[resolved] Auto Draft to custom status default (4 posts)

    WordPress's "auto-draft" is creating a problem.

    We removed "draft" status, because we didn't want it as part of our edit flow. WordPress has a status called "auto-draft" that it saves automatically when someone writes. If the writer doesn't click "save", and just closed the page, it will stay in the database, but you can't find it in the Posts Edit list..

    How does Edit Flow deal with the auto draft WordPress function? Will it change the auto draft status to the default custom post status set in Edit Flow?

    I cannot add "draft" back into the custom status page.

    Error says:
    "Status name conflicts with existing term. Please choose another."

    This sounds like it might be a bug. We'll look into it further.

    I cannot add "draft" back into the custom status page.

    You have a category or some other taxonomy term called "Draft" that you'll need to delete.
