This is another customization of ZWiki that has been lost in the move
from the old wiki software to the new. I will be working on adding
this feature soon.

This is actually a bug in the ZWiki package relating to the page
rating functions. (def setVotes missing). I have fixed the bug and you
should now be able to revert changes. I will submit a patch to the
ZWiki developers.

Just in case other people do not yet know how to do this, let me
review the procedure for doing page reversion here:

1) Start by reviewing the edit history of the page. Click on the
history link at the upper left corner of the page. It looks like this:

                                   last edited _6 minutes_  ago by page

Click on _6 minutes_

2) You will see a list like this:

Edit history for SandBox7

[Return to page]

[1] test eval Fra... 2640 2007/11/18 17:44:34 GMT-8

3) Click on the version number e.g. [7] to view a particular version
of a page. You will see something like this:

[Return to edit history]  [<<] 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 [>>]  [Revert to this version]
Editor: page
Time: 2007/11/27 06:11:25 GMT-8
Note: test revert

... changes that resulted in this page from the previous verison
... old page contents ...

4) To revert the page to the version shown click on [Revert to this version]

5) Click the [<<] [>>] or a version number e.g. 6, to show another
version of the page.

> Do I have to register to do so?  (might make sense)

No, right now you do not have to register. So far I have left the new
wiki site open to anonymous edits. But I am monitoring all changes to
the site and if/when spam becomes a problem I will implement access
restrictions such as this to control the spam. In general since this
is a wiki I *do* want to keep it as open as possible.

In an open wiki the ability for users to revert changes (especially
malicious changes) is very important. You should not hesitate to use
this function if you think an improper change has been made to a page
or in the case of a simple error.
