1. Revisionary – WordPress blog post revision plugin

This little plugin allows your contributors with a new WordPress role, Revisor, to submit revisions for existing posts and pages. A revision can be submitted for both self-published content and posts by other authors.

The head Editor can then approve these revisions and publish them immediately or schedule an update for later.

Revisionary works with Gutenberg and the Classic Editor and supports custom post types.
