Hello Friends, Now Today we going to learn How to Decrease or Reduce posts revisions count reduction.

Now we learn about post revision or why we reduce?

What is posts revisions? It is a feature introduced in WordPress 2.6. Whenever you or WordPress saves a post or a page, it automatically creates a revision and stores in your WordPress database.

Why should we reduce their count? Each additional revision will slowly increase the size of your WordPress database. If you save a post or page multiple times, your number of revisions will greatly increase overtime.
