PublishPress Checklists is the plugin if you want to control the quality of your WordPress content. You can define tasks that authors must complete before content is published. These tasks are things like writing a minimum number of words, or adding a featured image.
Sometimes the simplest questions can lead you down the biggest rabbit holes. A few weeks ago, I asked our team, “What is the best way to translate WordPress plugins?“ We need an answer because we’ve been growing quickly here at PublishPress. More users are asking if our plugins are available in different languages.
Some of the PublishPress plugins have existed for more than 10 years. For example, the PublishPress Revisions plugin was launched back in 2009! In contrast, the PublishPress Authors plugin is very new. It only launched on WordPress.org in 2020.

Just over two months ago, we acquired the Press Permit plugins. Just importantly, Kevin (the original developer of the plugins) came to work with us. Two plugins have already moved here to PublishPress: Revisionary and Capability Manager Enhanced. The next step is to move the remaining Press Permit plugins over here to PublishPress.com.
Update: this plugin is now called “PublishPress Capabilities”. I’m delighted to say that the Capability Manager Enhanced plugin is now part of the PublishPress family. This is one of the most popular Permissions plugins on WordPress.org, with over 70,000 active installs.
One week ago, we announced the acquisition of over a dozen plugins. That’s a lot of plugins, and over the next few months we’ll be moving all of them here to PublishPress.com. One of the new plugins is Revisionary, the best choice for managing, scheduling and moderating WordPress revisions. Here’s what Revisionary allows you to…
