I'm currently working on a site where the client needs to have a content approval process.

So a user can edit content but can only save, not publish the content to the live site.

Then another user/group (admin/editor) would be able to approve the content and publish.

I've heard that this feature is built into silverstripe, but I can't find a way of implementing it, or documentation on this feature?

Note I am using silverstripe 3

thank you

does not explain how to do this - Author (someone who can create and edit content, but not publish) what settings need be done.
