One of the key features of a corporate CMS is the ability to update pages after they have been published. Part of this update process is to send out the updated pages for review before they are pushed “live.” Out of the box, WordPress (WP) does not do this.
Using WordPress out of the box, once you “publish” a web page, it is live. If you then return to the page in edit mode and update the page, you are actually changing the live published version. To the left is the “Publish” panel on the WP edit page.
When a new user first looks at this, they are tempted to think the solution is to change the page’s status from “published” back to “draft” or some other status. But doing so will remove the page from the live site. Not exactly a desired outcome.
