All contents are fully versioned in OpenCms. The history function of the Workplace enables you to track which changes were made when and by whom. All of the previous versions are archived and can be restored, enabling you to access older versions at any time.

Documents in the virtual file system of OpenCms can be compared with older versions using the history dialog.

It is easy to determine the changes in the document by using the visual comparison and restore an older document version if required. Changes in meta information (e.g. Title, Keywords) are listed as well as file attributes (e.g. file size, modification dates) to have a complete overview over all differences between the compared document versions.
