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.
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!).
IMO this should be an option in the core for TXP5
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.
Hmm, updated to sed_default_article_status 0.3.8
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…

Hope that helps.
Is installed: sed_default_article_status 0.3.8
Updated to: 0.4.11
Deinstallation: OK (no pref, ‘live’ status is default)
Shouldn’t ‘draft’ be the active default status after installation & activation?
