AxCMS.net supports versioning. Versions are related to pages and documents. There are two types of versions in AxCMS.net - major and minor versions. Major versions are generated each time a document or a page is being published and are represented with whole numbers (1.0, 2.0, 3.0, etc.). Minor versions are generated each time a document or page is being modified without publishing. Minor versions are represented with the small numbers following the whole number of the major version (1.1, 1.3, 2.9, etc.).
To view and edit versions, go to Admin -> Versions.
You will be redirected to the versions overview page where all the versions of pages and documents are displayed in a list. In the filter section you can search for a particular version of a page or object using the filter parameters. By unselecting the only major checkbox, you can see all the versions of the pages and documents (major and minor) with comments explaining each change that was made to the page or document.
To view a certain version, click the Edit icon near the corresponding version name in the list. The detail page of the version opens.
