Support » Plugins » preview mode for already published posts/pages

  • does anyone know if there is a way to preview changes to an already published post/page before having it go live?

    for instance, i’m going to have an “About” page that i will populate with content and publish when my site launches. i’ll probably be modifying the content every week or so and i don’t want users to see the changes being made as i save them. i want to make all the changes for that week and push it live once. it’s important that i be able to see the content within the shell of the full site rather than just the textarea.

  • Can’t say that I do (know of a way to preview edits to already published posts/Pages).

    For your ‘About’ Page I can suggest excluding the Page from any listings on your site (typically through wp_list_pages()). Then you could visit the Page manually through the url or the view link, but it would not be completely public.

    EDIT: Forgot to note WordPress 2.5 will (finally) provide a post status option for Pages. But that’s still about a month off from release.

    thanks for the reply, kafkaesqui.

    how do you preview edits to already published posts/pages? this is exactly what i want to do. right now, i need to save to preview and when i save an already published post, it’s live. i need to preview before saving/going live.

    let me know if that’s confusing at all.

    oh and i can’t have the ‘About’ page excluded at any time. it needs to always be accessible and public.

    As Kaf said, there is no such functionality in WP. Maybe you could look for a plugin to add this functionality.

    Seeing as how this was last posted to 9 months ago, maybe something new has happened.

    I too would like to be able to modify a live post or page and then preview the changes before I make those changes live.

    I’ve done a lot of searching but haven’t found anything on this. Can anyone at WordPress or in the community speak to this?
