Whether you have a multi-author blog or a single-author blog, a checklist is something that everyone needs. When writing we often make careless mistakes. Often we go live with those changes and have our users point out the errors. Sometimes the error in the post goes uncaught for weeks. Well that is when you need a checklist can come handy. Checklist can serve as a list of reminders that you set for yourself before you publish a post. Most folks just create a PDF checklist for their authors and send it to them via email. Some utilize services like Google Docs or even a project management platform. In this article, we will show you how to create a blogging checklist in WordPress.
First you need to install and activate the plugin called Blogging Checklist. Upon activation, a new menu “Blogging Checklist” will appear under the Settings tab.
You can add whatever you like in to your checklist. There are examples to copy and paste on the checklist screen. Once you click save changes, then your checklist will be visible on the post write page.
One of the downside of this plugin is that it does not store any of the checklist data. So lets say you did 3 out of 5 things on the checklist and you reload the page, it will reset all boxes. It would be great if this plugin can actually store the data and not let the user hit publish until all boxes are checked.
