Limit the number of post revisions (recommended under 10)

This tip appears in the control panel when the number of revisions is set to unlimited or it is more than 10.

How to resolve this tip

  • To completely disable the revisions, you can add define('WP_POST_REVISIONS', false); in your wp-config.php file. It’s not recommended to do this.
  • To limit the revisions, you can add define('WP_POST_REVISIONS', 5); in your wp-config.php file. Recommended number is under 10.

WP-Sweep plugin is a handy plugin, to clear the post revisions.
