[resolved] Editing of published pages (2 posts)

    The workflow of WordPress works very well if you write new posts/pages.
    But this workflow is incomplete if you want to edit existing and published pages.

    In this case there are two possible ways:

    1. Republish the edited page without confirmation by the editor/review.
    2. Saving the edited page as draft and removing them from the public visibility.

    My wishes for the workflow on published pages are the following:

    • The button "Republish" should be hidden for a regular author (user roles).
    • The first time when a published page is changed and saved (as draft), a shadow copy of the page is saved. This page is never public visible.
    • When an autor/editor opens a page that has a shadow copy, then the shadow copy will be opened.
    • If an editor/review publishes such a page, the content of the published page will be replaced by the content of the shadow copy. It is not suitable to create a new page and remove the old page - because all links to this page become broken then.

    Has anyone hints how this workflow can be realized?

    Thanks Widi

    There's a plugin called Revisionary that should get you most, if not all, of the way there :)
