Basic workflow

Post vs. Submission

Snax workflow is based on two main concepts, Posts and Submissions. Before further reading, you should first get to know what they are and what's the main difference between them.

Posts - you can think of them as standard Wordpres posts. Besides plugin related options, they work in pretty much the same way.
Example: User creates new "Open List". Other users may contribute to it.

Submissions - children of a post. They are similar, in behaviour, to posts but cannot exist alone.
Example: User adds new "Submission" to an existing open list.

Add new post

Here's how the standard submission process, from post creation to final approval, works:

  1. User clicks the "+ Create" button.
  2. Choose one of available formats (e.g. Create open list).
  3. Upload images or add embeds.
  4. Fill required fields and submit a post for a review.
  5. Now, the submitted post is waiting for your approval in the review queue.
  6. At this stage, only you (as administrator) and post author (as owner) have access to it.
  7. Until you publish this post, it won't be publicly accessible for all other visitors.
  8. To allow direct publishing, please read the Users permissions section.

Add new submission

Here are steps involved in new contribution process:

  1. User visits one of the existing open lists.
  2. After all items, there's a new item form.
  3. User uploads an image or adds an embed.
  4. Fill required fields and submit an item for a review.
  5. Now, the submitted item is waiting for your approval in the review queue.
  6. At this stage, only you (as administrator) and item author (as owner) have access to this item.
  7. Until you publish this item, it won't be publicly accessible for all other visitors.
  8. To allow direct publishing, please read the Users permissions section.
