Ready To Publish


Ever accidentally published a post? This will add a small checkbox to ensure that you don’t make that small mistake again. If you forget to check the option, it gives a little shake, and you can check again to publish.


  • This is what the checkbox looks like in the admin, with the default text. Smashing right?


  1. Upload the /ready-to-publish/ director to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Or, you know, since this is post 2008, use the admin options.


Can this be translated?

I think?

What if I want to change the text of the option?

Drop something like the following code into your functions.php file.

add_filter( 'ready_to_publish', function() { return ' AWESOME NEW TEXT'; } );
