Edit Flow
[resolved] Quick edit shows different options than edit page (7 posts)

    Hi we are testing out edit flow but are experiencing the odd glitch:

    When viewing a post in the quick edit view, you can see a drop down of all the status's . In the edit view, there is just the option to submit for review. One of them is in error surely? presumably the quick view one?

    Hey Will,
    Could you post or link to screenshots for each view?

    Thanks,

    Daniel

    Thanks for the screenshots. The statuses should definitely not be added to the Quick View. We'll make sure to fix that for the next release.

    Hey Will,
    I took a slightly different route for this and would appreciate hearing what you think. Rather than hide the post status dropdown completely on Quick Edit, I've modified it such that the 'Published' status no longer shows up for users who don't have the permission to publish posts. Per another seemingly contradictory request on the forum, it seems like it'd be better to allow contributors to participate in the entire editorial workflow, but without the ability to publish.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks,

    Daniel

    This was a problem for me as well. If only users with the ability to publish can utilize the custom post statuses in the edit screen, it limits the uses of custom statuses. If the ability to use each status could be assigned to each user role as necessary, the possibilities would be greatly expanded.

    For example, I have two levels of editors in one site. Section Editors cannot publish, but I would like to create a custom status for them to bump posts from "Pending Review" to the Managing Editor (who then would takes it from that second review level to "Submitted to Publish" so the Publisher knows it is ready. Right now, I can't use two levels of review statuses because the Section Editors can't access the custom statuses.
