  1. hi, lester
    the code within your post seems beautiful, how can I do that? use a code highlight plugins or manually edit css file?

  2. Thanks a ton for your help.
    I went mad afer upgrading to WP 2.6.
    I added define (‘WP_POST_REVISIONS’, 0); in my WP-CONFIG file but I am still seeing the autosave functionality.
    Is there any other trick ?

  3. Lester Chan,

    Thanks but how do I know if my posts have any custom meta data or not? E.g. what other data is being stored in the ofter tables?



  4. Dear Lester,

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH! I fullfill e-shop (of course without database backup on) and almost loose a 1 week work with “smart” revision function.

    THANK YOU AGAIN! Jurij Cvikl (Linkedln)

  5. THANK YOU..I mean it..
    I just wonder why the wp core devs did not test this better. meta values are a core feature and the issue should have been plain to them before the release. Upgrading wp every heartbeat already is a pain (I have a heavily modified template and many customized features), but encountering these issues really makes me regret upgrading.
    Again, thank you

  6. Wow very useful post. I was not even aware of the fact that post revisions are taking up huge db space. I iwsh we had a plugin for it rather than modify the config file which even though easy requires more manual work.

  7. A lifesaver! My problem was a little more serious than most in that I’m using an ECOMMERCE plugin for my client’s site that kept on attaching itself to a revision of the main products page. This fixed it. Thanks for a very helpful post.

  8. Remember guys – you can do this with the newly updated for WordPress 2.7 WP-CMS Post Control plugin over at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-cms-post-control/

    Whilst WordPress 2.7 gives some interface control to the write post and page panels, this plugin gives you COMPLETE control, also allowing you to turn off post revisions, auto save and even force the uploader back to the old browser one instead of Flash (this solves a-lot of problems for people).

    This update also covers all the new WordPress 2.7 interface features – for instance being able to hide the favorites dropdown in the header of the admin panel.
