Problem
In WordPress it is not possible to edit a published post and save it as new draft or pending review without removing the post from the frontend.
In the moment, if the post status is set to something else as published, it is removed. This makes it impossible to create a private draft or set an edited post to pending review without creating a 404.
For the BuddyForms front-end editing we want to have the feature to save a private draft or set the edit post to pending review without creating a 404.

With the BuddyForms Moderation Extension you can solve exactly this problem.

The extension creates a new Form Builder MetaBox “Moderation”

With 3 new Post Status

  • Edit draft –> Is a new created post or a new edit draft of an existing post and only available for your editing.
  • Awaiting Review –> You have finished editing and want your post to be moderationed and published.
  • Approved –> Your post has been approved and is merged back to the live version.

How it works:
If you create a new edit draft, a new child post of your live post will be created as a duplicate of your live post.
During the editing process you will edit the child post and your live version is untouched and available to the public.
If you set the post to “awaiting review” and a moderationer (admin) approves your post, the post will be merged back to the live version and set to approved.

This will work for all the content, custom fields and taxonomies.

Mail Notification
With the BuddyForms in build Notification System you can create mail trigger notification for the different post status to let your users and Moderators know, when a new post is ready for moderation or gets approved.

BuddyForms Moderation is the perfect plugin for you if you are in need of a solid frontend post editing moderation management.

It doesn’t matter if you let your users create products or Kitten Story’s. It just work fine with any custom post type related plugin.

The BuddyForms Moderation extension gives you full control of the user submissions without affecting the live version or even giving them the rights to edit a published post.
