Getting Started With Editorial Comments in PublishPress

One very important feature in PublishPress is editorial comments. You can leave comments under each post you write. This is a private conversation between writers and editors and allows you to discuss what needs to be changed before publication.

  • Look below the post's writing area and you'll see “Editorial Comments”.
The Editorial Comments metabox
  • Click the “Add an editorial comment” button.
  • You will now be able to leave a comment. Click “Add Comment” when you're done.
Writing an Editorial Comment

It is possible to have comment threads, just as you would in a normal comments area. To make this work, click “Reply” next to a particular comment:
