How can I prevent authors from publishing? (3 posts)

    I have contributors to my site.
    If I get them as contributors then they cant upload an image (thats what they tell me).
    If I make them authors then they will publish their posts before Ive had a chance to approve them.

    Is there a middle ground? Where authors can upload their posts and images WITHOUT being able to publish them?

    If I tell them to save them as drafts then they'll have a tendency to publish accidentally or on purpose.
    I just want them to upload and only publish when I approve it first.

    thanks

    You couldn't find anything over here? Or, maybe this will help? Good luck!

    Take a look at the options table in your blog's database. Once there look at the user_roles option. It would appear you can modify the values of that option to allow contributors to upload images.

    Beyond that, I can't help. I haven't found any documentation yet on what all those codes -- other than the obvious ones! -- mean. I suspect it wasn't really intended that we edit this field, though it can be done.
