Comparing a revision to live version

You can compare a revision to the currently live version.

To compare a revision with the live version:

  1. Search for and open the asset in the content edit page.
  2. In the Revisions widget, select the revision against which you want to compare the live version. Brightspot loads the revision in the content edit form.
  3. Under the editorial toolbar, click Compare to Live.

You can also click more_horiz next to the revision you want to compare to the live version and select Compare to Live.

Brightspot displays the differences between the revision you are viewing and the live version.

For enhancements embedded into the rich-text editor that have changes, you can hover over the enhancement and click info that appears in the lower right corner of the enhancement.

This opens the comparison window for that enhancement, and shows you what has changed in the two versions.
