Revision Control WordPress plugin : Disable or Limit Post revision in WordPress

In previous post I talked about do you really need Post revision feature in WordPress, and we realize WordPress users finally understand that using WordPress post revision feature does not help them. specially when editing your post several time, and your database size is increasing with the useless revision posts, which you might not need.

Revision control is a wordpress plugin, which limit your wordpress post revision or optionally you can disable the wordpress post revision feature. I will suggest use the limit feature up to 2 count, or disable only if you are very much confident with how you use wordpress.

Here are screenshots of the Revision control plugin

    Never tried the Revision plugin. I just might have to swing on by and grab it. Thanks!

    When you write many posts and have many revisions, your database becomes bigger and bigger and this plugin helps to reduce unwanted and old details.

    For newbies, this plugin is a must. For advanced users, it’s something we can do ourselves.

    Every Plugin will slow down WordPress a liitle bit.
    That´s because I use no plugin to turn off the post revision feature, since we can do this easy by editing the wp-config File with these lines of code:

    For turning post revisions off:
    define(’WP_POST_REVISIONS’, false);

    For turning post revisions on:
    define(’WP_POST_REVISIONS’, true);

    For limiting the numbers of post revisions:
    define(’WP_POST_REVISIONS’, XX);

    xx is the amount of post revisions, you will store in your database. Older ones will be deletet.
