Support » Plugin: Edit Flow » WordPress 5.6 support

  • Hi,

    Edit Flow has been throwing jQuery deprecation warnings since 5.5 with the jQuery migration helper. I think it’s blocking the upgrade to 5.6 now – will you be able to provide an update to solve this?

    Was coming here to ask the same question

    Same here. Any updates coming?

    The full warning:

    /wp-content/plugins/edit-flow/common/js/jquery.listfilterizer.js:17:13: jQuery.expr[‘:’] is deprecated; use jQuery.expr.pseudos

    /wp-content/plugins/edit-flow/common/js/jquery.quicksearch.js:316:51): jQuery.fn.keydown() event shorthand is deprecated

    /wp-content/plugins/edit-flow/common/js/jquery.quicksearch.js:324:47): jQuery.fn.submit() event shorthand is deprecated

    I’m afraid this plugin is dead. The issue has been known for months but there has been zero response by the developers here. Time to move on 🙁

    Update: I talked to one of the former developers and he is confirmed this project is no longer being maintained. Here’s more information and a few alternatives, including a fork of EF:

    Thank you bartv42!

    PublishPress is the plugin that Automattic recommended as an alternative, and it is the closest one to matching Edit Flow’s features. It has 7,000 active installs and is used by companies, non-profits, educational institutions, magazines, newspapers, and blogs.

    In the free plugin, PublishPress provides an editorial calendar, notifications, editorial comments, custom statuses, content overview, and the ability to create custom metadata for posts. Its creators also offer commercial add-ons for things like a content checklist, Slack notifications, multiple authors, WooCommerce checklist, and more.

    Since PublishPress is actually a fork of the Edit Flow plugin, users can migrate seamlessly from Edit Flow without losing any data or settings using the plugin’s built-in migration utility.

    Hi all, thanks for your thoughts and discussions here.
    I am tracking this issue here
