Wikitravel:Page history help
For each page on Wikitravel, you can use the Page history feature to review the changes that have been made to the page.
Changes are listed with the most recent first; if there have been more than 50 changes for the page, the changes are grouped in chunks of 50. You can view older changes by navigating to older chunks.
Each change in the list has the following information associated with it:
- Date of the change
- Name of the user who made the change, or IP address if changed by an anonymous user
- Summary of the change, if any
- Whether or not it's a minor change ("M")
The date of the change is linked to a copy of the page as it was after the change was made. The name of the user is linked to their user page.
There are also two difference links for each change. The cur link shows the difference between the contents of the page at the time it was changed and its current contents. The last link shows the difference between the contents of the page at the time it was changed, and the contents of the page just before it was changed.
You can customize the way the Page history page works using the Preferences page.
The page history is useful for reviewing the changes that have been made to a page; it is also used to revert a page to a previous version.
