does private mean that only users within a specific role can see
the content? for an online medical site we built we had the following
public or private was how we differentiated between content
availible to anybody and private content only for registered
we didn`t need an editor role for this project but the "is
viewable" feature was designed to give the author control
at what time an article was to enter the website cycle.
generally, we find the publishing issues you seem to
be getting into with the ptk very exciting.
we have a lot of "golden nuggets" of software from
various projects we have done lying around beehive.
ex: archiving of articles by:
xnumber <pulldown> days, weeks, months
we are currently working on putting some of this
code into metapublisher -- maybe we could figure
out a way to join forces here and help you embed
metapublisher code into the ptk?
do you have a version of the ptk we can take a look
at without having to install cvs?
