I can't find the function listed above. I'm on p2 version 1.4.0. Has something changed?
Anyway, I just spent three incredibly frustrating hours trying to make Blog Post the default post type on my site. I've scoured this forum, found many threads addressing the issue, but not yet found a 100% working solution.
I tried every "fix" listed in these forums. I even tried modifying my child theme so that the four post type options are gone, and blog post is the only option available. No matter what I do, I can't find a way to prevent p2 from assuming I want to submit a status update!
I will buy lunch and a beer for anyone who can provide a 100% working solution. Don't really care if it's a plugin, or instructions for a hack, or modifying the p2 theme... anything to help us folks who don't want Status Update as the default mode, and who just want to use Blog Posts with p2.
