Explanations and instructions of all things Writing.Com.
In the Portfolio tab of your port, clicking on the "Tools" link in the upper left-hand corner will expand a menu with several options, one of which is "Item Edit Logs." Clicking on the link will take you to a new page that contains a chronological history of all the changes made to items in your port. This log contains all item edits you've created (including edits, creating items, deleting items, moving items to another folder, and sending items to the recycle bin). The edits descend from newest to oldest, with fifty entries per page.
The table is broken down into four columns per entry:
Item ID / Title: The current title of the edited item. Beneath the title is a link to open a new window with all the edits for that particular item.
Action: What changes were made to the item: Item Edited, Folder Changed, Moved to Recycle Bin, Item Deleted, Item Created, Full Screen Edited, etc.
Date/Time: The time and date (according to the WdC server) that the item was modified.
Links: Click on "View Entry" to see the overview details of the item and the edit.
You have the option of sorting the table by Newest First or Newest Last, as well as Search, to help you locate a particular edit. At the bottom of the page, you can also directly enter an Item ID number into the "View edit logs by Item ID" field to pull up a specific item's edit logs.
There are two important things to note about this Item Edit Log:
Item Edit Logs became accessible for members on July 6th, 2008. You will not be able to access or look up edit logs prior to that date.
Item Edit Logs do not show the actual changes made to an item. However, Premium+ Members can pull up previously saved versions of their documents through the Revision Control System (RCS). For more information on RCS, please see: "Revision History" .1
