By default, WooCommerce products don’t show the default “Authors” feature in WordPress.
The WooCommerce developers made this choice for a good reason. Posts, Pages and other content normally need an “author”. However, eCommerce products might have a “Vendor” or “Manufacturer”, but not often an “author”.
By default, WordPress users in the admin area can see all the Posts on the site, regardless of whether they are the author.
This is not a problem for many sites. After all, most Posts on most sites are publicly available – there’s no need to hide them. However, in some situations, site owners don’t want authors to see the Posts that other users are working on.
PublishPress is based on another WordPress plugin called Edit Flow.
Edit Flow was a wonderful plugin, but had some noticeable restrictions. One key limitation was that it only supported Posts.

The Content Checklist add-on for PublishPress is perfect for anyone that wants to create a consistent experience with their WordPress content. If you publish a lot of content, it can be hard to make sure every post and page has the features you need.
Using the Content Checklist, you can define tasks that must be completed before authors are able to publish content. Here’s what a typical set of requirements might look like.

The goal of PublishPress is to help WordPress teams create great content. Earlier this year, we made an acquisition that helps us meet that goal. We acquired Bylines, a multi-author plugin for WordPress. Bylines allows you to assign multiple authors to a post and easily publish articles from guest authors.
I have some important news for anyone who uses the Bylines plugin, or PublishPress.
