Let your friends preview one of your drafts, without giving them permissions to edit posts in your blog
Only works with Posts. Not Pages or custom post types. That limits its usefulness.
It didn't need a separate link in the dashboard menu. Would have been better to put a link to share a draft next to the post titles.
I've tried the plugin on my Blog to give a friend access to a long report I wrote. It had 1100 Words and after I used this plugin the half text disappeared. Only the recover feature made it possible to get my post back. A better alternative ist Share Drafts Publicy which is also available in the wordpress plugin directory.
It's simple and useful, I like very much this plugin.
Really nice handy plugin.
Need improvement in UI and I hope it will support CPT as well in the future.
If for some reason you are stuck without a development server, this plugin can save a lot of headache.
I have been using this plugin for about 8 months. It is really functional. However, there is one fluke thing which I find a bit annoying. That is when one shares a draft. That is the version of the content that anyone with that link will see. So, if the author goes in and updates the content. They have to re-share the draft and then circulate the new link. This gets old if the draft is being worked on while it is also being reviewed by several people.
Most authors don't wanna deal with the admin panel. This really helps!
This is invaluable when working with multiple authors, especially if the others don't like to use the admin panel.
The functionality of this plugin is great. The ability to time-limit the preview is definitely going to be useful to some people.
The UI of the plugin could use some work. It's currently buried in a submenu of the Posts menu. From there, you have to choose a draft from a drop-down list. It seems to me that putting the UI on the post's screen would be better, as that's where people are when they're editing that post they want to share with someone else.
