Limit Revision Publishing


Limit Revision Publishing restricts edits made by users without the publish_{post_type} capability. Their edits will be queued, and the original post will remain published. The All Posts view in the WordPress Dashboard will contain a column indicating posts with unpublished revisions. Notification emails can be sent to a subset of users whenever a new revision has been submitted so users with elevated privileges can publish them.


  1. Upload „limit-revision-publishing“ to the „/wp-content/plugins/“ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the „Plugins“ menu in WordPress.
  3. Set the requisite permissions and roles via the Settings -> Limit Revision Publishing options page.
