Is it possible to turn off versions / versioning for a subclass of Page / SiteTree while preserving the ability to use Page Commenting? I often have sites where the admin never uses the versioning feature, yet the database grows beyond the webhost limits.

Or perhaps as a feature request; limit versions to say the last X for each page, defaulting to 5?

Rather than disabling it totally you could have a daily task which deletes the older versions (say older than 2 days)

sure .. that can be done. It's a little more work & I'd like to see that built into core as part of a GC routine -- but; does removing the "versioned" extension sound like a sane workaround, or is it integral to the system?

Thanks!

Well haven't ever tried removing the extension but I would think the CMS relies heavy on versioned. Since that not only handles version history it also handles draft vs live staging and throughout the publishing stages.
