Disable publishing of many dependent contents in the publish wizard


A customer of ours has a new feature due to be rolled out this month. They have quite a lot of pages that are not published and some that are modified, ready for rollout.

The editors are still working on other parts of the site, and find it difficult to separate the new feature and day-to-day edits. In particular, editing the front page (e.g. changing the top image) is a problem, as the publish wizard wants to publish the modified and unpublished changes.

The editors can remove dependent content from the wizards one-by-one, but we think it should be possible to disable all dependencies by a single click.

Have a feature like this been discussed?


Maybe not exactly solved the way you suggest, but there will be new “validator” checks that prevent accidental publishing of unfinished items i.e. an “in progress state”.
