Customize Snapshots

Allow Customizer states to be drafted, and previewed with a private URL.

  1. customize-snapshots screenshot 1

    The “Save & Publish” button is broken up into separate “Save” and “Publish” buttons. The “Save” button creates a snapshot and turns into “Update” to save a new snapshot.

  2. customize-snapshots screenshot 2

    For non-administrator users (who lack the new customize_publish capability) the “Publish” button is replaced with a “Submit” button. This takes the snapshot and puts it into a pending status.

    Saving snapshot causes the snapshot UUID to appear in the URL, allowing it to be bookmarked to easily come back to later. Upon publishing, the UUID will be removed from the URL so a new snapshot can be started made.

  4. customize-snapshots screenshot 4

    The Snapshots admin page lists out all of the snapshots in the system. When the excerpt view is turned on, a list of the settings modified in the snapshot can be seen.

  5. customize-snapshots screenshot 5

    Viewing a snapshot post in the admin shows all of the modified settings contained within it. A link is provided to open the snapshot in the Customizer to continue making changes.

  6. customize-snapshots screenshot 6

    Published snapshots are shown in the admin screen but lack the ability to open in the Customizer, as they are intended to be frozen revisions for when the Customizer was saved.

  7. customize-snapshots screenshot 7

    Changes to snapshots are captured in revisions.
