change "publish" button to "pending review" (5 posts)

    I'd like to change the behaviour of the "publish" button. On our blog, it should not be possible to create an article and publish it right away. It should be posted as "pending review" by default.

    At our blog we have the rule that someone else first has to take a look at it, and when he or she has checked the post, it will be placed on the server. This means that all users should have the possibility to publish articles, but in order to prevent mistakes, I'd like to set the default to "pending review".

    Is this possible?

    that functionality is already accomplished by roles and capabilities.


    Fix your roles.

    Not exactly.

    It should be possible for editors to publish, but not when making a new post.

    I'm looking for this workflow for a user that has one role, say editor:

    1. write article
    2. save as draft or pending review (publish not possible, or not the main button)
    3. when editing, publish is possible

    I'm looking for the EXACT capability too. Not possible with any role behaviour plugins I know of. Anyone have any ideas?
