Better Workflow Draft v1.1

Create notes that only show for better workflow drafts or only show on the live site.  This must be used inside the exp:channel:entries tag to work properly.


  • draft
    • preview - default, will show only for any preview whether or not it is a draft (anytime “Save and Preview” is used the view).  If there are multiple channel entries rows returned, this will show in every row.
    • draft, on - will show only for a previewed draft (drafts are unpublished versions of live entries).  If there are multiple channel entries returned, this will only show in the row that is the draft.
    • live, off - will show only for views on the live website.  It will not show at all if “Save and Preview” was used to view the preview.
  • parse

    • inward - will cause the tags inside to not be parsed if the test fails



{exp:betterworkflow_draft parse=“inward”}You are viewing a betterworkflow preview.{/exp:betterworkflow_draft}

{exp:betterworkflow_draft parse=“inward” draft=“draft”}You are viewing a betterworkflow draft.{/exp:betterworkflow_draft}

{exp:betterworkflow_draft parse=“inward” draft=“live”}You are viewing on the website.{/exp:betterworkflow_draft}



* Altered preview detection to use BWF 1.5 built in variable
* You may now use instead of this plugin; however, the plugin may still be useful for ensuring inner tags don’t get processed (simple vs advanced conditionals)
* Fixed a bug with BWF 1.4 Integration
* Fixed a php error
* Fixed a bug with the way previews are handled and changed the draft parameter values
* The default value has changed and is now to show for any preview not just a draft
* Initial Release
