Public Preview of Drafts feature added to ASF Roller instance
Posted on: 2009-07-15 06:59:48+00:00
**Note**: Until June, 2023, the ASF supported using Apache Roller for project blogs. That support has ended. Please visit Project Blog for more information about blogs for projects.
Previously, to be able to preview a draft post by any Roller Blog, one had to be a member user of that blog.
For those that would like an easy way to post previews of drafts for lazy consensus or voting, a script has been setup to allow the preview url that Roller generates to be shared publicly. For example:
(roller preview url)
(public preview url)
A typical process is to create the blog post, set it up to publish in 3-4 days via the "Advanced Settings", then post the modified preview URL to your dev@ list with the anticipated publish date for lazy consensus.
Projects must opt-in by adding the "preview" user with "Limited" access.
