Allowing Authors To Revise Published Posts
There is no doubt that WordPress is a powerful blogging platform but thanks to its regular installation it doesn’t come fully equipped the way it has to be for multi-author blogs. If you are running a multi-author blog, then it is highly required to increase the workflow for authors giving them an extra mile of efficiency.
To letting this happen, you need to install and activate the plugin name Revisionary. Once it got activated, a whole new menu option will get added under Settings >> Revisionary. Although the default settings will work as a complete tool for lots of blogs, but still if your require something more, it would be best to review the settings and see if you need to add or change something.
Once you are done with installation, you will see that the plugin will create a new user role, called Revisor. Now, here you get a choice on to assign this role to an existing user or create a new user with the Revisor role. The Revisor role user can edit posts as revision and on completion they can submit it for review.
