textdiff for content changes

Hi-

I was wondering if it would be difficult to implement something that shows the differences between content revisions?

We have an editor that receives a lot of content update changes daily and sometimes has a difficult time determining what's been changed on a page.

Thanks

Mike

Re: textdiff for content changes

Well, if you turn on Content Version History, you will be able to easily compare a given HTML feature instance's content with its past revisions. But you have to do it on a feature-by-feature basis, not by page.

There are also now fields that track the last updated date/time for features, so you could potentially construct a database query to pull that information, at least to see when things were changed.

Hi Mike,

As Jamie mentioned you can do this now in the compare to current view. Maybe you have not upgraded in a while? We integrated html diff several versions back to highlight the text differences.

Hope that helps,

Joe

Ah I see that it was added in 2.3.9.0, we're a few versions behind that.

I will probably upgrade our site soon.

Thanks Jamie and Joe for the support.

Mike
