Please be aware that a deleted wiki page cannot easily be restored within the system.


Show wiki page history

In some cases, you might want to know the latest change to a wiki page. You can get information on the type of change as well as on the author using the History option. To display it, choose History in the More functions drop-down menu on top of a wiki page.


First, you will get an overview on author and date of the latest updates. Potential comments can already give you an idea about the type of change. You can explicitly choose two versions to display a more detailed view of the changes between them using the blue View differences button at the bottom of the page.


Note: The more distance between two versions, the more difficult it becomes to compare them, since only the selected versions are compared (ignoring the changes that were made in the meantime). The most comprehensible information is thus provided by comparing two consecutive versions. The wiki will merge changes, if changes are entered within less then 5 minutes by the same person. This helps to avoid clutter in the wiki history.
