Edit Flow v0.6.5: Fixes post timestamp issue when using custom statuses

Out just a moment ago, Edit Flow v0.6.5 has one purpose: to fix an issue with the post timestamp being set when you set a post to a custom status.

Basically, if you set a post or a page to a custom post status, the publication timestamp would be set and saved. Upon publication of the piece, the publication date was set to whenever you originally saved the post with a custom post status. Our fix works around some of the limitations of WordPress core on this issue.

WordPress.org user saomay deserves our thanks for their patience in helping track down the issue, and testing the fixes. It was originally reported in the forum.

It’s worth noting that we’re actively working on v0.7. You can follow our discussion on our development blog. We’ll be looking for beta testers, translators, and documentation writers shortly. If you’d like to help out, let us know in the comments.


  1. My biggest wish for EditFlow (which I love!) is that it could absorb http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/editorial-calendar/ … I know EditFlow has a calendar, but it’s just not quite as well-done as the Editorial Calendar plugin. So I use both plugins, which feels silly. 🙂

    • What features in particular are you looking for in the calendar?

      We’re currently doing a redesign that allows for:

      Viewing multiple weeks on the calendar (defaults to four)
      Show editorial metadata on the calendar
      Sort the calendar by date editorial metadata (e.g. “due date”)

  2. I would not mind to translate the plugin into Spanish, also would not mind to be a beta tester. Just tell me 🙂

    Congrats for your work and effort. Keep it up!

    Sorry if my question is obvious, but can’t find …
    How I can use the editorial data in an email or a widget?
