Using Content Staging
Once Content Staging is enabled across your site, using it is very straightforward. You modify the content of an HTML module just like you used to. The only difference is the addition of a checkbox for Publish near the Update button. The checkbox gives you a little flexibility. In general, you will not want to check this, as it defeats the purpose of Content Staging. However, if you do check the box, you are able to revert back to content changes being published live.
Once you hit Update, the page reloads. It will appear as though your changes are now live. This is only because you are still logged into the site. When you look at the page in another browser where your login is not valid, you will notice your changes are not published.
Approval of changes is simple. An Admin of the site will login and go to the page where the changes are pending. Depending on the version of the CMS you are running, there are different instructions:
- DNN 5: Below the content, there is a green checkmark to Publish Content
- DNN 6: In the "Manage" menu, Publish Content
- DNN 7: Edit the page, hover Edit menu, Publish Content
