You Can Now Submit Revisions for Unpublished Posts

Revisions Unpublished

For several years, the PublishPress Revisions plugin has focused on controlling who can update published content.

The Revisions plugin is very helpful when you want to copy a WordPress post, edit it, and then publish the update.

We're delighted to say that is starting to change. With version 2.4 of PublishPress Revisions, you can now create revisions for unpublished content. So if you have a post in “Draft” or “Pending Review” status, you can submit a revision of that content for approval.

What is the Best Plugin to Track WordPress Revisions?

Change Wordpress 1

We develop a plugin called PublishPress Revisions that allows you to submit, approve and schedule changes to your WordPress content.

However, PublishPress Revisions doesn't (yet) keep an easily visible log of all your content changes. This week, someone emailed us and wanted to know if this was possible using another plugin.

I decided to install and test seven plugins that can track content changes.

Review of the Simple History Plugin for WordPress

Simple History

We recently looked at many different plugins to find the best one for tracking content changes.

The Simple History plugin was our favorite. Simple History allows site administrators to keep a log of all tasks performed within a WordPress site.

This plugin generates two tables in the WordPress database and these store all the changes to your site. These records will be deleted after 60 days to stop your database getting too big.

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.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask in the comments or email us.
