version tags overview

When you "turn on admin", you'll see a sub menu called "Version tags" in this area, you will see a list of open "version tags" in this context, an open "version tag" is simply a name given to a LOG of changes made under that version tag.

When a Version tag is initially created, they are given a default "name" generated by the date and person creating the version tag. This does not reflect when the actual changes were made, you need to view the log of changes to see what was changed and when.

To view the log of all the changes you made under a particular "version tag", go to (you get here by going to "admin console->version tags") Here, you can click on each version tag to see what changes occurred under each.

You can also see the log of changes to a commited version tag by going to (you get here by going to "admin console"->"version tags"->"manage commited versions").

Once you open a version tag, you can login and off time and time again and continue working under that version tag by clicking on the name of the version tag (an asterisk will appear).
