Link for user to unpublish post (status: draft)

  • I am using this function:

    if(isset($_REQUEST['action']) && $_REQUEST['action']=='mypublish')
    add_action('init','my_publish_draft');
    function my_publish_draft(){
    //Get the post's ID.
    $post_id = (isset($_REQUEST['post']) ?  (int) $_REQUEST['post'] : 0);
    
    //No post? Oh well..
    if(empty($post_id))
    return;
    
    $nonce = $_REQUEST['_wpnonce'];
    
    //Check nonce
    if (! wp_verify_nonce($nonce,'my-publish-post_'.$post_id))
    wp_die('Are you sure?'); 
    
    //Check user permissions
    if (!current_user_can('publish_posts'))
    wp_die("You can't do that"); 
    
    //Any other checks you may wish to perform..
    
    //Publish post
    $post = get_post($post_id,ARRAY_A);
    $post['post_status'] ='publish';
    wp_update_post($post);
    
    //Redirect to published post
    wp_redirect('/dashboard/');
    exit;
    }

    And this code:

    <?php
    $status=get_post_status($upost->ID);
    if ($status!='publish')
    				$url=add_query_arg(array('action'=>'mypublish', 'post'=>$upost->ID),home_url());
    echo  "<a href='" . wp_nonce_url($url, 'my-publish-post_' . $upost->ID) . "'>Publish</a>"; 
    
    ?>

    To allow users to publish their posts via the front end of my site (theseattlevine.com/dashboard). I now want to give them an option to un-publish their posts (change them back to drafts).

    Can anyone help me figure out how to do this?

    Thanks!
