Blog post status options added

Tuesday, Jun. 8, 2010

The blog system now includes options for setting a status for individual blog posts.  The options are "published", "pending review", and "draft".  The default setting is "published", and that setting will be applied to any content submitted through the "quick post" form.  The "pending review" setting can be used if there are multiple contributors to the blog, and someone needs to review and approve posts before they're published.  The "draft" option can be used for a blog post that you aren't quite ready to publish, but you want to save your work in progress.

Items with a status other than "published" will not display in the various blog element themes, and will not be included in the blog's RSS feed.

You will see the item status indicated with a representative icon in the Blog Manager's blog post list.
