Hey guys,
Does BW support entry versioning or does native EE versioning work?

    Hi Steven,

    I hope you are well.

    BWF doesn't support entry versioning I'm afraid. While you have an unpublished entry it works exactly like a regular EE Entry so you can use the native versioning. But once its published it becomes a BWF Draft and there can only be a single version of this.

    Sorry if this isn't great news.

    Best wishes,

    It's really for unpublished stuff so it could work.

    Hi Malcolm-
    I was just browsing this thread and was unclear on what you were saying about entry versioning. When I look at my current BWF enabled site and look at an entry, I can see the various "Published" entries in the "Revisions" tab along with the user, date and option to restore. Are you saying that it would actually restore those previous Published revisions?

    Hi James,

    The official line is that BWF doesn't support native revisions. If you have an unpublished entry you should be able to revert to a previous revision, but we cannot guarantee this. Sorry this is a bit vague but we haven't run exhaustive tests.

    The best advice I can give is to test it yourself.

    Best wishes,
