    I installed the latest version of EditFlow (0.6.4) and I am not able to make a page appear on the Story Budget page. It shows Posts but not Pages.

    Is there a way to make the appear on the Story Budget so that I can manage my WordPress project with it.

    Thanks - Andy

    Page (and custom post type) support is something not currently available with the Story Budget view in Edit Flow, which we've mentioned in a few other threads. It's in our backlog.

    Thanks for posting!

    It would be great if you would mention that in the plugin page. It is frustration to download, install and test a plugin just to figure out that a prominent piece is missing especially because you mention pages at least in one location.

    Other than that it looks promising and I am looking forward to use it on post-only sites.

    To clarify on Scott's response, Pages aren't supported in the story budget currently because the structure of the story budget page is depending on which post categories the content is in, and post categories aren't associated with Pages by default.

    We'd love to better understand your needs, and take those needs into consideration as we improve the story budget.

    Can you explain how you had hoped to use the story budget, what information you need available on it, and why, say, the calendar view doesn't work? (e.g. I want to use the story budget to see all upcoming unpublished content and be able to easily print a copy of everything).

    Thanks!

    I need the EditFlow to make sure that creating new pages or updating existing pages can be handled by a workflow. So for example someones get the job to write / update a page, then an editor reviews it and either sends it back to the author or sends it forward for someone to sign-off on it which when passed will publish the page.

    For example right now we are in the pre-launch phase and I took over and so I need to go through all pages, assign the pages to the authors if they need to be written / edited and the pages that are up to date need to be signed-off. When all pages are signed-off we can go live.

    Because all the people working on the site are volunteers and do this beside the regular job this must be efficient and easy to handle. That is why I think the Story Budget would be great because everyone can check in the evening if there is something that needs to be done. I would think that emails wouldn't work that well and it is hard for the administrator to keep an eye on outstanding issues.

    That said I am flexible and if you can tell me how I could get EditFlow running with Pages even just with emails I could get started with it even if Story Budget is not there yet.

    Thanks - Andy

    Awesome use case. I'm out for the next couple of days but I'll try to brainstorm examples of how you might use Edit Flow when I get back
