Description

I am using a permalink structure but anything saved as a draft ends up showing up in things like icerocket. They don't show up in feed readers. My current workaround for this is not to save drafts.

I am using a permalink structure but anything saved as a draft ends up showing up in things like icerocket. It appears that certain bots/spiders are traversing the non-permalink URL's. They don't show up in any feeds that I've seen. My current workaround for this is not to save drafts.
