Content Branching

    Hi all,

    Just wondering if WordPress can introduce a mechanism to store not only revisions but different versions of a published post.

    Already found some interesting (unmaintained) plugins offering this feature but I’m curious about WordPress developers opinion on the matter.

    A quick description about the feature:

    * Have a published post
    * Create a fork of it (published post remains live)
    * Edit the forked one (fully functional with revisions, preview and everything)
    * Publish the forked one (overwriting original)

    Wouldn’t it be nice? Is this plugin territory?

    I like the idea (as a good archivist) but what about the gigantic size of the database...?

    @JeRetiens: I'd say this shouldn't occupy more space than revisions.

  4. This Idea is Good But Database Size will be Increased.

    Timothy: see my previous reply. On the other hand, for real content branching, you may want to keep your digital assets under version control too. That could be a problem that I can understand.
