Edit Flow and Role scoper

  • I’m interested in this too. That’s what I was trying to get at with my comment on this post:

    Hi Quint,

    I think we are trying to accomplish similar things. There’s a lot of things I like about edit flow except for the way that the workflow works, which is the most important to me.

    I used role scoper and capability manager to manage the roles. Basically everyone has the author role, which I gave access to selected plugins and removed access to publish. Then I used role scoper groups to give publish access. I have an editor in chief group, writer group and editor group by category.

    I spent a lot of time looking over the edit flow code through the weekend. I would like it set up so sending it to pending review would send it to the editor for the category that it’s assigned and limit what status you can send it to so only an editors can set certain statuses and writers can set the other statuses.

    Basically, that is a major change from the way edit flow is currently set up. I plan on making major changes for my implementation to control who can set what statuses and who receives emails for status changes. I’d like to link it to the role scoper groups, but it looks like I’m going to use the edit flow usergroups instead.

    I’m not sure how long this will take, but I can let you know if I actually get it working.

    I’ll look at these same things… But I want to make it very clear that I think Edit Flow is awesome. I hate it when people post on boards and nit pick free plug-ins apart. I don’t want to be perceived as one of those people. I am working with students so it’s a bit of a different environment. That’s why I’m so specific as to the flow.

    I’m pretty sure we are going to implement this just on our sports desk this coming semester.

    But I would love to hear how you progress on this and I will do the same.

    Great work Edit Flow.

    Hi Quint,

    I’m with you too. I think that edit flow is a great plugin, I was just trying to say it didn’t do what I needed it to do. I don’t think any plugin can do everything that everyone wants.

    I hear you. And I hope you didn’t feel like I was accusing you of that…

    I spent a lot of time looking over the edit flow code through the weekend. I would like it set up so sending it to pending review would send it to the editor for the category that it’s assigned and limit what status you can send it to so only an editors can set certain statuses and writers can set the other statuses.

    Here’s some sample code you can use to limit statuses to specific roles using Edit Flow: https://gist.github.com/789255

    It limits author to only have access to ‘Draft’ and ‘Pitch’, whereas editors (and administrators, by omission) have access to all of them.

    Hopefully this should point you in the right direction 🙂

    Brian,

    I’d love to hear if you got it working. I believe I want the exact same thing:

    Author writes & sends it to Editor. Editor checks it & either sends it back ‘down’ to Author, or sends it ‘up’ to Publisher. Publisher picks the date & schedules it.

    It’s like a chain, where at one point I even considered having more links in the middle (could be a flexible system). I ended up creating my own program to do this, but now want to see it within EF.

    I really like what the developer’s done with EF, & would love to implement it on my blog. Maybe we can all help the developer to see this get implemented.

    Thanks,
    -David

    So I’ve been trying Mohammad’s code and I’m having a little bit of trouble.

    For some reason, I can only limit it to the statuses that are already built into edit flow (pitch, assigned) or wordpress (draft). It doesn’t matter what order I put them in, they come in just fine and they work.

    However, the custom statuses (for example, “ready for editor”) will not show up in the dropdown menu. I put them in the same as I do “assigned” or “pitch”, but they don’t work.

    Can anybody help me with that?

    Hello,

    Could you help me understand exactly what you are trying to do? I am also using EditFlow, and am interested in making it easier to associate certain roles with certain statuses, so I can limit what shows up in calendar, budget, based on what roles a given user has. Is this the high-level thing you are trying to accomplish?

    Thanks,

    Jon Morgan

    Hi Mohammad,

    Can you tell me where to put the code to make this work? I also don’t want contributors to be able to access all the statuses.

    Thanks
    Jonathan
