WiscWeb - WordPress UW Theme - Enabling a Public Draft Preview

When building a page in the WiscWeb service, there are times when an administrator or editor would like to share the page or post with external users for feedback before publishing the final product. The Public Post Preview plugin allows that functionality to be used.
