Users can't "publish" articles since update from 3.9 to 3.10

Post by DavetheCat » Wed Jan 19, 2022 12:09 pm

Hello,
I hope someone can advise please... since updating our sites from Joomla 3.9.24 to 3.10.4 (last week, before the 3.10.5 update), some of our User groups are unable to publish the articles they create.

We have a couple of user groups who are allowed to create and publish their own articles, but since the update to 3.10.4 they can only create them - but not publish them. We haven't changed any permissions ourselves, so think there is something more we need to do in 3.10.4 to give permissions to publish.

Any help appreciated!!

Edit.state is needed in order to be able to publish.

Hi Yngve, Thanks, yes we are aware that Edit State is needed, and that permission has always been allowed for these user groups.

We have had these same user groups in place for at least 4 years, with the same permissions all that time. It was only when we updated from 3.9.24 to 3.10.4 that all of a sudden they didn't have permission to publish, (even though Edit State is still allowed). As a temporary measure we have made those users "Editors", but ideally we would like them to be in their original user group.

Is there perhaps a new setting that we aren't aware of governing whether articles are automatically 'published' or 'unpublished' maybe?
