Submit for Review

We have a nice little workflow improvement for those of you who use the Contributor role on your blogs. Contributors can now submit their posts for review by an Editor. When Contributors are done editing their post, they press the “Submit for Review” button to put the post in the Editor’s pending review queue.

Submit for Review

Editors can list all of the posts that are pending review on the Manage Posts page. Just select “Pending Review” from the Status dropdown.

Pending Review

Editors then have the option to either publish the post or set the status back to Draft if they don’t think the post is ready for publication.

For more details, see this writeup from Mark Jaquith.

    This is just what I need for a blog that I’m working on launching! The downside is that it’s a self-hosted WordPress blog.

    Any chance that this feature could be found in a plugin before this becomes part of the next WordPress release?

    This is a really cool feature. I would always accidentally discover that my contributors had posts in waiting because they forgot to email me that they had submitted a piece. Surprises are nice but this is better!

    This is one of the reasons I switched to WordPress.com (and domain mapping) from WordPress self-hosted (although I don’t actually have anyone else writing on my blog) – although I lose plugins and the ability to modify templates, new features are added more frequently and don’t involve my messing around with FTP servers to get them. Top job guys :)
