Re: sed_default_article_status

Love sed_default_article_status. Thanks!

OK Installed & activated
Checked publish options and it shows 4
I thought 1 would be default?
Changed to 1 and everything looks fine

Note/FYI: I am using upm_savenew (0.4.2) from Mary Fredborg (“Save New” button for articles and forms). The “Save New” function is unchanged = “Save New” as ‘live’ and it stays ‘live’ so you still have to change the status manually before “Save New”.
Not sure if this behavior of upm_savenew can be changed somehow.

Re: sed_default_article_status

This is great, just installed on all my Textpattern sites. IMO this should be an option in the core for TXP5 since I’m always getting clients accidentally putting half-written articles live on their sites (for which I get moaned at of course!).

+1

Or even 4.4.x.

I get, and like, the simplicity of the concept of having the work flow being write page/publish by default. But given Txp’s team publishing paradigm I’ve been puzzled why draft wasn’t default, or at least an option for default.

Re: sed_default_article_status

Hmm, updated to sed_default_article_status 0.3.8

  • activated sed_default_article_status
  • going to write … draft is active: OK
  • going to options: still the free-form text input box and no proper status select control
  • Logging out & in again
  • going to options: still the free-form text input box and no proper status select control

Reproducible?

Re: sed_default_article_status

Hi Markus,

thanks for the feedback. I’ll see if I can reproduce that here.

Re: sed_default_article_status

Yes, indeed, looks like the set_pref call doesn’t work quite the way I thought.

This will only be a problem for those of you going from v0.2 -> v0.3. Fresh installs should be fine. In the meantime, please could you try this work-around…

  1. Go to Admin > Plugins & delete sed_default_article_status.
  2. Reinstall and enable.

Hope that helps.

Re: sed_default_article_status

Is installed: sed_default_article_status 0.3.8
Updated to: 0.4.11

  • activated sed_default_article_status
  • going to write … draft is active: OK
  • going to options: still the free-form text input box and no proper status select control

Deleted 0.4.11
Deinstallation: OK (no pref, ‘live’ status is default)

Reinstalled 0.4.11

  • activated
  • write: ‘live’ is active (?)
  • changed drop-down in admin prefs to ‘draft’
  • write: ‘draft’ is active

Shouldn’t ‘draft’ be the active default status after installation & activation?
