I just recently got a new job as a web admin. They’re currently using a very complex CMS (closed source and expensive) that’s complete overkill for their (our) needs. It means there’s a huge cost in time and paid training every time a new person needs to learn to update content or, in cases like mine, manage the entire website.
I’d like to make a case to them, that we should at least seriously consider a switch to WordPress, for all the reasons you’re all familiar with.
However, one of the key things I’ve never done (and I’ve done a lot with WP) that might pose a concern is a workflow to allow certain users or groups of users to only edit/update certain content according to their division, etc.
I found a couple of good plugins, one of which should work to manage the approval process (myself and the PR guy have to approve design and written content, respectively).
BUT I can’t seem to find any good plugins to manage who can edit certain pages, their sub-pages, etc. I did find “Press Permit” which has a addon that allows you to do this: http://presspermit.com/tutorial/page-editing-exceptions/. However, the entire Press Permit plugin just seems really clunky and way more complicated than it needs to be. Does anyone else know of any plugins that allow you to control who can edit specific pages/posts/etc???
The Groups plugin and various member plugins do very good at managing who can see content on the front end, but I need similar functionality for who can edit certain content on the back-end.
