Posts or pages that are in draft status can be flagged for review using an option called Pending Review. The Gutenberg editor provides this option using a slider. Follow the directions below to learn how to use the Pending Review option in the Gutenberg editor.
Note that your post or page must be in a draft status in order to set the Pending Review flag. If you have published it, then you will not have this option. You can revert a published document to a draft using the link in the top right corner labeled Switch to draft.
- Login to your WordPress Administrator Dashboard.
- Open an existing draft of a page or post in the editor. You can also create a new page or post.
- In the right hand column, click on the slider for Pending Review. This will activate the flag for the review requirement.
- Click on Save Draft to save your changes at this point. Note that clicking on Publish will remove your pending Review flag.
The flag is simply a marker so that you note posts or pages that need review. If you publish the page/post, then the flag will be cleared. This completes the tutorial on setting the Pending Review in the Gutenberg editor.
