Edit Flow v0.6.3: Email bug fix and seeing unpublished content

We released Edit Flow v0.6.3 on Monday to fix/add a few things. First, we restored email notifications to old delivery method instead of queueing with WP cron because of reliability issues. This should fix any and all notification delivery problems. Second, per a request in the forums, we’ve added the ability to see just “unpublished” content on the story budget and editorial calendar. This could be pretty useful for those newsrooms with a lot of content published on a daily basis.

As always, please hit us with feedback, ideas, and questions in the WordPress.org forum.

How to disable email notifications for post status changes

In the WordPress.org forum, a user wanted to know how to disable email notifications for post status changes without also disabling email notifications for new editorial comments. Edit Flow makes this pretty simple to do. Simply add the following snippet to the functions.php file of your active theme and you’re good to go!

As of v0.6, Edit Flow hooks into ‘transition_post_status’ to add an email notification when the post status changes. To disable these email notifications, all you need to do is remove the hook.

v0.5.1: maintenance release

We tagged a maintenance release on Wednesday evening that cleaned up a few rough ends in v0.5. These include:

On Wednesday evening, I also had the chance to update our roadmap to 1.0. The next scheduled release is 0.6 and will feature such awesome goodness (we hope) as better support for custom post types, custom task lists, and a refactored editorial calendar with story budget view.
