An editor can make changes to a live page and then save as a draft and preview before publishing over the existing page/post.
Saving revisions to a page as a a draft doesn’t seem to work – notices about various undefined variables and then a “headers already sent” error.
The plugin says it will allow you to make changes to a “live” page and then save it as a draft. Then you can allow other people to review the draft or just continue working on the draft. Then, when you finish your draft changes, you can publish the page and the “temporary” page disappears. It’s wonderful and I suggest this as part of every website installation. I find it extremely useful.
Let me know if you find this plugin as useful as I do.
