    I'm thinking at this point that the functionality I want isn't fully implemented yet, at least in 5.2.5.

    Confusion around Draft Articles

    Using VB 5.2.5. I want my registered users to be able to create draft articles, but not publish the articles themselves. Sounds straightforward. So a registered user creates an article entry, and saves it as a draft. Great. I can see it in the admin panel (CMS Manager), and it doesn't show up on the articles channel since it is unpublished. Awesome.

    However, they can't see the article draft. I saw in another thread (https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/foru...icle-in-vb5-22) where you could try enabling the permission for "Can see deletion notices" in the channel. Ok, did that, and now they can see their draft article on the /articles channel. However, there is no way that I can see for them to actually edit the article. There is no "edit" link or button. If they click on "Go to post" or the article title link, it just sends them to the home page (assume that is because the article isn't published). I have the "Can edit own posts" permission set to yes.

    Any ideas out there? If I am missing the obvious here, please let me know!

    Cheers.
