    I’m working on a new logo for post forking to use on the stickers and t-shirts that supports will be receiving. I’ve got three concepts so far. What do you think?




    • Pippin Williamson 3:50 pm on October 3, 2013 Permalink

      I’m not very fond of any of them, but I like the second the best. Perhaps put “Post” and “Forking” closer together with the height of the arrows the same height as the two words?

    • Will Schmierer 3:52 pm on October 3, 2013 Permalink

      I agree with Pippin, I actually like the banner on indiegogo better, but #2 out of these 3 for sure

    • Aaron Jorbin 4:02 pm on October 3, 2013 Permalink

      I’ve gotten zero positive initial reactions to the arrowed letters. Here are three more concepts based on not having arrowed letters.




    • Will Schmierer 4:39 pm on October 3, 2013 Permalink

      I prefer #1personally, I like the clean lines on each side. Like Brian Richards rough draft earlier as well.

    • Aaron Jorbin 5:01 pm on October 3, 2013 Permalink

      Brian Richards, has also put together a couple of ideas. and

      If anyone else has ideas, please share them.

      • ericandrewlewis 6:32 pm on October 3, 2013 Permalink

        These are legit!

        I’m also a big fan of the former Post Forking plugin header, which is in the same aesthetic vein.

        • Aaron Jorbin 12:11 am on October 4, 2013 Permalink

          No matter what we end up with, I don’t think I’ll change the plugin header any time soon. That is way to complicated and colorful to serve as a logo though.

      • mordauk 7:51 pm on October 3, 2013 Permalink

        I like Brian’s second idea.

      What about these:

    • Peter Knight 2:35 pm on October 9, 2013 Permalink

      Ah yes, I was thinking to myself, don’t try spending time on a logo if you suck at logos. But then I’ve done all my logos myself and they suck. But still, there has to be someone who’s a designer/logo designer who uses the post forking plugin who might be able to pitch in?

  • Aaron Jorbin 5:06 pm on October 2, 2013 Permalink

    I’ve identified ten tickets for 0.3.

    One of them, #84 is a large ticket will be accomplished over multiple releases. The biggest piece of it will be accomplished in #38, #37, and #97

    If you want to help, jump on those tickets with comments. I’m also hanging out in the #wp-postforking room on if you want to chat.

    v0.3 development is going to be starting soon. Let’s kick things off with an old fashion open thread here to suggest features.

    I want 0.3 to be focused on the experience of post forking. This means and will be my biggest priorities, but I’d like to here what everyone thinks. We will also continue to improve the unit tests and fixing outstanding issues.

    Post below with your thoughts on what you want to see in 0.3. We will do an IRC soon as well to finalize the goals for 0.3

  • Aaron Jorbin 12:12 am on September 20, 2013 Permalink  

    v0.2 was released last week. A fundraising campaign is also underway for the continued development.

    I’ve created a v0.2 milestone, as I’ll be doing some work on this in order to add it to our VIP shared plugins repo. Austin Smith (@netaustin) may also be using it for a project and incorporating some post meta forking functionality.

      Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple,
      yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and appearance. I must say that you’ve done
      a fantastic job with this. In addition, the blog loads super
      quick for me on Safari. Excellent Blog!

  • Aaron Jorbin 7:50 pm on October 8, 2012 Permalink  

    I’ve created an IRC channel on freenode( #wp-postforking ). I’ll idle in it to keep it alive.

    @benbalter / @danielbachhuber Would you be interested in having an IRC chat to go over the roadmap for what is needed for 0.2 ?

    • Daniel Bachhuber 7:52 pm on October 8, 2012 Permalink

      Yes, that would be lovely. Tomorrow or Wednesday afternoon PT work fine for me

    • Aaron Jorbin 7:54 pm on October 8, 2012 Permalink

      My schedule is pretty open on both days.

    • Benjamin J. Balter 8:07 pm on October 19, 2012 Permalink

      Woah. Not sure how this got past me. Apologies. Very much for this. Just let me know when are where. Most of the weekend works, if not next week?

    @benbalter should we use the Google Group you created as a public email list for the commit log? Github doesn’t yet support this natively, so we need to set up a mailing list somewhere.

    Any thoughts on branches in terms of development? All for proper feature branching/merging. In the past, I’ve kept master in sync with .org’s SVN to avoid confusion for folks that stumble across the project for google, etc., and did most of the work in a `develop` branch, but up for others’ expertise. Thoughts?

    • Daniel Bachhuber 11:13 am on October 1, 2012 Permalink

      I used to follow the master/develop approach but then decided it wasn’t offering much value, was a pain to maintain, and made things painful when users wanted to submit pull requests

    Introducing Post Forking for WordPress 

    WordPress sets out to democratize publishing, and today the CMS gains an important new feature to that end: Post Forking.

    WordPress Post Forking allows users to “fork” or create an alternate version of content and in doing so, sets out to foster a more collaborative approach to WordPress content curation. This can be used, for example, to allow external users (such as visitors to your site) or internal users (such as other authors) with the ability to submit proposed revisions. It can even be used on smaller or single-author sites to enable post authors to edit published posts without their changes appearing immediately. If you’re familiar with Git, or other decentralized version control systems, you’re already familiar with WordPress post forking.

    How might you use it?

    • Allowing users without edit or publish post capabilities to edit and submit changes to content (similar to GitHub’s pull request system)
    • Collaborative editing (by resolving two users’ conflicted saves – Wired’s example)
    • Saving draft changes of already-published content
    • Scheduling pending changes to already-published content

    Why this plugin?

    How does it work?

    When a user without the edit_post capability attempts to edit a given post, WordPress will automatically create a “fork” or alternate version of the post which they can freely edit. The edit screen will look just like the standard post editing interface that they are used to. When they’re done, they simply click “submit for review.” At this point, the fork goes into the standard WordPress moderation queue (just like any time an author without the publish_post capability submits a post), where an editor can review, and potentially approve the changes for publishing. If the changes can be automatically merged, the original post will be updated, otherwise, the editor will be presented with the ability to resolve the conflicting changes. All this is done using WordPress’s built-in custom post type, revision, and diff functionality, so it should look familiar to most WordPress users.


    Download the plugin from the WordPress plugin repository, or fork the project on GitHub, or for more information, visit the Post Forking project wiki.

    This version constitutes an initial release designed to showcase the plugin’s core functionality and is intended to be improved upon with additional features and refinements as the project evolves. Please consider contributing your time to help improve the project.

    • Deven Pitcher 1:30 pm on October 1, 2012 Permalink

      A better wiki interface?

    • Michael 1:33 pm on October 1, 2012 Permalink

      Very good plugin idea!

    • Chris K. 4:07 pm on October 1, 2012 Permalink

      This a really timely plugin. Thanks for making it available.

      In addition to Benjamin’s post on the subject, it’s worth looking at a project that came out of last summer’s Knight-Mozilla Learning Lab that has several similar aspects:

    • cars 5:21 pm on May 30, 2013 Permalink

      It is hard to dispute the fact that car shopping is a stressful,
      anxiety-ridden task for many individuals. The sheer size of the expenditure involved and the
      myriad of choices on the market make the need for education and information quite
      critical. Fortunately, the tips below can make the process far simpler than you may have believed.

      Good post. I am dealing with a few of these issues as well.


  • Ben Balter 10:51 pm on September 30, 2012 Permalink

    We’re all set with .org (get it? It’s a fork?), and both the GitHub repo and this P2 are now public. I’ve got a short post queued up for first thing tomorrow morning, and tagged v0.1 in both GIt and SVN.
