Would like to have Edit Flow and Editorial Calendar plugins as part of our Portland WordCamp Site

Description

The current site for WordCamps is hosted/administrated through the wordpress.org site. This is for the current Portland WordCamp site — http://portland.wordcamp.org/2015/ . Like WordPress.com, you cannot add, even as Admin level, new plug-ins at a WordCamp site. We, the portland wordcamp folk, would like to add the Edit Flow and Editorial Calendar Plug-ins as part of our workflow for this site, so we can use these write up posts in advance and set them with publishing dates. Could the Edit Flow (https://wordpress.org/plugins/edit-flow/) and Editorial Calendar (https://wordpress.org/plugins/editorial-calendar/) plug-ins please be added as functionality to the WordCamp sites hosted through WordPress.org? thank you.

Can you be more specific about your use-case here? From this description, it sounds like you just want drafts and scheduled posts, which are built-in to WordPress.

@samuelsidler — i went back and asked the person requesting these plug-ins for the Meta/WordCamp hosted version of WordPress for our WordCamp Portland Site. here is their response to your query: The usage of either Edit Flow or an Editorial Calendar WordPress Plugin would be to allow easy scheduling through an AJAX-y interface of posts, allowing us to see who is doing what in draft as well as pending and schedule those out with a click and drag. These plug-ins are great and have advanced functionality for scheduling future posts and arranging things to control the publishing outflow. I've found it incredibly helpful with multiple contributor sites as it is more visual than the All Posts list.

@samuelsidler — please let me know if this satisfies your question and if anything can be done to facilitate adding these to the Meta/WordCamp hosted version of WordPress for our WordCamp Portland Site.

  • Keywords needs-patch good-first-bug added
  • Owner set to iandunn
  • Status changed from new to accepted

The Community Team approved this, but before it's added we'll need a couple things:

  • There are a lot of PHP warnings/notices being thrown, which makes it difficult to test the plugin to make sure there aren't any conflicts with other plugins on WordCamp.org -- and that future updates don't create any conflicts -- so those will need to be fixed. There are two issues on GitHub already -- #311 and #321 -- but there are also a lot of other warnings/notices throughout the plugin.
  • We'll network-activate the plugin so that everyone can use it, but we'll need a snippet that we can add to an mu-plugin that will disable all EF modules by default, so that it doesn't have a negative performance impact on sites that don't want to use it. Camps that want to use it can then manually enable whichever modules they'd like.

I was asked to chime in on this and I have described this in more detail https://make.wordpress.org/community/2015/09/29/approval-for-1226-meta-edit-flow/comment-page-1/#comment-21337 in this comment on the Make Community discussion. I requested this and I thought it would be very helpful for assigning tasks and scheduling posts. Thanks.

The notices are fixed now, so I installed Edit Flow. We don't have the snippet to disable modules yet, so it's not network-activated. Camps that want to use it can email support@… to have it activated for their individual site.

This ticket was mentioned in Slack in #meta-wordcamp by coreymckrill. View the logs.

Since Edit Flow is now installed, I'm going to resolve this ticket. The part about disabling the Edit Flow modules by default so the plugin can be network activated is in a new ticket, #3052.
