#5723 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Clearer error response to reject non-draft entries from Contributor

Reported by: toydi Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: minor Version: 2.7
Component: XML-RPC Keywords: has-patch 2nd-opinion
Focuses: Cc:


Currently, user with "Contributor" role can submit new drafts, but not publish new posts.

In wp-app.php, if a contributor forgets to set app:draft to 'yes' and submits a new post, the server rejects the request with an error message. But currently, the error message does not clearly mention what actually went wrong.

[Current Response]
401 Unauthorized
"Sorry, you do not have the right to edit/publish new posts."

So, here is a proposed response, which informs the contributor that: 1) you do not have the right to publish new posts, but 2) you may submit the post as draft for review.

[Proposed Response]
401 Unauthorized
"Sorry, you do not have the right to publish new posts. Please submit your post as draft for review."
