How to allow public viewing of unpublished WordPress posts

Public Post Preview plugin

Would you like to show the editor the unpublished material to hear his opinion, so that he checks for errors? WordPress doesn’t allow you to show unpublished content to anyone by default.

Let’s look at an easy way to fix this.

Bloggers and writers often use Google Docs for their work. This service has tools that allow you to conveniently share a document with an editor and content manager. But if you still want to organize this feature at the level of your WordPress site, then consider a simple and convenient way.

How to allow public viewing of posts in WordPress?

First, install the Public Post Preview plugin. It automatically creates a link where you can view the contents of a document that has not yet been published.

The plugin does not require any special settings. Once activated, simply open a draft entry. The Enable public preview option will appear on the right.

Once you activate it, a URL link will be generated that you can share with your colleagues or whoever you collaborate with.

The option is available only for drafts and will disappear after they are published.

Public view works for the old classic editor and Gutenberg.

By default, links expire after 48 hours. Users will then see the message “Link has expired”.

The extension works with posts, pages, and custom post types.
