Simple Preview

Enables you to give a link to anonymous users for public preview of a post before it is published.

How is this different then Public Post Preview?

  1. Completely removed the use of "nonce" variable. Posts marked preview are now accessible by multiple anonymous users. There is no longer a 24hr time limit.
  2. Public_Post_Preview used the option variable as an array to store preview state - genius! However, it's use seemed backwards with an empty item == preview true. This logic was reversed so: simple_array[,,true,,true] now means that p=1 and p=4 have previews. This also allows for the preview to be turned off by default.
  3. Removed extra variables for a cleaner URI: http://www.yourblog.com/?p=1502&preview=true

How do I use it?

  1. Unlike public post preview, simple preview is not turned on by default.
  2. To enable simple preview for a specific post, check 'Allow Anonymous Preview' and save the post. A simple URL will be created.
  3. To disable, uncheck the box and save the post again
