View your site history (MT4)


Site History provides an overview of changes across the whole site along with who made the change and when the change was made.

Displaying revisions

The Site History view allows you to see the title of the page that has a revision associated with it, the time that the revision occurred, the author that triggered the revision and a summary of the revision. There will usually be about a 30 sec delay of revisions showing up after they occur, so if you don't see the revision right away, give it a little bit of time and then refresh the Site History view. 

Note: The Site History is only accessible by Admin Users. Community Members and Anonymous Users do not have access to view the Site History. This prevents these users from making any changes to a page that was modified by a Pro Member.


By default 500 revisions will load. As you scroll down in the view and it hits the 500th revision, then an additional 500 revisions will load in place. When it loads the additional revisions, you'll see a message like this:


As you scroll down and encounter a new date, the date will stay fixed at the top of the view so that you always have context as to day that the revisions occurred.

NOTE: The user will not be able to see events for pages that they don't have access to.
