It’s been a while since I’ve been so excited about a plugin. Enough that it inspired me to write a post about it.

I’ve always wanted to share drafts of posts with people before I publish them but didn’t want to bother them with “can you log in, look at the post and let me know if there are any changes.” Now I just send a private URL and they can look over the draft without logging in! You can also set the expiration date of the draft URL so you have control over how long the link is available for.

There is one annoying thing about this plugin though: if you are logged in, then the draft is blank and you can’t read it.

I totally think the sharing drafts via URL functionality should be integrated into the next version of WordPress.

Here’s the plugin I used, aptly called… Share a Draft.
