Add-On Type(s)

Fieldtype, Module


Module/Fieldtype combo for creating/publishing drafts of Channel Entries.


The fieldtype outputs a ‘create draft’ button on the publish page. When you hit ‘creat draft’ - the fieldtype does an ajax call to the module to essentially duplicate the entry and give it a status of Draft. The publisher can then switch to the Draft entry, and do edits there.

The entry can then be edited/saved safely away from the live entry (it’s now another entry) but come time to publish/merge, the publisher can easily overwrite the originating entry with the updated content.

The field will also output a list of any drafts that exist for a given entry, allowing the author/admin to jump to drafts and then review/commit them to the entry.

All’s well in theory, will be interesting when user permissions are thrown in the mix, and custom fieldtypes that store their data outside of exp_channel_data…

Will cross that bridge if I ever get there…
