Questions answered by this recipe

I made changes to the page code, but the page history shows a table and not the code. How can I see what I typed into the edit form in the page history?

I changed some pictures and my page history shows the pictures. How can I get it to show the filenames?

How can I make the history show changes to the page source code?


This recipe disables markup in the page history source code that is displayed. PMWiki will display a table or pictures instead of the page code that someone changed. This will make PMWiki display the page code (some people call it the page markup, or page source code).


Copy PagehistorySource.phpΔ to your cookbook directory.
