    New handy box in editing view - When creating/editing a post or a page, users get access to a new box to prepare a new version or create a copy of the document with only one click !

    And when you're ready to update the current online article, it will just take you one more click. Easy as a pie!

    Create a new post as usual. When you’re done, you can of course publish it (A) or directly create a new version (B), or even create a copy (C). If you directly create a new version or a copy, the post is saved as a draft.

    After you prepared a new version, the “Pending versions” block now looks like the picture below (D). To access the pending versions list, you first need to edit the original post, or one of its pending versions.

    Once you clicked on a pending version of a post, you can edit it as a normal one. Inside the “Publish” block, hit the save button (E) to save the pending version you’re working on, or the preview button (F). To delete the pending version, click on the link “Move to trash” (H). If you want to replace the current version of the original post with the pending version click on the button “Update original” (G). You can also directly move to another pending version by clicking the link (I), create another new version (J) or create a complete new post (K) based on the current pending version.

    Preparing a new version - A copy of the article is created. "[New version]" is automatically prepended to its title and a link to the original article is available at the top of the editing form. The created post is completely independent of the original. It is in a Draft status and "[Copy]" is automatically prepended to its title.

    In the Posts list, a new column “Pending version” appears in last position.
