PublishPress Revisions: Duplicate Posts, Submit, Approve and Schedule Content Changes

PublishPress Revisions: Duplicate Posts, Submit, Approve and Schedule Content Changes


PublishPress Revisions is the ultimate tool for making content changes. Users get a safe space 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.

Your users can update posts using the normal WordPress editor, but their changes will not be published automatically. Instead, the changes are stored in a “Revision Queue”. The changes can be approved, rejected or scheduled. PublishPress Revisions works with the familiar WordPress interface, including Gutenberg and the Classic Editor.

Submit Change Requests for Posts

PublishPress Revisions allows your users to submit change requests for published posts. Your users can update posts using the normal WordPress editor, but their changes will not be published automatically. Instead, the changes are stored as a “pending revision” that can be approved or rejected.

Click here to see how to submit revisions.

Schedule Future Updates to Posts

PublishPress Revisions allows you to schedule WordPress revisions to be published in the future. When you’re editing a published post, all you need to do is select a future date and click “Schedule Revision”. Your changes will be published at the specified time.

Click here to see how to schedule revisions.

Manage and Moderate Changes to Content

After you create a revision with PublishPress Revisions, you can find that revision on the Revision Queue screen. This screen shows you all the revisions that have been submitted for approval. Underneath each duplicate post you can choose from several moderation tools: Edit, Delete, Preview and Compare.

Click here to see how to manage and moderate revisions.

Compare Current and Former Versions

Pending and Scheduled Revisions can include changes to post content, categories, tags, featured image, page parent and other options. Each of these changes can be reviewed in the familiar Compare Revisions interface.

Click here to see how to compare revisions.

Frontend Moderation of Content Changes

It is possible to preview and moderate revisions via the frontend of your WordPress site. If you click Preview for a pending revision, you’ll see a toolbar across the frontend of the site. This toolbar will change color so you can easily know the status of the revision. For example, if you’re looking at a pending revision, the toolbar will be green. For scheduled revisions, the toolbar will be grey.

Click here to see how to manage from the frontend of your site.

Email Notifications for Revisions

PublishPress Revisions will notify Administrators and Editors when a new revision is submitted. They can log in to preview, compare and approve the changes. PublishPress Revisions can also send emails for revision approval and publication. The Settings screen lets you disable unwanted notifications.

All I can go back to is a jacked up version of my homepage or a blank page. Rebuilt the page and all that’s available are the jacked up version and blank page…. third times a charm but first, I have to clean up the mess this plugin made.

If you’re using WordPress to manage documentation, Publish Press Revisions is a great enhancement. It allows you to manage revisions and makes the default revision manager much easier to use. I’m thinking about getting the pro version so I’m able to schedule when revisions are published.

This plugin is great, but saidly I cannot revision learnpress courses so that the attributes of the “old” version is copied over. It actually possible but I would have to fill in all course information everytime which is really annoying… It would be great if that feature could be added so that I can attach new lessions to a learnpress course via revision 🙂
