We store the last 100 revisions for each post on your blog.

Revisions allow you to review changes you’ve made and restore to an earlier version if necessary.   This is a handy if you accidentally delete post content or decide you prefer an older post version.

A revision is saved each time you click Save Draft or Update.

You use the Revision module to view your revisions.
