This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



On a busy site you can’t afford to make changes to live, published posts without reviewing and approving them first. Revisionize clones your post, page or CPT to a draft that gives you the freedom to tweak, edit and experiment with the content. Preview your drafted changes and/or share the preview with a 3rd party to approve the changes. When you’re happy, publish the revision, which will copy your content changes to the original post. Alternatively, schedule the revision to publish your content at a specific time.

Compatible with

Known Issues

  • Gutenberge. Revisionize is not compatible with the default Gutenberg editor. You must install the Classic Editor plugin.
  • WP Recipe Maker. There have been reported issues that indicate Revisionize does not work with this plugin. However, we could not verify these reports. Use at your own risk.
  • Some plugins store content in their own database tables, which Revisionize knows nothing about. It’s possible that publishing a revision will not save changes for these types of plugins. Revisionize will only work with content stored in the wp_posts and wp_postmeta tables.

Please post in the support section for help before leaving a negative review!


  • Revisionize a post
  • Alternate way to Revisionize
  • A Revision. Save as many drafts as you wish. Preview the post to see how it looks. Or delete it if you don’t want it. When the revision is published, it will overwrite its original. But don’t worry, the original is saved as another revision (for a backup).
  • Schedule multiple revisions/variations to be published consecutively. The URL of the post stays the same, the content will just update at the scheduled time. No redirects or messing around with slugs.
  • The original post is kept around as a revision just in case you want to revert back to the way things were.

There is no support for Gutenberg nor plans to support it, as confirmed by the author. I do appreciate author’s clarity but cannot recommend the plugin with this major handicap

This plugin completely messes with Yoast and basically throws out all your meta tags and redirects. Unfortunately I won’t be able to use it. Otherwise what it does do should have been included in the wordpress editor. I’m not sure how I’ll get along without it any more.

This was so close to making me ecstatic. Unfortunately, lack of Gutenberg editor support is a deal-breaker. I would gladly pay for this feature if a premium version is released with this ability.

We have a workflow requirement where content is updated on a weekly basis and should be published on a Saturday evening on the same page/URL. Without this plugin, it would mean having to manually do it every time… on a Saturday evening… which is not fun. With this plugin, we can even set up scheduled content for weeks to come. Kudos!

This plugin solves a problem with approval workflow that has plagued WordPress for a long, long time. Kudos for providing the community with a solution, and congratulations on the perfect review scores!
