[resolved] Ability to edit certain Custom Status disabled (3 posts)

    I can't figure out what I've done that's preventing me from editing the custom statuses Draft and Pending Review. I realize these are WordPress defaults however your screenshots of Edit Flow lead me to believe that these are editable/customizable.

    I recently installed Tadlock's Manage. I'm an admin with full capabilities so I'm not sure why I have restricted access to editing these.

    If I try to edit the status from the edit button on the Dashboard widget I get:
    "Specified status is restricted and cannot be edited."

    Suggestions for how to fix this? Thanks.

    Unfortunately, we've restricted the ability to edit the Draft and Pending Review default statuses for the foreseeable future. Our concern is that if users deleted the statuses, there could be negative compatibility issues with WordPress because WordPress doesn't fully support custom post statuses yet.

    Hope this answers your question,

    Got it. I'd seen differently in the screenshots so was confused.

    Appreciate you help.
