Limit Post Revisions Network Option

A Multisite Network plugin to add Network->Settings to limit, or disable, the number of post revisions and set the post autosave interval.


I based the default plugin values for the constants AUTOSAVE_INTERVAL and WP_POST_REVISIONS on the discussion here:

    I’ve just activated this Limit Post Revisions Network Option in my site – Suffusion 3.6.6 but the save interval has not changed; still the same – annoying, disturbing and delaying my work.

    May I know where is this 2.Go to SuperAdmin->Options to set “Post Revisions” and “Autosave Interval” located, I just couldn’t find it.

      SuperAdmin->Options is part of the Network administration menus of WordPress Multisite(WP3.x). If you have not installed and activated the Network multisite version of WordPress, this plugin is not going to be of use to you.

    Hey dsader, I got the same problem… I activated the plugin network wide, but it doesn’t appear in any menu (not in network, not in the main site). When deactivating to re-activate it on a per site base, the plugin isn’t visible in the list of inactive plugins at the main site.

    I run the latest WP, activated multisite with subsites in directories.
    I hope this info may be helpful to you. GL!

      Upload ds_wp3_limit_revisions.php to the /wp-content/mu-plugins/ directory

      Then look at

      Scroll the list of Network settings, “Limit Post Revisions” should be there.

      The plugin does not add a new network menu, merely a new section to your existing Network->Settings page.

      (SuperAdmin->Options refers to older WPMU versions)

  3. I can’t find the Network Settings. I’m looking at Settings but I don’t see any post revisions.

    Where can I find /wp-admin/network/settings.php in the Dashboard? I’m lost.
