Version Control

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.

    Page Information

    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.

    Version Information

    Version Label

    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.

    Access Level

    Establishes the permissions necessary to access the version. Options include:


    Only the creator of the version can access the content.


    Only Admin users with Publish Revision permission can access the content.


    All Admin users with CMS Page permission can access the content.


    By default, the Admin user who created the page. If the access level is set to “Private,” and the owner is changed, the previous owner will no longer have access to the content.
