@athlios,

There is no option for cleaning revisions. However you should not worry, it's already designed to keep minimal revisions in database. It stores maximum 3 revisions and delete old revisions after each new saving. It doesn't save revisions if there is no any change in content, so if you leave the editor for one hour it'll not save new revisions. Also after submitting the new post it deletes all revisions related to that post.

In other words, wpForo post revision system works maximum clean and doesn't keep revisions for long time, you can be 100% sure, this is not an unintuitive piece of code. This is a very smart solution.

@chris I was more asking cause I don't like much the wall of text underneath the thread saying that the thread has been modified in 10 separate rows like this:

This topic was modified 3 years ago 16 times by Athlios
This topic was modified 2 years ago 38 times by Athlios
This topic was modified 1 year ago 23 times by Athlios
This topic was modified 10 months ago 6 times by Athlios
This topic was modified 7 months ago 5 times by Athlios
This topic was modified 6 months ago by Athlios
This topic was modified 5 months ago 5 times by Athlios
This topic was modified 4 months ago by Athlios
This topic was modified 3 months ago by Athlios
This topic was modified 3 weeks ago by Athlios
This topic was modified 2 weeks ago by Athlios
This topic was modified 1 week ago by Athlios
 
It would make more sense to have 1 row saying: This topic was modified x times by Athlios
Or two lines like that:
This topic was modified (last modification time) by Athlios
This topic was modified x times by Athlios
To cover both the last revision and the times in two lines instead of 200 lines.

@athlios This is not "revisions", this is a different thing. Tune it forum/Topics/Posts settings

 

Limit the post edit logging information "This post was modified 2 hours ago by John"

Set this option value 0 if you want to disable limiting
