Site history

The Site History Report provides an overview of content changes across your MindTouch site.

The site history helps you identify when a page was changed, who made the change, and so provides a quick overview of how your site has changed.

  • Site history captures specific events that occurred on the site and displays them chronologically.
  • If multiple events occurred in the same day to a page, then an expandable link will provide further information.
  • By default, MindTouch loads only 500 revisions, but as you scroll down and hit the 500th revision, an additional 500 revisions will load in place.

Use the Site History Report

  • The Title column displays the date of the event and a clickable title with path.
  • The Time column displays the time of the event.
  • If multiple events occurred on the same day, the event collapses into one row. Click (more) to display all events that took place for the time period.
  • The Author column displays who made the changes. Click on the display name to display the user contributions associated with that user.
  • The Revision summary displays a short summary of changes.
