What actually is CMSimpleCoAuthors?

When I presented the project in the CMSimple forum, there was a heated discussion about what actually is CoAuthors for now or what it should be.

A MultiUser System? Does CMSimple, basically a single user system, need it?

Is CMSimpleCoAuthors a MultiUser System?

Not really, because from a multiuser system it is expected, that users can create pages and publish themselves, according to their rights. That's not possible with CoAuthors. The contents, created by the author, have to be published by the administrator of the public website.

The author can write, but not publish.

What is CMSimpleCoAuthors?

It's simple: It is an authors system. As in real life: The author writes, the publisher publishes.

So it is a publishing and authoring system. Is there really such a thing already, or did I invent something entirely new?

Back to Reality

But I think, the real usage will be to simulate a limited MultiUser System.
