Silverstripes Publish button locations design is changing, we will need to make some adjustments to the way buttons are presented for Workflow.

SilverStripe 3.1 button Changes

Our designer Bee will be taking a look at how Workflow is presented and ease of use.

The new button layout has a more explicit distinction between "common action" and "less common action". I'd expect that there will be a more sophisticated API for adding buttons to the CMS form that hasn't yet been documented.


  • Bee can mock up a design for how workflow would fit into the new schema.
  • The actions can be coded in such a way that they feed nicely into both 3.0 and 3.1.

In particular, it would be annoying to have to maintain a 3.0-compatible and 3.1-compatible fork.

The feasibility of this depends on how the 3.1 actions API is extended, so I'll raise that with Ingo etc.
