The remaining plugins are moving to

Just over two months ago, we acquired the Press Permit plugins. Just importantly, Kevin (the original developer of the plugins) came to work with us.

Two plugins have already moved here to PublishPress: Revisionary and Capability Manager Enhanced.

The next step is to move the remaining Press Permit plugins over here to

What new plugins are coming to PublishPress?

Two plugins are arriving: Press Permit Core and Press Permit Pro.

Press Permit Core is available on Press Permit Pro will be available to members.

Press Permit Pro is one plugin. Previously Press Permit had multiple add-ons, but we're now combining them into a single release.

Press Permit Pro will have the combined features of all these add-ons:

  • Circles: Control access to content not authored by other group members.
  • Collaborative Editing: Set publishing permissions in almost any way you can imagine!
  • Compatibility: Integrate your customized content permissions with bbPress, Yoast SEO and many other plugins.
  • Content Teaser: Replace non-readable content with your own custom message.
  • Custom Post Statuses: Create your own custom statuses for privacy. You can also create different statuses for moderation workflows.
  • File URL Filter: Control access to files, based on whether the user has access to content that contains those files.
  • WPML: Control access to content based on language.
  • BuddyPress Role Groups: Control access to content based on BuddyPress groups.
  • Membership: Automatically expire user permissions after a certain time.

Wait … don't you already have a permission plugin here at PublishPress?

Yes. In fact, Capability Manager Enhanced has over 80,000 users. So what's different about Press Permit?

  • Capability Manager Enhanced allows you to customize all the default WordPress permissions.
  • Press Permit allows you to customize advanced permissions that go beyond the scope of the WordPress core.

What does this mean for existing Press Permit users?

We hope that the vast majority of the coming changes will be positive for everyone currently using Press Permit.

Some things to be aware of:

  • will redirect to This will happen at the end of May.
  • Press Permit users will need a new license key from here at
  • We'll honor all current subscriptions for Press Permit users. So if you're currently paying $55 per year, you'll be grandfathered in at that price.
  • Our main focus will be on making Press Permit easier to use. There are a ton of wonderful features already in the plugin, but they're hard to discover. Look for a lot of user-interface changes to help you use those features.

  1. Hi ! The “Association Nationale La Table de Cana” holds a license of Press Permit Pro (single site) at renewal price of US$ 25.00. We use the following plugins in our Extranet (under WordPress) : Press Permit Core, PP File URL Filter, PP Custom Post Statuses, PP Compatibility Pack, PP Collaborative Editing Pack, PP BuddyPress Role Groups, and Capability Manager Enhanced. Our key expires on 2020-02-11.
    What should we do from now to ensure our service continuity ?
    Thanks in advance for your answer.
    Best regards.

  2. Thanks Philippe. We really appreciate you using Press Permit Pro.

    When the move to is complete, we’ll be in touch with those details. You’ll be able to continue your membership at that same price.

  3. I’m a long-time user of Press Permit Pro, and love the detailed control that it gives over permissions. I’ve never used PublishPress, but I like the look of the process control that it offers. Are you planning to eventually merge the two?

    1. Hi Paul

      Thanks for the positive feedback and for using Press Permit. We’ll integrate the two plugins, but they won’t replace each. PublishPress is focused on the calendar and notifications, whereas Press Permit is focused on permissions.

  4. Ok, thank you, Steve! I look forward to seeing things develop, and I’d love to see some kind of package deal in the future for both products.
