[resolved] Restrict Authors for Publishing Posts? (2 posts)

    By default Authors can publish posts. How can you restrict this privilege, using Role Scoper, and make it so Authors cannot publish - only "Pending for Review" status or something similar?

    -> RS Role Definitions > Post Author

    I have unchecked "Publish" and for some reason, the Author can still publish?

    Am I doing this correctly - or should I try another method?

    If your users are Authors by WP role assignment, the most direct route to your desired functionality is to remove the publish_posts capability from the Author role definition.

    You can do that using a WP role editor such as Capability Manager, User Role Editor or Members. Or in the RS Role Definitions tab, check the "sync WP Author" checkbox for Post Author before clicking update.
