What’s on the PublishPress Roadmap?

In the last couple of months, we’ve launched PublishPress Revisions Pro, a huge update to PublishPress Revisions Free, and Multiple Authors 3.

Thanks to all of you who use the PublishPress plugins. Your support enables us to work on these cool, new releases.

This has been a busy year here at PublishPress with a big acquisition that has taken us some time to absorb. I wanted to take a moment to explain where we’re headed and what you can expect from PublishPress.

What’s coming to PublishPress?

Our goal is to create powerful publishing plugins for WordPress.

To reach that goal, we plan on having six plugins. Each plugin will have a Free and Pro version. Every Free version will be on WordPress.org and every Pro version will be behind the paywall for PublishPress members.

This image shows those six plugins:

The PublishPRess roadmap

Here’s a quick overview of those six plugins:

  1. PublishPress: Plan and schedule your content using calendar and notifications.
  2. Capability Manager Enhanced: Modify the default permissions in the WordPress core and other plugins.
  3. PressPermit: Advanced permissions way beyond what’s possible with the WordPress core.
  4. PublishPress Revisions: Submit and moderate WordPress revisions.
  5. Multiple Authors: Add as many authors as you want to any WordPress content.
  6. Checklists: Set requirements before content is published on your site.

Some plugins will have new names

We are planning a couple of other name changes. The goal is to create a product line up that’s consistent and easy to understand:

  • Capability Manager Enhanced is now PublishPress Capabilities.
  • Press Permit is now PublishPress Permissions.
  • Multiple Authors is now PublishPress Authors.

The timeline for this roadmap

We plan to have this line-up complete by the end of 2019.

So to reach our target we’ll need just one more release:

  • PublishPress Pro (this integrates the existing add-ons such as Slack and Reminders)

Once those releases are complete, our focus will be to improve these six plugins. Our 2020 roadmap is “Integrate and Improve”. All our plugins will integrate smoothly. You will have a consistent and trustworthy experience, no matter which PublishPress plugins you use.

I hope this helps you understand what you can expect from your PublishPress membership. We truly believe this roadmap will provide you with a suite of powerful publishing plugins for WordPress.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask in the comments or email us.

  • Indeed this has been a smashing year for PublishPress. Having tested the latest build of Revisionary Pro it’s shaping up to be the best editorial plugin for encouraging users to build onto existing content while making it a breeze for authors to see exactly what has changed. It’s like Wikipedia on steroids! Coupled with JReviews advanced ajax search/directories, geo-coding proximity view, relations to precise queries, and public event calendar to specific posts it’s going to produce some very unique results. I’ve spent hours testing and querying for workflow and revision software for WordPress. Can say with confidence that PublishPress is the best.

  • Grat work. Great ideas. 2 missing plugins or solutions:

    1. White Label
    This would allow the plugin to be used in commercial and professional solutions.

    2. Social Media
    Publishing without promotion in social media is out of line today.
