PublishPress Revisions


WordPress Revisions are a powerful way to track where your site has been. But what about where it’s going?

To moderate or schedule changes to published posts, just install PublishPress Revisions and let the teamwork begin. There is no need to learn or configure complex new screens. Users gain new abilities through the familiar UI of the Edit Posts screen and Gutenberg or Classic Editor.

New Editorial Capabilities, Smoothly Integrated

  • “Contributors” can submit revisions to their own published posts.
  • “Revisors” can submit revisions to posts and pages published by others.
  • “Authors”, “Editors” and “Administrators” can approve revisions or schedule their own revisions.
  • To schedule changes to a published post, just set the desired future date before hitting Update.


  • Schedule or request changes to published posts and pages using the Gutenberg (or Classic) Editor
  • Revision fields include Content, Title, Excerpt, Categories, Tags, Custom Taxonomy Terms, Page Parent or Page Template
  • Display changes using the familiar Compare Revisions interface
  • Front-end preview display of Pending / Scheduled Revisions with Compare, Approve, and Edit buttons.
  • Make further changes to Pending Revisions and Scheduled Revisions with Gutenberg or Classic Editor
  • New WordPress role, “Revisor” is a moderated Editor.
  • Works with site-wide WordPress Roles, or in conjunction with PressPermit Pro for page-specific or category-specific permissions.

I find PublishPress invaluable in scheduling our daily on-air Trivia contest (and many other station features). Makes my life SO much easier!
May 29, 2019
I was initially excited about Revisionary for these 3 key features: 1. The ability to make edits to existing WP pages/articles prior to a release and hold them until the release date 2. Change tracking so changes can be easily identified, reviewed, and reverted as necessary 3. Automatically schedule publishing of updated/new pages We are using Revisionary with WP v4.9 and HeroThemes. The first two items work well. The workflow of updating pages, submitting them for approval (which puts them into a pending state), and the ability to do a comparison between any 2 revisions or the revision and the published version is straight-forward. However, the process of scheduling automated publishing is too cumbersome to be useful. Each changed page must be manually configured to publish at a particular date/time (there is no default, so you have to use the calendar picker and enter the date and time of day from scratch every time). If the release were post-poned, I can't imagine having to manually go and change all of the scheduled dates to a different date. Revisionary needs a batch update process where all scheduled dates can be configured at the same time. (The work-around for me is to avoid scheduling and manually batch publish all pending revisions after the release.) Our hope is to continue using Revisionary as it solves a critical problem, providing a complete workflow solution to the maintenance of an online doc site with new content and revised content. However, Revisionary does not appear to work with WP 5.2 with WPML installed (for managing translations). The ability to put edited articles into a pending state no longer appears as an option. If this issue can be solved, Revisionary (even without the automated scheduling feature) would be a viable and welcome solution.

After trying to set this up and use it for a couple of hours I realised it doesn't support revisions to pages made with the Elementor page builder. I guess it also doesn't support other builders. That's a shame, but OK - I just can't use it. However the reason for me giving it just three stars isn't that lack of support, but that there was no indication of that and I was able to do a revision using this, but in doing so the original page formatting and styles (created using Elementor) were lost. Page builders seem to be the thing now and I would guess that most people wanting to use a tool like this would be using one.

Steve and Kevin are doing a great job of supporting this plugin -- it's so nice to have after years of the plugin going with updates. Overall, Revisionary is a great tool for basic revision workflows. Glad this plugin exists!
April 2, 2019
This plugin has been recently acquired and updated by PublishPress and is a fantastic utility for any WordPress blogger with lots of older content. It will allow you to schedule a revision and updated publication date for older posts you want to repurpose without the post going back into draft mode! Also, the publisher is very responsive with support and welcomes feedback on the product.
