Public Post Preview

描述

Share a link to anonymous users to preview a draft of a post (or any other public post type) before it is published.

Have you ever been writing a post with the help of someone who does not have access to your site and needed to give them the ability to preview it before publishing? This plugin takes care of that by generating an URL with an expiring nonce that can be given out for public preview.

Previously this plugin was maintained by Matt Martz and was an idea of Jonathan Dingman. Thanks to Hans Dinkelberg for his photo.

用法

  • To enable a public post preview check the box below the edit post box.
  • The link will be displayed if the checkbox is checked, just copy and share the link with your friends.
  • To disable a preview just uncheck the box.

安装

Note: There will be NO settings page.

For an automatic installation through WordPress:

  1. Go to the ‘Add New’ plugins screen in your WordPress admin area
  2. Search for ‘Public Post Preview’
  3. Click ‘Install Now’ and activate the plugin

For a manual installation via FTP:

常见问题

I can’t find the option for preview links. Where is it?

The checkbox is only available for non-published posts and once a post was saved as a draft.

After some time the preview link returns the message “The link has been expired!”. Why?

The plugin generates an URL with an expiring nonce. By default a link “lives” 48 hours. After 48 hours the link is expired and you need to copy and share a new link which is automatically generated on the same place under the editor.

48 hours are not enough to me. Can I extend the nonce time?

Yes, of course. You can use the filter ppp_nonce_life. Example for 5 days:

add_filter( 'ppp_nonce_life', 'my_nonce_life' );
function my_nonce_life() {
    return 5 * DAY_IN_SECONDS;
}

Or use the Public Post Preview Configurator.

This is a great plugin that should be officially incorporated into WordPress.

I like the plugin, a lot. But it could be SO MUCH better if you could just extend the 48 hours to let's say, a week or even two. Because let's face it, most of us use this tool for clients so that they can see the work, before approving it. The thing is that they receive the preview mail and aren't able to check the preview in such a short time period. Add weekend and different time zones to that, and it makes this plugin pretty much useless because you keep sending preview links back and forth over and over again. The short timeframe makes the plugin so much worse than it could be. I really don't understand this choice. Yes, there is code that you can manually add. But the whole point of a plugin is to stay away from manual coding. And yes, there is also another plugin that lets you extend the preview time. But that means another plugin to keep up-to-date, more drag on the server and increasing security risks. So please. You can make this plugin 90% better just by increasing the timeframe, or letting the user decide the timeframe.

Especially when working with clients or a group of team workers, this plugin makes things a lot easier - many thanks!
