Edit June 16, 2009 – The plugins are WordPress 2.9 compatible.
I’ve already reported about WordPress revisions and autosave problem yesterday.
I was thinking about a quite different solution and then I found that it’s really trivial to prepare three WordPress plugins that can disable Revisions, Autosave or both of them at the same time.
disable-autosave.zip (Right Click – Save As) – Disable Autosave function
disable-revisions.zip (Right Click – Save As) – Disable Revisions function
disable-revisions-and-autosave.zip (Right Click – Save As) – Disable Revisions and Autosave at the same time.
Using a plugin is far faster and easier than editing the wp-config file; plus everyone can Activate or Deactive them whenever is needed.
I’ve got very limited time to test them, but I’m actually using the “disable-revisions-and-autosave” on this blog and as far as I can say it works flawlessly.
Every comment or hint is very welcome!
The disabling Autosave plugin was already online yesterday, but I’ve slightly modify it to report the original code author.
EDIT 11 Sept. 2008
Some comments are not visible (removed) due to DB problems.
During the last weeks an hacking attempt led against the ISP on which Exper Chaotic Flow is currently running forced me to switch to a temporary server which trashed the last automatic DB recovers.
I’ll updated this post’s comments by hand as soon as I’ll have some spare time; some of the vanished ones are still there on my local backup.
Sorry for the setback.
