Hello again :)

I am faced with the task of implementing some sort of versioning, or approval system in editing the content/section-control content - within pages.

There is a similar request in the post
http://mywebpagesstarterkit.codeplex.com/Thread/View.aspx?ThreadId=7770

Has anyone implemented any kind of versioning in any way?

My guess is, it really just needs an addition to the Persistable<T> class - Before saving data, copy the existing data to a "backup file".  Have a page somewhere that allows traversal of backup files, and restoring old files back to "current" file.

Bit of a hack, and could lead to a fair amount of files knocking about in your App_Data folder, but if you're not looking for anything more complex than the above, it might be a quick way of getting it in...

HTH,

Jim.
