Decide which users can publish content
By default, most WordPress users have access to the “Publish” button.
With PublishPress Permissions, you can decide who gets access to the “Publish” button.
Look at the image shows that the “Publish” button is hidden for this user. They can only send content to the “Pitch”, “In Progress” or “Draft” statuses.
This image below shows how much control you have over your users’ permissions. If you haven’t used PublishPress before, you should know that it allows you to create your own publishing statuses and user groups. So, in short, you can customize your publishing statuses, user groups, and the permissions that link them together.
With PublishPress and the Permissions add-on you have a really powerful publishing system!
Decide who can access PublishPress features
The Permissions plugin allows you to control who can access key areas of PublishPress. These permissions include:
- Manage permissions (which means access to this screen we’re looking at now)
- View the calendar
- View the content overview
- Edit metadata
- Move content to a different status
Control who can edit Metadata
Metadata is the extra information that you can add to the right-sidebar, next to your posts. For example, the editor of a site can set a First Draft Date and enter Assignment details.
However, you wouldn’t want your content creators to edit this metadata. After all, if they’re running behind schedule they could move their deadlines and change their assignments! So, with the PublishPress Permissions add-on, you can decide which user groups can edit metadata.
