Show "draft" or "published" in the Posts-List?
edited May 2011
I use Wordpress und work a lot with draft posts and would like to see in the list of posts if they are already published or still in draft. Is there a solution?
Hi - there is a column you can show in the list. Select View -> Columns -> Post Kind. This should help a bit at least.
Perfect solution, I am a totally green user using the trial version to see how it will work with Wordpress blogs and this was one of my first questions. Perfect timing! Thanks.
Glad that it worked well for you!
Any idea why this doesn't function properly with MovableType and server-side drafts?
All my posts in MarsEdit show as "Published Post" in the "Post Kind" column, even though 7 of them are still server-side unpublished drafts.
PingTrip - I think this is one of the annoying side-effects of MovableType "not really" supporting draft status for posts. It can be configured (which you've evidently done) to accept the "publish = NO" status of a post to mean draft, but it doesn't relay that information back to MarsEdit in any meaningful way, so MarsEdit assumes they are published.

Sorry to resurrect this thread but which value in the entry data are you using to determine if "Post Kind" should equal "Published Post"?
With this response:
MarsEdit displays the entry as a "Published Post", when my assumption is that it should be a "Draft".
Update: I also modified the response to indicate the value was a SOAP Data type of 'boolean', but it has the same result of the post being "Published".
Currently since there is no official, definitive attribute for Movable Type (that I know of) to indicate publish/draft status, it doesn't have anything specific to look for in Movable Type's case.
However, when I added support for WordPress's Publish/Draft status, I added it in such a way that it will also be detected from Movable Type API, in the hopes that Movable Type would adopt the same standard, with attribute named "post_status". If this value is equal to "draft" then MarsEdit will mark the post as draft. Otherwise it will mark the post as published.
Thanks Daniel! I modified my code and added a "post_status" attribute to the response and it works as expected.
Great to hear!
