Create a separate history page for the flow board description area
Open, MediumPublic

Description

It would be useful to be able to access the history of just the header-area, by itself, just as we can for a single topic.

This is especially important for being able to revert vandalism efficiently, or just to find the original/older wording. Currently it's awkward to page through the old diffs (alternately clicking "Version by ..." and "differences from ...")


[Note: this bug was originally to do with just making history accessible, which was done by adding the revisions into the Board history page. I think this re-purposing is more along the lines of what was wanted.]

Re-opening, because whilst it's now possible to find the entries for the header area, they're scattered amongst the other topics' histories.

(I've also just filed T90038: Add "older edit/newer edit" links to diff pages which will partially help.)

I agree that we should make this easier. Let's talk about it in a design meeting...

I just ran into this when a user first wrote their new topic into the description and then blanked it. Finding the previous description to restore it was unnecessarily painful.
