[resolved] Contributers should not be able to publish right? (6 posts)

    I'm finishing up a site that will allow many contributers to submit guest posts. When a user signs up, they become "contributers". Problem is, when one of them submits a post and hits "publish"...it actually gets published on the site without admin approval.

    I have tried using the role manager plugin and disabling "publish" but the posts still got published immediately on the site. Am I missing something here?

    The codex says:
    "Contributor - Somebody who can write and manage their posts but not publish posts". This doesn't seem to be the case with my install. Shouldn't all posts written by contributers arrive as unpublished for admin approval?

    Thanks guys. I'm new here and I really appreciate any help!

    Yes that should be the case. Do all contributors have the ability to publish? If you create a new one can they publish by default?

    They shouldn't even see the "Publish" button. There must be something wrong with that installation.

    Ok thanks guys. I'm not sure what went wrong. Yes, they can see the publish button. I'll try a few things and see if I can fix it by simply reinstalling, etc.

    Ok...a tried a new user account and it says "submit for review"...and all seems to be working. Seems the couple users that signed up while I had the role manager plugin installed are able to publish directly...even after I have uninstalled that plugin.
