How to rollback to previous version of your draft article

Updated over a week ago

The revision feature allows you to review old versions of your draft and revert to them when necessary.

We take a snapshot of your draft every 45 seconds if there has been an addition or deletion of at least 25 characters.

Here is how to use the revision history on Hashnode:

Step 1: Log in to your Hashnode account.

Step 2: Click on the "Write" button at the top of your feed.
