I have just starting using Drupal today and am going through a tutorial for Drupal 7 (I am using Drupal 8). I have made several revisions; however, the Revision tab does not appear when in the Edit area. I am logged in as Admin and have permissions for everything. After several revisions I got fed up and decided to delete the node (content) by clicking the Delete tab - to my surprise, the Revisions tab then appeared to the right of the Delete tab. I cannot find any documentation on the Revisions tab only appearing once the delete button has been clicked. Is this standard behaviour or is there something that I am missing?

This is a known bug, and is being fixed: https://www.drupal.org/node/2592325. The fix is already present, it just needs test coverage now.

  • Amazing - it's now working! Well found. Edit: it works on previously revised and faux deleted node sections only. – monster Oct 15 '15 at 14:39
  • If there's something not yet fully working with that patch, please leave a comment on that issue. Thanks! – Wim Leers Oct 19 '15 at 13:49

That sounds like a caching problem, possibly the revisions tab is missing cacheability information. It's dynamically shown based on whether there are revisions or not. Which means it needs to be invalidated in case the node changes.

You should open a bug report for core.
