Summary of this tutorial:

Start by installing and activating the Revisionize plugin.

Once activated you need to visit Posts, All Posts and there will be a new edit option called Revisionize when hovering over a post.

When you select Revisionize it will clone the post and allow you to edit it like any other draft, you can save the changes and as long as you do not publish you can take as much time as you like to edit it as long as you do not publish the post.

Once you click the publish button the plugin will then replace your live post with the new version.

The draft will be stored as a revision draft allowing you to reuse it again to edit the same post should you like to edit the post again.

How to update a live WordPress page or post without de-publishing it
Veronique Schweitzer

Hi Cynthia, you can certainly create a new draft page instead of using Revisionize. In that case, when you are ready to publish it on your site, you’d want to either copy and paste the content into your original page, or delete your original page, including deleting it from the “Trash”, and re-use the same page slug (the page’s name in the URL, like “update-live-wordpress-page-post” on this page). The point of either of these methods would be to avoid losing the search engine optimization value you’d have already established with your existing page. In a nutshell, you don’t want Google to forget about your existing page just because you changed a couple of lines. A third method to retain your existing SEO value would be to use your new page name / slug, but create a 301 redirect from the old URL to the new one.
