Support » Fixing WordPress » Allowing contributers to edit any post and submit for review

  • Hey everyone,
    I was wondering if anyone knew how to allow contributes (or any other role for that matter) edit posts to submit for review? I’m developing a site with lots of content and I want to allow other people at my company to edit the posts (actually, custom posts types, but I don’t think it matters), and submit them for review without actually making changes until I approve them. Is there an easy way to do this? I read and installed the plugin but this didn’t seem to work, just lets you edit and then publish or return the post to draft status. I want the current version of the post to remain published, then to switch to the submitted version after I approve it.
    Thanks in advance!

  • Hi,
    I have been searching for a solution to the exact same problem!

    I have tried several different WP plugins (and combination of plugins) to try and get the result I want but have failed.

    Did you manage to find a solution?

    Many thanks,

    I’m also looking for a solution to the same problem as sgelbart as I don’t want to take posts down while waiting for updates to be approved. Any updates would be appreciated.


    I’m also looking for this solution – without having to use a plugin please.


    I ended up using a plugin called Revisionary in conjunction with Capabilities. This allows users to ‘save as pending revision’ without removing the original. With capabilities I can specify that users can edit others posts but cannot edit published posts, meaning they cannot update the live copy.

    Thanks @neilwill! I’d still love to be able to do this without a plugin, but for now it will have to do.

    Sorry that plugin is named ‘Capability Manager’. It just shows in the menu as capabilities.
