Workflow and staging/previewing content

Posted: January 19, 2017 at 6:30 PM Quote #181912
We are investigating nopCommerce's support for the following:

- User roles to set permissions to create, approve, and publish content (pages and catalog data)
- The ability to set publish and unpublish dates for content
- The ability to rollback content
- The ability to preview unpublished content

What, if any, of these features are supported in nopCommerce? Are there any plug-ins that support these features?

If not, any advice on implementing these features in nopCommerce would be welcome.

Thanks!

These features aren't native in NopCommerce. I don't know if they are present in some third-parts plugin.

Nop is primarily an ecommerce platform that has some CMS like features but it's not really a full featured CMS. Having said that some of what you want exists to some extent. There are basically 3 main areas where you can manage
non-product content: Topics, News and Blog

You can add users to specific roles and use the Access Control list (ACL) to define permissions for that role. This tends to be quite high level though so may not provide the degree of granularity you're looking for.

This exists for Products (see available start and end date attributes in advanced mode), News items and blog posts. It doesn't exist for topics but it's not really an issue as they don't get automatically linked from anywhere unlike news items or blog entries.

Doesn't exist.

Users with ManageProducts permissions in ACL can browse to unpublished products. I don't think there's a way to preview blog posts or news items without publishing them (except in the wysiwyg editor that's used to write them). Same with topics except that they wouldn't automatically be linked from anywhere so it's not really a problem to just publish them and browse to the page by url to see what it looks like.
