Undo post edit


Recommended Posts

Is there any way of an easy reverting post edits as an administrator?

We had a malicious user edit a lot of his post by removing content and changing it to ".". Of course I've removed his access and turned off ability of post edition after some time for usergroups on the forums but cleaning up after him took time and I'd like to know if there's an option do do it easy and quick. 

It's said on the feature tour here that "In the case of edits, previous versions of content can reinstanted at the click of a button." - so please tell me how to do that in case of posts.

I have edit logging turned on of course :)

Yeah, that I do know but I hoped for an easy way to revert potential vandalism :).

Don’t let it happen in the first place by limiting the edit time. Every forum will have such users sooner or later. 

But I agree to the feature request. If the versions can be shown already, a button next to it “revert to this version” would be an expected and useful feature.
