Re: Article status for maintenance mode, returns HTTP status

Isn’t pending status about the same?

I agree with Pete here. pending means the draft (text) is ready but need some approval – second pair of eyes, some layout and design work, etc.

I have never really understood (except semantics) why txp needs 3 ‘hidden’ statuses.

I don’t remember, the hidden status makes the article 404 from the public side, right? Perhaps it could be repositioned to make it a 307 with appropriate error page?

Security-wise, should not we then disallow low privs users from pending articles modification?

Probably yes? The designer should be allowed to do some work if needed and the top-level users can either sent the article back for editing (draft) or approve for publishing.

Yes, that would give pending status some sense. We would also not sandbox these articles full preview, considering them as approved.
