Announce on Publish


On sites that have custom post types defined, it might be desired that when publishing (i.e., changing the status to publish) an additional post be created informing of this event. For example, in a site a defined post type could be project, and the ordinary posts are used as a news feed. This plugin can be used so that when a user creates a new project, the user is requested to create the announcement post. Additional to this plugin, a great companion can be one of the plugins that post to social networks, so that the announcement also gets propagated to these.

The usage of this plugin is quite simple. Only for the post types configured for announcements, when pressing the Publish button a modal box will appear, with fields to edit the announcement title and content. Once the post is in publish status, the announcement modal box will not appear anymore for any edits done the original post.
