I'm going to add the ability to edit a post (and it's metadata) after it
has been published but not to take affect immediately (meaning an editor
or admin will have to approve the changes). I'm going to add all the
necessary new capabilities and custom post_status, and build off the
existing auto_save and revisions system in WP. I want to do this as
cleanly as possible - model it on the way existing systems work in WP core.
Is there any info that might help with this - history on previous
attempts at it, etc.?
Here is a quick initial stab at some of the data stuff:
I'm guessing I'll need to add:
Alternatively, for custom post types:
Or it might require both, I'm not sure yet - and I'll be essentially
modifying the" after publish revision" (for lack of a better term) to
match an auto-draft (post_status) or a revision (post_type) by resetting
the post_name, and post_parent fields.
I'm just starting this process, and will be testing various things today.
