Different Statuses for Different Post Types

You are here:

It is possible to have different statuses for different WordPress post types.

The benefit of this approach is that allows you have different workflows for each post type.

Here is how to create different statuses per post type …

  • To get started, install these two plugins: PublishPress and PublishPress Permissions Pro. You will need the Pro version of Permissions as that has advanced features for statuses.
  • Go to “Permissions”, then “Post Statuses”.
  • Click the “Edit” link under any status:
Edit Post Status
Edit Post Status
  • You can scroll down and make your selection in the “Post Types” area. In the image below, the “In Progress” status will only be available on Pages.
Status For One Post Type

This status will now be available in the “Post Status” dropdown when you create new pages:
