PublishPress Testimonials

When I need to look for a new plugin that would give me specific publishing tools as well as a solid editorial calendar, I landed on PublishPress. As someone who pushes out tons of content, yet doesn’t have a large team, it brings every aspect to the table that I need in order to keep my workflow running smoothly. Highly recommend, especially with the add-ons.


Wow, I’m not used to putting 5 stars to a review but here it is well deserved! The plugin does exactly what it says. It does it well without gadget or useless features. It has no impact on the site’s speed and it is incredibly useful for multi-authored sites. And the support is just wonderful…
