[resolved] How to prevent accidental use of Publizise (5 posts)

    Hi

    I had a situation today where I wanted upload a basic outline of a draft. First I saved my draft and then re-edited the post and unfortunately, I have somehow published and hence notified: twitter and linkedIn the basic title of my post but without any content. Is there a way to prevent this in the future so that any draft remains private until I explicitly publish. It would be better if publize had a confirmation mode so that only the exact published version I want gets the broadcast treatment.
    Of course now publize won't now allow me to send notifications even when the post has content......aaahhhhhhhhhhh!!!

    I'm afraid Publicize doesn't offer such option: it is triggered as soon as the post is published.

    To solve this issue, I would suggest that you install this plugin:

    This way, you won't publish anything by accident ever again!

    Thanks ... I had a look at that plugin and whilst it's a good idea in principle that dialog box would be a nightmare as I tend to published a number of minor amendments after rereading my posts a few times
    I think for me it's best get in the habit of

    • Live writer -> save first draft
    • In WP Dashboard save draft and only when I am happy would click the publish button.

    Previously, I had found an issue with the JetPack grammar checker on my amended posts as it seem to mess up the html but we can follow that up in a separate thread

    As far as I know, the dialog box won't be triggered until you hit the Publish button, so that shouldn't be a problem.

    If you give me more details here, I'd be happy to have a look!

    Thanks for the offer. I am working on a new post so that would be a good place to start. I will need to reconfigure the grammar check to now trigger on amendments. Hence, I will post here when I have run through the checker a few times.
