Have you ever found a need to get a second opinion on your post that hasn’t been published? If so, then you probably had to create a demo account for this new user on your site, or you had to send them a text version of your article. Both of those ways are pretty inefficient. In this article, we will show you how to enable public post preview of your unpublished posts in WordPress by giving a special link to an anonymous user.
First thing you need to do is install and activate the plugin called Public Post Preview.
Now when you are writing a post, you should see an additional meta box called Public Post Preview. If you check the enable public preview box, then you will be given a URL which you can share with anyone you like.
You can easily disable the public preview by unchecking the box.
Possible Use Cases
- You are writing a post with the help of someone else who does not have access to your blog and needed to give them the ability to preview it before publishing.
- You have guest posters, but you don’t like to give them an account. You made some edits to their final work. You can show it to them for their approval before publishing.
- Early bird access to special members of your site.
