Describe the bug

When using the post publishing API, the published posts are not really "published", they are posted as drafts. From there, there appears to be no API for publishing a draft post.

Steps to reproduce (if necessary)

Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Publish a writefreely post using the API
  2. Observe the post is created as a draft and is not visible to the public

Expected behavior

What should've happened?

  • The post should have been published, or the API should have supported a flag for publishing it

Application configuration

  • Single mode or Multi-user mode? Single mode
  • Database? [mysql/sqlite] sqlite3
  • Open registration? [yes/no] no
  • Federation enabled? [yes/no] no

Version or last commit: latest Docker image

Hi @sssilver, thanks for taking an interest in the WriteFreely API! Things are definitely a bit unconventional, but you can absolutely publish a blog post by hitting the Publish a Collection Post endpoint (blogs are internally called "collections"), instead of the Publish a Post endpoint.

If you publish a draft first, you'll simply move that draft to a blog / collection with our Move a Post endpoint.

I'll close this since it isn't a bug in the software. But if you have any questions, please feel free to join us on our forum!

Thanks, this helps tremendously! Are the docs opensource? Should we amend the documentation to clarify this?

I got a PR up at writeas/api-docs#7. What's the process for getting it reviewed and merged?

Thanks!
