How to display entry revisions on your website

The Entry Revisions plugin allows you to display entry revisions within a View on the front-end of your website.

We will use Entry Revisions Merge Tags and a Custom Content field to show changes to entries. To get started, edit your View then:

Click the "Add Field" button

A mouse clicking the "Add Field" button

Scroll down and click on the Custom Content field

A pop-up showing a list of available fields. The mouse is hovering over "Custom Content".

Click on the gear icon to configure the Custom Content field

Clicking the gear icon to configure the Custom Content field

Add an Entry Revisions Merge Tag in the Custom Content box

Click the Merge Tags icon to the right of the Custom Content area to show a dropdown with all available merge tags. In this example, we selected the Entry Revisions List tag, one of the available Entry Revisions Merge tags, which will display a list of changes made to an entry over time.

Using the Merge Tags dropdown menu to select the Entry Revisions List merge tag

Save or Update your View

Clicking the Update button to save the modified View

Revisions are now visible on the front-end

Each change displays a thumbnail-sized image of the user who made the change, the date the change was made, and a link to restore the entry values from that change.
