Before publishing normally we would like to mandate certain fields which are important like Title,Description,Meta keywords,etc. These fields are actually the basic fields to be filled in before publishing any post but it might slip out from the author’s mind unintentionally. In order to avoid this behavior we have developed this plugin which will ensure that all the fields decided by the admin should be filled in before posting any material.
This plugin can be customized to mandate upto 5 fields currently. This plugin plays a very useful role in case of mandating ‘Meta keywords’ field which help in bringing up your site in the initial pages of search engines like ‘Google’,’Bing’,etc. In this way it plays an important role in SEO.

More than 5 fields could be mandatory.
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- Check the id & name for the field you want to make it mandatory.
- Go to option’s page called “Mandatory Settings” paste the id & name as:- “Name:id”.
I would like to set (as administrator of a multi-blogeur blog) rules who would block automatically the submition of drafts if all the required fields are not properly complete by the authors.
Your plugin would therefore be very helpfull to solve my issue.
Unfortunately, your plugin does not seem to be compatible with my WP version (4.2.2).
Is that correct?
If so, are you going to update this plugin?
If no, do you know further plugins that are compatible to my WP version?
