WP User Frontend
Dashboard: Take posts Offline (Draft) to Live (Publish) (6 posts)

    I am posting to the front end using two different plugins, WP User Frontend & Status. Status allows users to Draft posts, which is how I noticed that the WP User Frontend Dashboard/ Edit Post interface does not offer a way to subsequently "Publish" drafted or pending review posts but only to "Update" them, which keeps them in their same drafted or pending review status but does not offer an opportunity to "Publish" these posts.

    I tried to change the WP User Frontend plugin settings (under "Frontend Posting") to Default Post Status: "Draft", but still do not see additional options or buttons appearing that would allow users to then publish this post.

    It would be great, if as it seems to outline in the plugin description, there was even a way in the Dashboard to take a post from "Offline" or "Awaiting Approval" to "Live"?

    Suggestions for code hacks, feature upgrades, troubleshooting? Thanks!


    PS: Add and Edit posts with tags has a spelling error: it should be "Comma separated" not "Comma SepErated" — perhaps fix with next update.

    A post can't have two/three status (publish|draft|pending) at the same time. In WP User Frontend, this decision depends upon the admin. I am not sure how that would be possible what you are suggesting.

    Thanks for the spelling report, will be fixed :)

    I would like exactly the same things.
    When a post arrive to expiration, my users haven't the possibility to edit the status of their post to put them LIVE.

    Thank you by advance.

    hi tareq,
    is it able to add edit or delete option to only draft and pending post.
    Then the publish post user cannot edit or delete.

    I've found solution here http://wordpress.org/support/topic/security-problem-doesnt-observe-user-capabilities?replies=7
    but its only hidden the link edit or delete, the user still can acces the edit page if they know the post-ID
