[Plugin: Edit Flow] Custom Post Status (3 posts)

    Hello,

    I have been testing the Edit Flow plugin and am searching for a way to allow certain users to be able to change the post status without having the permission to publish a post. I found this closed forum thread which addresses it to some extent, but was wondering if the feature has been added?

    I do see that you can change this using the "Quick Edit" feature of a post, but when I actually edit the post via the main post interface, there's no option to change the post status when a user lacks the "publish_posts" permission.

    Many thanks.

    Nope, it's unfortunately a limitation of WordPress code we haven't gotten around to working around yet.

    I have two possible fixes outlined and would love to hear what you think of them on that thread.

    Hi Daniel,

    I posted to the other forum topic. I think the second of your two suggestions would work great!

    Thanks.
