I have a site were certain users can create, edit and publish articles on the front end. These users are using the default "Author", "Editor", "Publisher" user groups and permissions.
They can do all tasks fine except when first creating an article it is always unpublished. In the form the status field is html disabled so you can't edit it, however it is set to "Published". Regardless of what this field says when you save the first time the article is always unpublished.
You can then edit it and publish it without problems, however we want to be able to create and publish the first time.
I have found this isn't a problem for Managers/super users despite having the same article permissions set. Have tried increasing permissions for articles and log in/out numerous times but the only way I have found to fix this is give a user the Manager role.
