One of the best things about WordPress is how easy it is to make sweeping changes to a website in just a few minutes. But with no easy way to revert a website to a previous state, you can lose a lot of work very quickly if you aren’t careful.
VersionPress brings the power of Git to WordPress so you can make as many changes as your want with the knowledge that undoing any change is just a click away.
If you’ve ever created even a simple website from scratch you can better appreciate the power of WordPress. With WordPress, a few clicks is all it takes to completely change the appearance of your site by installing a new theme, new features can be added in an instant by installing a plugin, website users can be managed with ease, and all of this can be done without typing a single line of code.
The only problem is that most actions in WordPress are irreversible. With the exception of page and post revisions, which are tracked pretty well by the WordPress core, if you want to undo any changes you have to recreate them. Even worse, unless you’re a WordPress developer, there’s a good chance that a lot of the changes you make to your site are made to your live site, meaning that if something goes wrong the consequences could be severe.
VersionPress is a project that promises to change all of that. By bringing the power of Git version management to WordPress websites, VersionPress adds an undo button to every single change made to a WordPress website. Make a change you regret and undoing that change is just a button click away.
