WordPress automatically saves back up copies or versions of your page or post in a panel called Revisions. Each time you click Save Draft or Update, a revision is saved. UCI Sites stores the last 25 revisions of each page or post allowing you to look back at recent changes and revert back to an earlier version if necessary.


If you have saved more than one version of your post or page, WordPress will display a Revisions area in the Publish pane (Classic Editor) or the Document tab (Gutenberg).
