the worst security hole in the world because you would have to know the pageID, but a security hole all the same.

Orginial comment sounds like a feature request for the backlog.

But that plugin is not available for OnDemand, which is the product the original poster i using.


That is an excellent point! I completely space cadetted that this was an OD issue.

Have to agree with Timothy that there is then no way to do this. Suggest you submit a feature request and have your friends and coworkers vote it up. I'l even throw some votes at it if you post your issue URL here.

Is this true? What if you publish confidential information on a page by a mistake?

well, let me use an example.

I have created a page on 08/10/2013. It`s Version 1.
Then on 08/12/2013, I make some modifications -second Version-
& today, I do my last modifications ( 08/15/2013) -third version.

What I want is that, the users be able to see only the last version (08/15/2013) & not be able to see the other ones.

A Space Admin can delete previous versions of a page. It's one of the options on the Page > Tools menu.

It's not an answer to Realtyna's question, but it does allow you to permananetly delete confidential information which has been published inadvertantly.

Alex, Thanks for your comment. That`s a solution, but I want administrators to be able to see the old versions. I want to restrict old versions only for Users (I mean anonymous.) and it seems that there is no option to do this.
