Many sites that I know just host documents or link to external web pages. Once the entry is added, the entry does not change ever. In such case there is no use for a version tab or a version string.
Please add a category option to disable versioning.This would disable:
- Version string
- Version tab
- Post Resource Update tab / function / sidebar link
- Last version sidebar block
- Last update date in information block in sidebar.
I am not 100% sure if this request should be considered a suggestion or a bug, because showing the version tab and version for entries that have no versioning, results in confusing users with mandatory functions that they can do nothing with. Some users will just give up in frustration.
