    In the blogs module list in the admin, there is a field called "Status".  And with each post, the status says "Published".  Is there a way to create a post as a draft, like blogger does, so that someone can start writing a blog post and come back to it later without it being automatically posted to the website?

    Hi Dino,

    Thank you for using our services.

    You could enable workflow for Blogs module as below:

    <add name="Blogs" allowWorkflow="True" urlRewriteFormat="[Publication_Date]/[Title].aspx" urlDateTimeFormat="yy-MM-dd" urlWhitespaceChar="_" visible="False" defaultMetaField="Title" applicationName="/Blogs" allowVersioning="True" allowLocalization="False" localizationProviderName="" securityProviderName="" versioningProviderName="" connectionStringName="GenericContentConnection" type="Telerik.Blogs.Data.DefaultBlogProvider, Telerik.Blogs.Data" /> 

    Thus, you will pass through the workflow stages and your post will be saved as Draft until it is Send for approval and then Published. Basically your item which you are going to change will have ContentStatus.Draft

    Let us know if there is anything else that we can do for you.
