Earlier this year, we relaunched the Revisionary plugin as part of our merger with PressPermit.
After a summer of hard work, we're getting close to launching some major improvements to Revisionary, including a new version: Revisionary Pro.
We're also moving more revision management to the frontend of WordPress. This will allow support for Classic Editor, Gutenberg and pagebuilders.
How does this work in practice? When you view a revision, you'll see a bar across the top of the site. This green color shows that you're looking at a revision that's waiting for approval:
The bar will change colors to indicate different situations. For example, this next color is for revisions that are no longer live:
This purple color shows that you're looking at a revision that's currently live on the site.
This grey color indicates that you're looking at a revision that's already scheduled to go live:
Moving to the frontend will also allow us to add better support for pagebuilders. For example, we hope that support for Beaver Builder will be one of the first features in Revisionary Pro. Check out this preview with the added “Submit Revision” button:
When will these new features arrive?
We don't have a fixed ETA, but we're getting close, as you can see from the screenshots above.
Revisionary Free will focus on the very best experience for the WordPress core.
Revisionary Pro will add support for non-core plugins such as ACF (Advanced Custom Fields) and Beaver Builder.
