Here's how you can revert your additions to a page:

  • Go to that page's edit history by clicking on the View history button at the upper right.
  • You will see a list of previous edits. Select the edit prior to yours, which will bring up that previous version of the page.

  • Save this version. Your edits have been reverted!

Be careful, however - if your edit contained copyright violations or plagiarism, you should make sure to notify an administrator or your Content Expert so that edit can be deleted.
