    Thanks a lot for your very precious plugin but i don’t understand if it’s necessary to push “reset” button manually or if the delete process is executed in background every day ?
    Thanks a lot for your help and for your wonderful plugin.
    Best Regards

    @rasbaille the delete process run in backround when you write a new post. than the most webmaster have not a cronjob-function in the webspace packet. and the reset button load the default settings.

    This plugin is better than all others like it as I have a huge number of very long articles with many revisions each, and this is the simplest, reliable approach to dealing with that type of situation (especially when the author makes revisions often). Thank you!

    Nice work. Simple steps for the English folks out there:
    1/ once you activate the plugin, find and click on “revision delete!” below Settings
    2/ type in the number of days if your default is something other than 7.
    3/ use the check box if you want to keep the last revision.
    4/ click the “Update revision delete!” button.
    5/ click “Reset” (it’s more of an “Apply” button)
    6/ you must visit each post to apply Revision Delete! ‘s magic.
    7/ no need to update the post.
