Add Any Rules You Want to the Content Checklist

The slogan of PublishPress is “Professional Publishing Tools for WordPress”.

The PublishPress Checklists plugin is a really useful add-on for any team that cares about their WordPress content.

With PublishPress Checklists, you can ask your writers to follow some default rules. For example, you can make your writers use a certain number of words, add a featured image, or use the excerpt box.

When your writers login, they won't automatically see the “Publish” button. This image below shows what they will see:
