Support » Plugin: Extended Post Status » Not working as expected

  • Resolved Martin Sauter

    (@martinsauter)


    My goal is to have an «archived» state which makes a once published page no longer available to the public. I have unchecked the option «Posts/Pages with this status are public.» for my custom state, but the page is still visible in the frontend.

    Am I missing someting?

    Hi @martinsauter

    I’ve just checked the behaviour of the public checkbox and it seems to work fine in my example setup: https://streamable.com/070jx9

    Is this what you try to do (as seen in my video)?

    Could you deactivate all other plugins you use and switch to a default WP theme, just to check if anything disrupts the plugin?

    Hi Felix

    Thank you for your reply. What you demonstrate in your video is exactly what I tried to do. And after some tests I have to admit that it was not the fault of your plug-in, but a caching issue.

    What still does not work as expected is that when I create a new post, no status is assigned by default. So when you forget to set the status manually, the post is no longer accessible in the posts list.

    Hi @welly2103

    Can you confirm that your plugin does not set the «draft» status by default when a user creates a new post?

    This is really an issue for our authors.

    Kind regards,
    Martin

    Hi @martinsauter

    sorry for the late answer. That is actually right, I’ll have a deeper look into this issue and will come back to this thread whenever there is an update.

    Hi @welly2103

    The new release fixes the bug that new posts kind of disappear if you forget to set a status.

    However, there are still some details:

        When you create a new post, the status field says «Select status» instead of «Draft» (which is the standard behaviour of WordPress).
        When you create a new post and publish it directly, the status remains «Draft» instead of «Published» (which again is the standard behaviour of WordPress).
