#53012 new feature request

Change Status of "Hello World" to Draft as Default

We've done an amazing job with starter text for our default themes.

As someone who works with small business owners, however, they often don't realize they should not delete or rewrite "Hello World." Instead, it's published.

Searching for the string shows over 5,000 results.

This is the first post in your new blog. To add another or delete this one click the Blog option on the toolbar above.

I think a simple solution is to set it as a draft instead of published.

I searched Trac and couldn't find this ticket so I thought, why not submit it?

Thanks, y'all.

Perhaps when the fresh_site flag is switched off after new content is published for the first time (see [38991]), a check could be performed to see whether "Hello World" is still in its original state, and unpublish it if so.
