Extended Post Status


This plugin provides the option to add new statuses to the backend and define the system relevant status settings. You can add/edit statuses just as categories or tags. All statuses are available for all your post types.

You will find a new menu item located in the settings admin menu.

  1. Upload to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Use the new menu item Statuses in posts menu


How does this plugin work?

As there is no core hook to add new items to the status dropdown in posts and in the quick edit view, js is required to achieve this. It is definently the most dirty way, but WP Core does not provide other ways to do it.

There is an open trac ticket fo this circumstance:

What happens when I delete a status or deactivate the plugin?

Be careful, posts without a valid status will be hidden! Just change the status of your post with a custom status to a system status (e.g. publish or draft) before you delete a custom status or deactivate the plugin.
Your posts will never be deleted, but you need to know your old status slugs once you have deleted a status or deactivated the plugin to get your posts back.

Why is a hidden status still visible in dropdowns?

The “Hide in admin drop downs” option only hides the status if the current post doesn’t have the status. As long as your post has the hidden status, the drop down will still show it.

Simple, straightforward with clear explanations. My coding attempts at creating custom post statuses went nowhere until I found this plugin. Go under Settings to find Extended Post Status and experience the magic.

I didn't want to change core wp-includes/posts.php file every time I updated WordPress. This did the trick and is easy to use. Thank you!
