How to Moderate and Publish Revisions

PublishPress Revisions enables users to safely make changes to published content. PublishPress Revisions offers a safe space for users to work on content updates. When the changes are ready, they can ask for approval to publish the update. Administrators can approve or reject the changes. They can also schedule them to go live in the future.

This “Revisions Queue” screen shows you the revisions that have been submitted. You can see posts in various statuses:

  • Not Submitted: Users are still working on these updates.
  • Submitted: These updates are waiting for approval.
  • Scheduled: These changes are waiting to go live on a future date.

  • View Published Post: See the currently published post.
  • Edit: Make changes to this revision.
  • Publish now: Make this the currently published revision.
