  1. I noticed on few of my blogs, that have the latest wordpress version (3.2.1) that this method doesn’t work. The database is full with revisions, even this code is in the wp-config file.
    To bad, because as you say it, this revision thing is nonsense :((((

  2. Great tip. I think you can also limit the number of revisions to something like 10. So you wont have 100 extra copies doing nothing, but you still have some of the autosave features available. Just an idea.
