Description

Can we add some feature requests to WordPress core that is to preview the different revisions for the posts exactly as the preview while creating the new post?

This would help editors to review the revision full of content instead just checking normally content in revisions tab. With new Gutenberg editor, revisions are hard to check because blocks are not parsed while checking the revisions.

We can have a preview button over the revisions page for which we are checking the revisions and can be previewed as whole content with all parsed blocks. This can help editor to review perfectly and restore the revision if needed.

Current Revisions page have this kind of markup,

Need this type of markup with a preview button, so on click of that button, user can view the revision with that content.

Hi @hbhalodia,

Thanks for opening this ticket. I like your idea of adding a preview capability to the revisions screen. I guess your proposed button would open a new tab similar to Gutenberg's preview button? That seems like a reasonable start but a bit difficult to use. I wonder if we could actually show an iframe with the preview directly on the page? Maybe instead of a button, the preview would be a tab.
