Managing Versions with eZ Publish

Friday, 17 Aug 2007

by Bergfrid Skaara  | 1 comment

The built-in eZ Publish versioning feature makes it possible to have several versions of a content object. It automatically keeps track of which content changes were made by which users at what time, and provides the option to revert content to a previous version. Every time you click either the Create or Edit button, the system automatically creates a new version of the content. It is always the new version that is edited; old versions remain untouched. In other words, the version mechanism follows a "copy-and-edit" approach rather than an "overwrite / replace" approach.

The Administration Interface is the advanced, back-end eZ Publish interface used to add and manage content and to perform many administration tasks, such as configuring user accounts. Everyday content creation and editing tasks can be performed via the the Administration Interface or the front-end Website Interface (which was introduced in the second article in this series). A good understanding of the main layout makes your work easier and more efficient.

The eZ Publish Online Editor (OE for short) is an extension that enables you to create formatted pages using an intuitive interface. With the OE, you can easily format text for your articles, product descriptions, weblogs and so on. The OE interface is very similar to the one found in word processors. There is no need to know XML or manipulate tags manually. As you click the buttons, the OE will automatically convert your instructions into valid eZ Publish XML code.
