Versionpress — Worth looking into!

If you’re a professional WordPress Site developer this plugin (yeah this monster is actually a plugin) is a  must look.

So what is it? It’s version control for WordPress…. on steroids!

“VersionPress tracks all the actions in a WordPress site and simply offers an undo button for them. For example, if a plugin update failed, the undo button reverts its files and any database changes the plugin might have made.

Merge is the key word here – VersionPress handles situations where your live site had new content in the meantime seamlessly.”

It has a few neat features;

An Illustrated Guide to Git on Windows

This document is designed to show that using git on Windows is not a difficult process. In this guide, I will create a repository, make several commits, create a branch, merge a branch, search the commit history, push to a remote server, and pull from a remote server. The majority of this will be done using GUI tools.

Although this guide is targeted for use on Windows, the git gui tool works the same on all platforms. Because of this, git users on other platforms may find useful information here as well.
