Do you have a blog post or story that’s not quite ready for the public? With WordPress, it’s easy to share your draft with others so they can give feedback on what needs more work.

If you’re writing a blog post or web page, and also want a person to see a sneak peek of your work prior to releasing it, they’ll need to log in to your site, since sharing drafts is not a default feature in WordPress.

If you don’t wish to make a brand-new WordPress account for them, then you’ll need to utilize a plugin to share a draft with whomever you desire.

Make use of the “Public Post Preview” plugin to share drafts.

The Public Post Preview plugin for WordPress generates a special link that you can share with anyone you desire, and they’ll be able to see your draft.

Then copy the link and share it with whomever you desire.

To disable the link, making it unavailable, just uncheck the Enable public preview box.

By default, the link only lasts 48 hours. If you still need it after it expires,  simply create a new link, like you did the first time.

That’s it.
