Versioning

I know that Orchard supports versioning. But I see nothing in the Dashboard UI to actually manage versions. I tried installing the Version Manager module. But it broke the Content Picker Search.

Am I missing something here?

You're not missing anything. Unfortunately currently there is no UI for getting the versions apart from using Version Manager.

I do wonder if that should be in 1.9

Don't wonder anymore, just implement the audit trail module.

OWIN first.

Actually, this seems to work: Rijkshuisstijl.VersionManager.

Although, it seems it bogs things down a bit. Everything's been a bit slower ever since I installed the module. The only other issue is inside the version manager page there's a link for description. It gets a 404. I assume it's meant to be a place to put a description of that particular version.

I'm going to keep using this for now to see if it'll work out for me.

Thanks for the responses.

edit: Oh and the "recycle bin" tab it adds to the content page NEVER comes back for me.

Without being able to re-create past versions of documents at will, Orchard will never really be accepted into large organizations. We are in a quasi-state agency, and we have auditors who require we be able to reproduce past versions of pages.

Without an ability to re-create a version of a page from say, 2 years ago, we cannot use Orchard, as we can't meet audit requirements.

@silverfox: accessing and restoring previous versions is possible (there are two modules on the Gallery, called somewhat like "version manager"), just not OOTDB at the moment. But if you take a look at the source you'll see that there actually is work going on to add full audit trail capabilities.

I think Owin,4.5.2, and fixing the NH problem should have higher priorities
