The Joomla Training Cohort has been launched!

Please send any feedback or bug reports to (opens new link)  

Unlike in word processing programs, once you save a Joomla article you can't use ctrl-z to go back to a previous version. However, if you enable "versions" in your website, you will be able to access previously saved versions of your Joomla articles - depending on how you have things setup.

This video also refers to xbAutosave for autosaving article changes in Joomla.

Be sure to check out our video about that too! ►    • Use xbAutoSave to Save Joomla Article...
