=== Persistent Forking (WordPress plugin) === Contributors: UUDigitalHumanitiesLab Tags: forking, forks, posts Requires at least: 4.0 Tested up to: 4.3 License: MIT License URI: http://opensource.org/licenses/MIT Enable contributors to create permanent forks of existing posts. Visualise the family of any fork. == Description == Persistent Forking allows contributors of your site to create permanent "forks" of existing posts. Every fork is a full-fledged post in its own right and can be published as such. This distinguishes Persistent Forking from the *Post Forking* plugin, where forks are a collaborative tool in order to arrive at a single definitive version. The parent-child relationships between posts are tracked and it is possible to visualise the entire family tree of a post. == Installation == Just copy the plugin to your wp-content/plugins directory, then enable the plugin in your admin panel. == Screenshots == 1. Forking controls are added to the top of every post. This is only visible for members of your site who can create posts. 2. When you click the "Fork" control, a new post is created and you are redirected to the editing form. The direct parent and the family are displayed in a metabox (red circle). The title of the parent post is copied with "[fork]" in front. As you can see, post contents are not copied over to the fork. 3. When you click the "Show family" control, all parent-child relations within the family are displayed in a tree diagram. You can click on a node to go to the corresponding post. == Support == Please report any issue that you find while using the plugin at our GitHub repository: https://github.com/UUDigitalHumanitieslab/persistent-forking/issues The first priority of the Digital Humanities Lab is to service requests from Humanities researchers at Utrecht University. However, the plugin is open source with a liberal license, so anyone can provide a patch if we don't follow up on your issue.
