A button that toggles an entry's published-state and allows authors to preview unpublished entries on the live site.
- Upload the
/publishbuttonfolder to your Symphony
- Enable it by selecting 'Publish Button', choose 'Enable' from the with-selected menu, then click 'Apply'.
When this field is added to a section, a new button will appear on its entries pages. This Publish Button will allow an author to toggle the published-state of an entry between "Published" and "Unpublished". Behind the scenes the button acts like a normal checkbox and translates these states to simple
no values which then can be used to filter your entries in data-sources.
When the user is logged in to Symphony, the value used for filtering and XML output will always be
yes. This allows the author to create/edit an entry (like an article) and preview it on the live site without the public seeing it.
Publish button plays nicely together with the Ajax Checkbox extension (Version 1.5.0 and up) which adds the possibility to easily toggle the published-state directly in the section's index/table view.
