    Seems like an awesome Plugin and exactly what I need, but I use WP ver. 3.6, which it has not been tested with yet. Any idea when that might happen? If it's going to be soon I'd rather wait, then install something else in the meantime. THANKS!


  2. I can tell you that there are some things broken in Edit Flow that you'll notice in WordPress 3.6. Here is my experience.

    After upgrading to WordPress 3.6, I discovered that I could not preview posts using the custom post status of Pitch. This took me forever to diagnose and figure out but it has something to do with the plugin not generating a revision which is shown as the post preview when the preview button is selected. I have demonstrated this bug to the developers at Automattic who are in control of this plugin and they are currently developing a fix. If you experience this problem with Edit Flow, I suggest you set your Default post status to Draft since the Draft post status works as expected.

    There is another bug that’s in the core which if you’re quick editing the post to change post status or heck do anything from quick edit screen (then the timestamp gets saved)… Which means when you later publish the post and if you weren’t paying close attention… your post wouldn’t go out immediately… it was backdated to the day that you first made the quick edit.

    I've also discovered that my Archive page shows a bunch of errors related to an Edit Flow function dealing with custom statuses. It's a mess and this plugin needs some serious love.

    Thanks jeffr0 for your critique. I too am keen on this plugin but can see it's not ready yet.

    If you're interested, there's a dire need for folks to file issues on Edit Flow's GitHub issues page. Reporting issues there is definitely the quickest way to get them fixed (helps to keep things organized and flowing smoothly).

    There's a fix in the works that will hopefully solve the first issue that jeffr0 mentioned (you can find it here https://github.com/Automattic/Edit-Flow/issues/206).

    Right now we're looking to get a new version out the door that at bare minimum fixes the issues related to 3.6. If you ever have spare time, the more eyeballs there are for reporting, tracking and triaging issues, the better change there is for a quicker turnover. Any and all help is always greatly appreciated!
