Publishing Checklist

Description

Publishing Checklist is a developer tool for adding pre-flight editorial checklists to WordPress posts. Each time a user saves a post, Publishing Checklist validates that post type’s list of tasks to make sure the content is ready for release. Tasks are validated with callbacks you supply when registering tasks.

Screenshots

  • Checklist summaries will be displayed within a column on the Manage post screen.

  • Checklists will also be displayed within the Publish metabox on the Edit screen.

Installation

It’s a plugin! Install it like any other.

Once you’ve done so, you’ll need to register the checklist items and callbacks for your site. Here’s a simple example that checks for a featured image.

`php

add_action( ‘publishing_checklist_init’, function() {
$args = array(
‘label’ => esc_html__( ‘Featured Image’, ‘demo_publishing_checklist’ ),
‘callback’ => function ( $post_id ) {
return has_post_thumbnail( $post_id );
},
‘explanation’ => esc_html__( ‘A featured image is required.’, ‘demo_publishing_checklist’ ),
‘post_type’ => array( ‘post’ ),
);
Publishing_Checklist()->register_task( ‘demo-featured-image’, $args );
});
`

Posts get published regardless

The idea is great and probably the best implementation in the editor I have seen. However, it does not do the job.

Creators, please keep supporting this plugin 🙂
