    My host just installed the Share Draft plugin, which I see under Plugins, but I can't find anywhere how to use it. I don't see it listed under Posts as in the example I've seen.

    I would like to rescind this request. My host helped me to find the solution. Thanks.

    Does this allow an expiry date the never ends?

    There are no settings, no expiration date, just a link. However, if you update your blog "after" sending someone the draft link, they will get an error message, and won't be able to see the draft. That's the only downside. It works great otherwise.

    What we've resorted to is sending out the link and then making a duplicate copy of the blog that we continue to work on in the meantime. :-0

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    So if I understand you correctly, every time I press safe draft on an individual post it will generate a new url.

    You will have to send the "new" URL. It generates a new URL for each update. Only flaw.

    We use a similar feature on a wordpress.com blog and can make as many changes as we wish. the original URL will still work.

    In our research, we didn't see a .org draft sharing plug in that worked like the .com one. However, there may be one.

    Great that's easy enough.

    Nice plugin!

    This has been patched in the latest update. A new secret key is generated only if you turn off that post's public draft status and then turn it back on again.
