  • Hi,

    I can consider myself as oldschool for website. So actually, one website for a friend is shared throw DropBox because it’s only HTML / CSS. Both of us can publish a modification on the online site. that’s OK.

    But, what about WP ? I’m working with a friend on the design. Each of us is admin and can add / remove plugins on the production site.
    We have 3 other persons who are less familiar with CMS so, they just publish stories on the production site directly.

    The way of work I’m looking is :
    – 2 computers with a local development site.
    – 1 production site
    – 3 writers who can publish on the online site
    – 2 admins who can work locally before publishing. And be sure that 1 admin don’t overwrite the work of a writer or the other admin who published something new on WP or WooCommerce for example.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    You could create a stanging environment online just to be sure that the work you do on your local machine works properly also on your server before pushing everything on your production website.

    Also use GitHub (or Bitbucket) to version control the code of the theme and be sure that nobody overwrites anything.

    And chose carefully user roles in WordPress so your writers can only write articles and not mess up the website.

    Thanks for the answer.
    It looks like an heavy solution for a simple needs.
    The stanging environment is interesting. For 2 users, we can both work on it and then replicate on the production server. We loose the ability to work offline but it may be the simplest solution ?



    Yes, it’s simpler, but I’ll try anyway to set-up version control with GitHub or Bitbucket. Maybe I’m overprecaucious, but I’d like to stay on the safe side 😉
