Post Lock

Description

It’s way too easy to accidentally publish or update a post on WordPress.

Post Lock prevents accidental updating or publishing of content by requiring a password to do either.

  • Adds a layer of protection without adding a headache: unlocking a post is a seamless experience and takes a few seconds.
  • Works on all post types (you can easily exclude or include post types with a plugin filter).
  • Simple, solid code.
  • If a post is unlocked, and two beats of the WordPress Heartbeat API happen without action (which is usally 30 seconds, 15 per beat), then the post is re-locked.
  • Numerous plugin filters make it easy to customize the plugin.

Installation

Upload the Post Lock plugin to your blog, activate it, and rejoice.

Reviews

This is one of those hidden gems…

I like the idea behind this plugin. Probably most of us have in the past already accidentally published a post. This is a simple, but very effective way to prevent this from happening.

To the plugin author: Thank you for making this useful plugin available for free. I would just make sure that the plugin declares compatibility with the most recent WordPress version.
