I remember when someone edited my post, I could see what edits were made and if necessary roll them back. Now, it seems to be gone. Did it move somewhere else?

When not using in-line editing, I see it on the edit page:

enter image description here

Note the box in the top-right corner which states if you select an older revision and save, it rolls back the post.

  • I do not get that. I click on the Edit link under my post and do not get the Rev dropdown. It's strange.

  • Ahhh, I see what you mean by in-line editing. I have to click the link next to "edited". Thanks.

  • I'm sure there's a way to do it with in-line editing, but I don't have actual edit permissions on any site, so I can't check.

  • @Troyen I've got edit permissions, but I can't see a dropdown (or any other way of doing it) using inline editing (i.e. left clicking on the "edit" button). I can see that dropdown if I right click on the "edit" button and click "open link in new tab". The other way is to click "rollback" in the revisions page (as noted by dotnetN00b).

As you and cypher stated in a comment to Troyen’s answer, there are links labeled “edit” and “rollback” in the revisions page.

Another (hack-ish) way to reach the non-inline edit page is by opening the “Edit” link in a new tab or window.
