This week, we finished moving the PressPermit plugin over to PublishPress.com. This is the final stage of our acquisition of several plugins from PressPermit.com.
If you’ve never used PressPermit before, here’s what you need to know: it’s the most flexible and advanced permissions plugin for WordPress.
Version 1.20.7 of PublishPress is available today, along with updates for the PublishPress add-ons.
Here’s an overview of this week’s releases:
One PublishPress user asked us if it was possible to allow a small group of people to edit a single WordPress post.
They wanted a flexible solution because that group of people may be different for each post.
By default, all the files and images you upload to WordPress are publicly available.
This is great news for most sites. The goal of most sites is to create popular content that is viewed by as many readers as possible.
One PublishPress user asked if they could create a single page for each user. They wanted to create staff profile pages where each user could update their own page.
Quite a few PublishPress users have mixed content on their WordPress site. Some of the content is publicly visible and some of the content is only for logged-in users.
One user asked us if it’s possible to have mixed content together in one post. They wanted to have a public teaser followed by private content.
One PublishPress user asked us if they could block users from using one category when they write Posts.
The answer is “Yes, with the PressPermit Pro plugin.”.
One PublishPress user came to us with this question:
“I want authors to log in to the WordPress admin area and only see their posts. I don’t want them to see the posts from other authors. Is this possible?”
Over the last few days, a couple of people have written to us and asked this question:
“Is there a plugin that allows me to restrict users to only be able to post to certain categories?”
The answer is “Yes”. You can do this with the PressPermit Pro plugin.
Over the last week, we’ve put out a couple of PublishPress releases, moving up to version 1.20.4.
These releases had a series of small improvements and bug-fixes. Let me give you an overview of what’s changed …
