Publishing Options for Posts

The posts publishing option helps you manager your content's Web site by allowing you to control the status of the content.

When you navigate to Posts on the control bar, Graffiti displays the Post Published in All Categories page.

Along the top of the page are 5 tabs: Published, Draft, Pending Review, Requires Changed, and Deleted. These tabs reflect the publishing status options Graffiti supports when you write a post. The publishing status option is available on the post Settings tab.

The publish status feature allows you to control the content published on your web page and determine when a piece of content is ready for public viewing. The following table describes the publish status option functions:
