Conflict with the best WP newsletter plugin MailPoet
By ,

Hi Edit Flow Team:

We love your plugin for building a large publishing site. And we also love mailpoet - the best WP newsletter plugin.

However, your plugin renders mailpoet useless. If we enable EditFlow, then any text block in Mailpoet simply disappears if we click to edit it. This has been confirmed by a few users. Please look into this and help us fix this.

Thank you!

Fantastic virtual news desk; Regardless of site size it supports all the needs
By , for WP 3.9.1

I was shocked to see something which is an "out of the box" plugin, work so great. This plugin is very stable, well coded, and well supported.

Initially, we had some troubles using it due to our theme's use of CPTs. At one point we were aiming to do a site re-design over the summer to resolve this, but the need to do came much sooner. With converting our DB over, we found any trouble spots were immediately resolved. A second trouble spot occurred when the 3.9 core update came out and a conflict arose with Mail Poet. Daniel was on top of it. One look at the support forum, he was aware and working on it. I only had to sit back and wait.

I had spoken with the dev about a custom project to resolve those items which were trouble when we were using the theme that exploited CPTs, but it became not necessary when we performed website conversion and theme overhaul.

I and the staff depend on the plugin heavily. I'm still trying to think of ways to hire Daniel for news desk projects with regards to his plugin, too! I'm also using a hook he offered on the plugin's website to hide the PUBLISH button until a certain status is reached; A necessary workaround due to a user role management plugin not performing as expected.

This plugin leaves us much room to grow into its functions, and we are experiences an incredible amount of growth. This plugin's features are scaleable: From small site to large site it is simply all there.

The features we like the most are the CUSTOM STATUS and NOTIFICATIONS. They work for *everyone* at every level of user role.

I gave it 4 out 5 stars because it's very close to being "all that and a bag of chips." It is strongly recommended.

Has a Base64 hack built in
By , for WP 3.9

Spent my entire day dealing with this bull****

\edit-flow\common\php\class-module.php , line 409

	 * This is a hack, Hack, HACK!!!
	 * Encode all of the given arguments as a serialized array, and then base64_encode
	 * Used to store extra data in a term's description field
	 * @since 0.7
	 * @param array $args The arguments to encode
	 * @return string Arguments encoded in base64

Not cool guys. Left us wide open.

Amazing plugin
By ,

Not sure why I don't see this plugin mentioned more - it's amazing and essential IMHO.

WordPress' current post statuses are far too limiting for serious publishing. Managing a list of posts that are, ready to be published, just ideas, and everything else in between categorized solely as 'drafts' is madness.

Edit Flow has a lot of nice features, but the ability to create additional statuses like ideas, rough drafts, and final drafts is extremely helpful and why I'm giving it 5-stars.

Amazing Plugin
By , for WP 3.8.1

This plugin does what it says it does, adds quite a lot of features that are definitely needed for site owners that run a site with multiple authors!

Doesn't get the 5 stars due to it taking way too much time to submit different actions such as Editorial Comments, but it does work pretty well

Could you Add This Feature?
By , for WP 3.8

Very nice plugin, congrats.
I have been searching for the following feature for DAYS now, to no avail:

- I create titles on the admin side (not posts, just titles of posts.) There is also a field where I can input each titles' price. Then I publish them for all my writers to see.

- If a writer is interested in a title, he can claim it from the assignments list. As a result, the title would automatically disappear and prevent other writers from claiming it. If two writers just happened to be looking at the titles screen at the same time, they still should NOT be able to claim it even if the screen tells them the title is supposedly available (again,because someone else had already claimed it.)

- Writers cannot claim more than one article at a time.

- The writer is then taken to a writing screen where he can write the title he claimed.

Meanwhile, the admin can keep track of who claimed what, so that the admin can pay them accordingly. There should be a history of all the claimed titles for the admin's references, in case the admin only pays 60 days after publishing the article, for example.

The above features are quite robust, so a brand new plugin may be needed for this. I am a content provider and i manager hundreds of writers. So if you ever make a paid plugin like the above, i will be the first one to buy it from you.

I don't know how I ever managed my site without this. I'm feeling so organized! I love the drag-and-drop calendar. It's essential for those of us who are "visual" planners.

Definitely get this plugin if you run a busy blog with multiple authors.

I give this plugin 6 stars,

3.) Lets you set post/pages for review by multiple parties before publishing (great way to pitch ideas and have multiple editors)
5.) The Calendar is intuitive, drag/drop/edit post by date in calendar
6.) Notifications, you can display memos to certain post for your team/editor/or employees EVERYONE CAN FINALLY BE ON THE SAME PAGE!
7.) Set Rolls and Restrictions on who edits what by personnel or group (I mean come on these guys thought of everything)


Where do I send my money im donating right now!

Best plugin for running a multi-author blog
By , for WP 3.7.1

Don't let the version (currently 0.7.6) full you, this is a very mature plugin, an essential one if you're running a multi-author blog.
