Viewing and Restoring Versions

Cascade CMS automatically saves up to 25 previous versions of a page or a file. A version is created each time the asset is submitted.

  1. To see a list of the versions of an asset, select the asset and click on the More, then the Versions tab, or select the asset, expand the context menu and select Versions.
    You can use the context menu to access Versions
  2. The last 25 versions of the asset should display with the time and date, last modifier, and comments. Click the Path of the version that you wish to preview.
    The Versions tab displays the last 25 versions of an asset
  3. If you are satisfied with this version of the page, click on the Activate link. There are several other tasks you can perform from this screen:

    • The Compare with Current link will show the differences between the current version of the asset and the version you are viewing.
  4. Once you have activated a previous version, you should see the “Operation successful” banner.
  5. Publish the page to have it live on the website.
