    CMS Content Approval Link to this post

    I'm working on a large site that will have many content managers. I've tried working w/ the CMS workflow module, but it is quite buggy right now. And I can't get it to work at all in 2.3.2. I've built in a simple canPublish() function setup so only the admin can publish. But I would like the content managers to be able to request publication because as it stands now we will have no way of determining if they are still working on their draft. So my question is, does anyone know an easy way to create a Request Publication button in the CMS that sends an email to the site admins with the page url in the cms that needs to be published?

    Thanks in advance.

    Your best bet is to use the workflow module, rather than building "request publication" yourself. Try out the module with our current trunk, there's a couple of compatibility issues with branches/2.3. They will be most likely fixed with the next minor release.

    Hi Ingo,

    Thanks for your response! I went away from the cms workflow module after having errors when I upgraded to SS 2.3.2. Using the latest trunk, I get this error in the CMS: [User Error] DataObject::getComponents(): Unknown 1-to-many component 'WorkflowRequests'

    Any ideas on how to get that working properly?
