Restore Author & Revision Boxes for Post Editing after WP3.1 Upgrade

Funny thing happened after I upgraded to WP 3.1. I suddenly could not find the ‘revisions’ box when editing a post. Later I missed other boxes for author name and custom fields. After several Google searches, forum lookup and emails to friends I found the very simple solution.

This screencast is very short but so helpful if you lost any boxes such as:

  • Excerpts
  • Trackbacks
  • Custom Fields
  • Discussion
  • Slug
  • Author
  • Revisions

I know you’re used to selecting some of those options on individual posts, overriding global settings. Hopefully like me, you’ll now remember the Screen Options menu!

Another Quick Tip: The screencast also shows you how to collapse the WP dashboard sidebar.
