Currently, when I look at my dashboard, I see several drafts that I've imported via RSS.
I have "DRAFT", "EDIT", and "DELETE" buttons. Under each post
However, none of those buttons appears to give me the ability to actually publish a post. And unlike authoring this post, when I click "SAVE POST", it appears to revert back to the unpublished post, rather than publishing it.
Anyone know how I can actually get some of these out into the wild?
The post has a
published: false piece in the frontmatter. Change it to

yup happened to me too. duh! feature request: maybe have a button called "Publish" which explains how to actually publish a draft
DOH! I missed the
published: falsein the frontmatter.
Note that deleting it will not help, it need to be set to
same here :P !
Old but gold, thank you!
Haha, thank you!
It's weird. At various times throughout my past, I've logged into dev.to with my Twitter and Github respectively. On the account where I logged in with Github, I had a publish button and did not run into this snafu. On the account where I logged in with Twitter, I did run into it, and also have a different UI for publishing posts altogether (with just plain YAML up top and no publish button, just a preview button)
Ah! I figured it out. All you have to do is change your editor version.
Darn, it was so unexpected. As a newbie I was just searching for a button
Oh yes, this happened to me, and it took me 15 minutes to discover your post. Thank you.
Thank you for sharing this tip! I really appreciate it!
Thanks for this! I was also expecting to find a
Publishbutton somewhere 😅
Great!! Thank you for saving my time!
Publish button is needed - it is a fundamental UX/UI concept! Has somebody raised a feature request already?
omg, that wasn't obvious at first
Good one! Thanks
Great to find the post and solve my problem!
Thanks for this post. This is a hilarious UX blunder
