Publish New Pages by Default in Admin Interface

Recommended Posts

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workflow assumes that I (as an Editor) want to save new Pages in draft mode - and therefore new pages are always set to unpublished by default.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:

  1. Add new Page
  2. Status is now "Unpublished: Not visible on site."
  3. 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)

You may rename the Save and Publish buttons... 😉

The first "save" only creates the page in page tree and assigns the template to it. You can not actually enter any content upon page creation, so keeping the page unpublished seems very reasonable to me. Maybe the Save button could be named "Create" to better reflect what happens. At this moment the page really should not be published automatically, since it may contain required fields, where your template code rely on.

With the template assigned, you'll have fields to enter content and see the Publish button. After entering the data you press "Publish", which effectively is "Save+Publish" in this case. I don't see an extra step to publish a page after entering its content, since this already is the default.

Only in case the selected template does not have additional fields you'll see additional Save+Publish buttons. Are we talking about this situation?

if you have $config->advanced = true in your site/config.php file, then you'll see some addtl. fields in template > advanced:

dont-allow-unpublished-pages.PNG.e93c5a081d46abe7fe414962f3bfbe8b.PNG

Although I would also be careful with that.

Putting this in your ready.php or admin.php should do it. You may want to add additional checks for admin only (not via API).

$this->addHookAfter('Pages::added', function($event) {
    $p = $event->arguments[0];
    $p->removeStatus('unpublished');
    $p->save();
});

But, @Autofahrn has some excellent points about publishing a page which doesn't have any content other than the title, so use this with caution!

Excellent suggestions. Thanks to all.
@adrian, your solution works like a charm:

  1. Press New
  2. Set Title and Name (Template is currently unassigned)
  3. Press "Save" - Page now gets published with the chosen template, all template fields are blank.

Setting pages to unpublished is still possible.
This is how I want the flow.

      Hey!
      I've been working on a Processwire installation (3.0.123) for a few days now and I must have made a big mistake this morning because the links in the admin's main menu no longer appear.
      This is not related to the admin theme, because the bug occurs with all themes (Default, Reno, Uikit).
      I tried to reinstall with the dev version (3.0.136), but the problem is still there. I also uninstalled all the modules I had added, without success. There is no error in the js console. 
      I still can access/view/edit the pages  by going through the admin/page list.
      Thanks in advance for your help!

      Hello everyone!
      I have searched the forum for quite a long time and I tried some solutions for my topic but nothing seems to work.
      I need to create a Settings Page and for a native feeling I want to create it under the main navigation on top. The settings page should hold the Main Logo, some styling and other settings. As I said nothing seems to work for me. I tried to create a Page under Admin with Admin Template and ProcessPageEdit but then I can't assign an image field. 
      I don't want to write a module because it is to much work for only 3 settings.
      I hope someone of the forum could help me out!
      Have a nice day!

      Inspired by this thread with a little nugget based on AOS by @benbyf to visually distinguish development systems from production ones, I wrote a small module that does the same and lets you adapt colors and text.
      Link to the github repo:
      AdminDevModeColors
      Version 0.0.1 is still very alpha and only tested on PW 3.0.124.
      Description
      This module lets you change the color for the top toolbar and add a small piece of text for development systems, so you are immediately you aren't working on production (and vice versa). The adaptions are made through pure CSS and applied if either the "Enable DEV mode" checkbox in the module's configuration is checked or the property $config->devMode is set to true in site/config.php.
      Works with Default, Reno and Uikit admin themes (though probably needs a lot of testing with different versions still).
      Since a screenshot says more than thousand words...
      Production system (unchanged):

      Dev system (Default admin theme):

      Dev system (Reno admin theme):

      Dev system (Uikit admin theme):

      Feel free to leave any feedback here and report any problems either in this thread or the github issue tracker.

      I have a website that allows users to create their personal "website" (a page with sub-pages).
      Users shall be able to:
      Log in (frontend and/or admin), Edit "their" page(s) - I am using the "Page Edit Per User"-module (https://modules.processwire.com/modules/page-edit-per-user/) to grant access to the relevant pages Create child pages - possible? Users shall not be able to see other pages in the admin interface - "Admin Restrict Page Tree" may do the trick (https://modules.processwire.com/modules/admin-restrict-page-tree/)? Frontend editing shall be possible - I am considering "Fredi" (https://modules.processwire.com/modules/fredi/) for this. The challenge is that it takes a lot of modules and configuration.
      Is there a way to set this up that doesn't require a lot of configuration for each new user?
