    initial v1  
    1 I was looking for a way to change media/attachment statuses from Published to Draft and found this long thread. Our use case is translation. We have a main site in English, each post has many images. We are setting up another language with its own WordPress install as we'd like not mess with multi-language plugins. My plan was to make it easy for our translator: export all content from the English site, import it into the new language, unpublish all posts and pages. Then, for each translation, the editor could find the English post already formatted in English with all the media files in it, and would just need to edit the descriptions and content, then hit Publish. But in the current way of WordPress, all media files will remain available to search engines for indexing, and we might create a SEO mess with Google seeing the same images twice with the exact same descriptions, until the translator gets to the post they are part of and updates the descriptions.
