Memento for Wordpress


A Wordpress plugin to enable the Memento framework for time-based access

Latest release: 0.0.1-beta

What is Memento?

Memento is a HTTP-based framework that "bridges the past and present web." Sites that support it — like the Internet Archive and the Library of Congress — accept time-based web requests and return past versions of archived URLs.

What does this plugin do?

Rather than rely on patchy third-party services for preservation, sites with this plugin installed instantly become their own living, digital archive.

Past revisions of posts, inaccessible to users of a typical Wordpress site, are indexed and available for review.

How do I try it?

Download the source code from the links on this page and install it manually on your Wordpress site using the recommended method.

This software is a beta release and in active development. Please report issues, share your thoughts and contribute code patches via its repository on GitHub.
