PublishPress Has a New and Faster Editorial Calendar

New Calendar

PublishPress 3.4 is available now, and it has a completely new editorial calendar.

The old calendar had been around for many years and was starting to show its age. The old version used PHP for 80% of the codebase and only relied on Javascript for the drag-and-drop actions. This legacy code meant that the calendar was slow to load, slow to refresh, and difficult for us to update.

What Post Details Are Stored in WordPress Revisions?

Post Revisions

We develop the PublishPress Revisions plugin that allows you to submit, moderate, approve, and schedule revisions.

This plugin is built on top of the core revisions feature in WordPress.

Our Revisions Pro plugin is able to capture all of the data that has changed in your WordPress posts. However, that is not true of the normal revisions feature. People often tell us that their revisions are missing data.

How to Create a Content Schedule in WordPress

Content Schedule

If you're running a busy website, it's important to get a clear understanding of what content is being published.

The PublishPress plugin does offer a Calendar view where you can see all your content in a week-by-week layout. However, a Calendar view must inevitably hide some information or else it would become unbearably crowded.

For a clean view of all the key data for all your WordPress content, try the Content Overview screen in the PublishPress plugin.

What changed at PublishPress in 2019

This was a busy year here at PublishPress.

I wanted to take a moment to explain what happened at PublishPress in 2019. There were major changes this year that will probably require you to update your site, if you have been using our plugins for some time.

What happened at PublishPress in 2019?

Our goal is to create powerful publishing plugins for WordPress.

To reach that goal, we made a big acquisition that has taken us some time to absorb. One thing we did to absorb the new plugins was a change the way our plugins were structured.

At the beginning of 2019, everything was an add-on to the main PublishPress plugin. At the end of 2019, we have six separate plugins.

This post explained why we made that change.

PublishPress at the end of 2019

We now have 6 plugins. Each plugin has a Free and Pro version. Every Free version is on WordPress.org and every Pro version is behind the paywall for PublishPress members.

This image shows those six plugins:

The PublishPRess roadmap

Here's a quick overview of those six plugins:

  1. PublishPress: Plan and schedule your content using calendar and notifications.
  2. PublishPress Capabilities: Modify the default permissions in the WordPress core and other plugins.
  3. PublishPress Permissions: Advanced permissions way beyond what's possible with the WordPress core.
  4. PublishPress Revisions: Submit and moderate WordPress revisions.
  5. PublishPress Authors: Add as many authors as you want to any WordPress content.
  6. PublishPress Checklists: Set requirements before content is published on your site.

Some plugins have new names

During 2019, we also renamed some plugins. The goal was to create a product line up that’s consistent and easy to understand:

The 2020 roadmap

The 2019 roadmap is now complete!

Our focus is now to improve these six plugins. Our 2020 roadmap is “Integrate and Improve”. All our plugins will integrate smoothly. You will have a consistent and trustworthy experience, no matter which PublishPress plugins you use.

I hope this helps you understand what you can expect from your PublishPress membership. We truly believe this roadmap will provide you with a suite of powerful publishing plugins for WordPress.
