Learning about Desks:
Desks are like special folders for stories, but they're different from normal WordPress 'categories' in two ways:
- Desks have a permissions system: your team can only create new articles in desks they have permissions to; read more in A Guide to Permissions ; and
- You can’t put a story in multiple desks.
Why Can a Story Be in Just One Desk?
There are two reasons:
- It helps you enforce a good content strategy: Desks are like the big topics your blog covers. Every story should fit in one desk to make sure all your stories are focused and going the right way.
- When you have more than 500 stories, desks make it easier to search for old stories. They work like the folders on your computer.
What if I want to give an article multiple desks?
Let anyone join a desk (remove the desk permissions feature)
To let anyone create new articles in a desk, set the desk to open access in desk settings.
