PublishPress Checklists

PublishPress Checklists allows you to control the quality of your WordPress content

PublishPress Checklists

When you use PublishPress Checklists, you can define tasks that authors must complete before content is published. Tasks can either be recommended or required. As writers complete each item, the red text automatically turns to green.

For example, you can make sure your posts have a minimum or maximum number of words. Or you can ensure that all your posts have a featured image.

The main features of PublishPress Checklists

Add all your authors in WordPress

Create your own checklists

Next to every post and page, writers see a checklist box, showing the tasks they need to complete. As writers complete each item, the red text automatically turns to green when it is complete.

Custom checklist rules

In addition to the default rules, PublishPress Checklists allows you to create your own rules. Click “Add custom item” to create as many rules as you want.

Configure your requirements

Each item on the checklist can be configured to meet your site’s needs. You can decide whether items are recommended, required or ignored. You can also set maximum and minimum values.

Feedback before publishing

If the writers don’t complete all the requirements, PublishPress Checklists will show them a message explaining what they need to do.

WooCommerce Products Checklist

This feature in Checklists Pro allows you to create requirements for WooCommerce products. You can set over 20 requirements that must be met before a product is published.

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
