Publisher Lite is the workflow only version of Publisher. It does not support multiple languages, but you get all the other benefits of Publisher.

Check out the full version of Publisher for multi-lingual support.

Publisher Lite lets you create drafts of your entries, categories, and content phrases. No other module, or combination of modules, will compare to Publisher, and it is the closest ExpressionEngine will ever get to native draft support. You will never manage your content the same way in ExpressionEngine again.

  • Preview your drafts in the control panel
  • View the differences in your text between published and draft versions of your content
  • Basic content approval process. Users can be assigned as a publisher or editor. Editors can not save content as open/published and must be approved by a publisher.
  • and more!

Publisher requires the following:

  • ExpressionEngine 2.8+
  • PHP 5.3+

The following 3rd party add-ons are natively supported by Publisher, but they must be of the versions noted:

  • Structure 3.3+
  • Matrix 2.3+
  • Playa 4.2+
  • Assets 2.0+

Brian is amazing!  The add-on is excellent and his support takes it over the top.  He answered countless questions and even added a variable I needed to the codebase in a matter of minutes (literally).  For publishing workflows this is my new go-to module.
