Apparently when someone who doesn't have publish_posts edits the publish'd documents the post reverts to pending.

It somewhat sounds like a user-role has edit_published_posts but not publish_posts and causes that..

My thought is that the handbook pages should remain published if a non-privledged user edits them, but others have informed me that ideally it'd not make their edits public until review (which seems to be what's happening now).

First step seems to be to trust users who have edit access, and keep the pages published. Second step sounds like it's to add an editorial plugin that lets you put future changes into a review queue.

  • Resolution set to duplicate
  • Status changed from new to closed

Closing as the reported broken link is no longer broken, but doing so as a duplicate of #3881, which more directly acknowledges the root issue here.
