Collaborative editing in WordPress: Poetica

poetica logotype

Poetica is a collaborative editor for WordPress content creation

While WordPress has the ability to have a contributor write and an editor edit- what happens when you have multiple people who want to work on a single post- together in real time, without having to be locked out- or redundant. Enter Poetica:

Poetica is an intuitive text editor that makes it easy for you to work with others on copy and content.

Other than stealing their entire home page- I don’t really know how to explain it to you. It also has Slack integration- if you don’t know about Slack- this video is really well done- and explains Slack pretty well. We can’t emphasize enough how important it is for every software app to do a video for this very reason (you listening Poetica?)

And in case you are wondering- “Slack is free to use for as long as you want and with an unlimited number of people” and so is Poetica.

Collaboration is what makes the web wonderful. Tools like Slack and Poetica are a big step in the right direction.

  1. Hey David – thanks for flagging us up to your readers!

    Totally hear you on the video explainer – there will be one soon 🙂

    We actually plan to integrate Poetica even more tightly into WordPress over the next few weeks and soon you’ll be able to use our collaborative text editor INSIDE WordPress. It will augment the native WordPress editor at first, but our plan is to fully replace it eventually.

    Let me know if you’d like to try out a pre-release version 🙂

  2. Hi James- we think what you are doing is awesome. We understand the need- but, our current workflows don’t require collaborative editing.
    And – if you need help with the video explainer- we can do that if you’d like!
