Showing results for tags 'Publish Status'.
The basic Processwire workflow assumes that I (as an Editor) want to save new Pages in draft mode - and therefore new pages are always set to unpublished by default. To publish the page, it is necessary to actively press "Publish", otherwise the Page will not be visible. The workflow is: Add new Page Status is now "Unpublished: Not visible on site." Press Publish - the page is now visible on site I want to publish pages right away (without having to press Publish). Where is that configured? ProcessWire 3.0.123 Uikit v3 admin theme (0.3.0)
Here comes a change proposal for the default Admin Theme ("ProcessWire 2.x Admin Markup Template" by Ryan): When a (novice) editor edits an unpublished page, the Save-button on the page says "Publish" and changes the status to Published if the contents is changed. http://www.example.com/admin/page/edit/?id=1033 In my experience novice editors too easily publish unpublished draft pages by mistake ("What's on this page? Oh, I better get back to Pages. [The user clicks Publish to get back to Pages]"). Better workflow: 1. Page top shows a "This page is currently unpublished"-notification - as now. 2. To publish the page, uncheck [x]-Unpublished. (Even better: Check [x]-Published.) 3. The Save-button only saves the page ... without assumptions about what the user intends to do. 4. On Pages, the user can bulk-change Publication status by checking [x]-Published and selecting "Action: Publish page" (like Drupal). PS: Also - I find it more natural if the Publish status was changed: * actual: " Unpublished: Not visible on site" * better: "[x] Published: Visible on site"
