Hello, I may have project that requires the ability to review and approve content. I get that we can create a page as a draft and share that URL so folks that are logged in can review it. Upon approval we can change the status to published. But I see that only working with new pages. What if you need to edit an existing page that’s already published/listed and you need approval of those edits before making those edits live to the public? This seems like an obvious requirement for edit/review/approval process. Maybe I missed something. Please advise.
Currently, there is no out of the box workflow for this.
What could work:
- Duplicate the page that needs to be changed and reviewed. The duplicate will be saved as a draft.
- When the new content is ready to be published, use a hook (maybe one that reacts on a “ready for publishing” toggle) to delete the old page and replace it with the duplicate.
- Since the new draft cannot have the same slug as the original, you probably have to store a connection between the two, so that you know the original title/slug when you later need to replace the original.
Better ideas welcome and maybe there is someone who has already created a plugin for this?
Did you ever find a fitting solution for this matter?
I decided not to use Kirby in the case, but the solution @texnixe suggested would work.
Since I’m in the same boat as you were a few months ago may I ask what did you end up using?
There are related feature wishes on the feedback channel you may want to upvote and/or add your perspective to:
@niintek, wordpress ( against my will )
@thewebprojects Auch I was hoping for a more satisfying answer
I’m currently exploring Craft, which does everything I need out of the box or with first party plugin.
I really love Kirby, but on this particular subject its lacking.
@sebastiangreger Upvoted already but doesn’t seem like a much wanted feature, unfortunately.
