Support » Fixing WordPress » Wait comitting changes for a post/page

  • Hi
    I have a page with some text. I want to add or edit some text but wait with publishing the changes for some days. If i choose to update the page as a draft, the page cannot longer be found, because drafts cannot be seen on the website.
    If i choose to update the page and set a publish date, i get the same problem; The page cannot be found untill the date i have chosen.

    Is there a way to save these changes, and show the old version of the page untill i decide to publish the new changes?

  • I don’t think so, no. Not on a normal WP installation without any fancy plugins to do this.

    Maybe I’m wrong though and someone knows a way to do this.

    +1! Scheduling a revision. That’s very interesting! Will wait for experience input on this thread! 🙂

    As far as I am aware, the functionality to schedule a revision doesn’t exist yet.

    Could be a great trac ticked!

    I’d argue that it would need to be submitted via WordPress Ideas. Trac is more for bugs & patches rather than a completely new feature.

    @prionkor it does sound interesting enough to be a ticket but I doubt there are enough arguments to implement it since there’s (I believe) a rather small group of people needing this functionality and it’s so easy to just return to the article and add extra content.

    Could be added on core or by plugin. One of the use case I was thinking if I have a product to lunch and the content of homepage changes over time, I could scheduled that way.

    I agree that would be need by small amount of people, . But when i think about it i feel the revision/scheduling post will be more complete with this feature.
