Publicly available WordPress draft pages and posts

Requires a new CMS Component?: No
Requires New Functionality?: Yes
Estimated Completion Date: Completed - Mid Mar 2019


Currently there is no way to share a preview link of draft WordPress page on a live site with someone who doesn’t have an account for site. Can we consider installing a plug-in that allows this.

I googled a couple:

The first looks more legit….30,000 installations. The second could be dicey.



[Update: WP Drafts for Friends rejected as it is posts-only.]

[Update 2: PPP being tested in verf environment.]

[Update 3: Showed tool to Randy at drop-in. May want to extend preview availability time to 5+ days instead of default 2 days. ]

[Update 4: SQ started draft documentation in CMS site.]

[Update 5: SQ pulled plugin into production. Plugin activated on in OK Main site. Randy to test before broader rollout. ]

[Plugin only activated per-site. IT/UR/Webcore may want to consider network-wide rollout?]

[Update 6: SQ Network Activated Public Post Preview. It is now available for all UBCO CMS websites and all themes.]
