Magento’s version control system for CMS pages gives you the ability to create multiple versions of a page, track the revision history of each, and restore previous versions. You can separate the ability to create and publish content, based on permissions.
Pages under version control can be edited only from the Versions tab. Unlike other pages, the Content tab no longer appears in the Page Information panel. However, a link to the currently published version is included in the Page Information. If the page is not yet published, and the Status is set to “Disabled,” a link to the version (and revision of the version), is shown instead. No matter how many page versions and revisions of versions exist, only one appears in the Manage Content list.

|3.||Click to expand the CMS Versioning section.|
|4.||Set CMS Page Default Versioning to “Yes.”|
|5.||When complete, click the Save Config button.|
|1.||On the Admin menu, select CMS > Pages > Manage Content.|
|2.||In the list, click to open the page in edit mode.|
|3.||In the Page Information section, set Under Version Control to “Yes.”|
|4.||Click the Save and Continue Edit button.|
|5.||In the panel on the left, select Versions. Then, do the following:|
|a.||In the list, click to open the page in edit mode.|
|b.||In the Version Information section, set Access Level to one of the following:|
|c.||If your store Admin has multiple users, select the Owner of the page.|
|6.||To revise a published page, in the panel on the left, select Versions, and edit the content, as needed.|
|7.||To save the changes as a revision, but without publishing, click the Save Page button. The revision is added to the list.|
|8.||To publish the changes, click the Publish button.|
In the Page Information, the version number of the currently published revision is incremented to reflect the change.
Make sure that the Status of the page is set to “Published” so the page is visible in the store. If you need to return to Page Information, click the Back button a couple of times.
Under Version Control
The Under Version Control option is available for every CMS page. Options include:
Multiple revisions of the page can be created, published selectively, and restored as needed.
Only one version of the page is saved, and previous versions cannot be restored.
The name of the version is for internal reference, to help you keep track of different versions. For example, you might create a different version of the same page for each season.
Only the creator of the version can access the content.
Only Admin users with Publish Revision permission can access the content.
