    It doesn't have to be flash, but if we could get either
    1) a visual way to view 2 versions next to each other.
    2) an html comparison tool to view differences between 2 versions.

    I know this could be a lot to ask, but would be quite handing in being able to approve changes.

    Hi Byzza,

    It depends on whether you are talking about IPage objects or IContent items.

    What you can do:

     Create a button or two buttons. You should use RadWindow to preview to current version and staged version (previous version).


    previewLink.NavigateUrl = String.Format("javascript:ShowPrevious.PreviewVersion('{0}','{1}')", url, staged.Version.ToString());

    // here you pass the previous version of the item
    // and open it in a new window.
    PageHistory.prototype.ShowPrevious = function (url, version)
        var path = this.ApplicationPath + url;
        if (path.indexOf('?') < 0)
            path = path + "?";
            path = path + "&";
        path = path + this.EditModeKey + "=preview&" + this.PageVersionKey + "=" + version;
        previewWin = window.radopen(path, "preview");

    To get the version of an IStagedPage you could use  GetVersion(int version);
    For content items you should use VersioningBanager and IVersionItem

    IVersionItem ContentOld = versionManager.GetItem(content.ID, Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture, VarsionNumber)
