Thanks to an awesome contribution from Daniel Chesterton, we have an oft-requested feature to give you today: custom statuses for contributors. Previously, your contributors and other users without the ‘publish_posts’ capability had two options, “Save as Draft” or “Submit for Review”. With Edit Flow v0.7.2, they can save content to any stage of your workflow.
Here’s what the submit meta box now looks like for your contributors:
You can use a simple filter to restrict your contributors to only changing specific statuses. If you did so, it would look like this:
In this release, we’ve also incorporated the following changes:
- Support for trashing posts from the calendar. Thanks Dan York for the idea and a bit of code.
- Updated codebase to use PHP5-style OOP references.
- Fixed some script and stylesheet references that had a double ‘//’ in the URI path
edit_flow_supported_module_post_types_argsfilter allows you to enable custom statuses and other modules for private post types
See Github for all of the closed issues.
