Defaults in ME
edited August 2007
When I upload a post (to Wordpress), the default status of the article is published but I would like to be able to select the status of the essay eg select private or draft as default options.
This is an often requested feature but up to now it hasn't been implemented mainly because WordPress doesn't allow you to fetch those articles back once they've been sent.
I can see how it would be handy to just send things up as drafts, but if you can't grab them again with MarsEdit I think the user experience would be too poor overall.
I'm hoping we'll eventually get full access to managing posts of all varieties through the remote editor API.
okay. The main reason I need it is that I don't like writing online, I prefer working in an offline editor of some kind (which is why I chose ME).
I think I understand about fetching back, in other words if the status of the piece anything other than published, ME can't download it?
Yep exactly. So you can see how the overall experience would be frustrating, even if it would be occasionally convenient.
