Add a "published" attribute to blog posts
|Reported by:||quad||Owned by:||osimons|
This would offer an easy way for the author to hide a blog post regardless of the permissions a person has on it. Most blog systems features this functionality already. Plus, while I recognize the exact behavior needs to be defined first, it can be implemented by adding a single attribute to the post.
Some quick specs I can think of:
- The attribute can be toggled by authors and editors.
- It affects all versions of the blog post.
- It's goal is to prevent the blog from being included in the blog page display.
- A checkbox control needs to be added on the blog post edit and creation pages.
It would allow one to post a new message while still preventing it from being displayed on the blog page. The editor could adjust the blog post freely before actually publishing it on the blog, or prepare a message for future publishing.
I understand that the FullBlogPlugin is not meant to be a full-featured web log system, however this feature seems simple enough for the added benefits.
