Schedule Publish/Unpublish

  • Schedule Publish/Unpublish
  • Hi,
    In news module Schedule Publish/Unpublish with past seems has no effect, news listed by publication_date.
    Thanks
  • Hello mkavici,

    By design you cannot publish an item with a date in the past or earlier than the date created. The behaviour you describe is expected.  I will create request to be able to publish items with a date in the past and will forward it to our UX team for review.

  • Ok,
    Any advise to import to sitefinity with past news from old web site?
    Thanks
  • Hi mkavici,

    You can change the  PublicationDate programmtically after you publish the news item

    var newsAll = App.WorkWith()
                     .NewsItems()
                     .Where(nI => nI.Status == ContentLifecycleStatus.Live)
                     .ForEach(nI =>
                     
                         var val = DateTime.UtcNow.AddDays(-10);                 
                         nI.PublicationDate = val ;
                     )
                     .SaveChanges();


    Kind regards,

  • A handy feature would be a recurrence option that would ignore the year. For instance, for news announcements where you have a set start and end dates in a given year that you accept funding applications or holiday news items that occur on the same day(s) every year. Thank you.
  • Hi Darrel,

    Your request has been logged and will be reviewed when we discuss improvements to the News module.
    Thanks for your suggestion for improvement!

  • The fact that this is "expected" behavior is ridiculous.  Obviously, there are tons of scenarios where you would want a Publication Date to show up in the past.  Importing past press releases, changing a date sort order, etc.  Fix this soon, please.
  • I'd like to have this functionality working soon as well. We are moving 20+ websites to sitefinity, all of which will have backdated news. 
  • A  more troubling behavior is that it seems to change the Publication date after you update the news post.  Wait, what?  Not cool!

  • Does the publish/unpublish work at all in 4.0?  Even if i set it to publish on a future date it still shows up. Is there something i have to set in the control itself?
    We are actaully using the Products module and if I set the date for May 23, 2011 it actually says "Scheduled publish on 23/05/11" and it shows up today.
  • after further testing, i think that if the item is published first, then you late go back in and set the publish date to the future, it doesn't unpublish it for you.  You have to unpublish it first. Then set the date to the future.....  ideally it shouldn't it "unpublish" the item if the date is reset to the future??
  • Hi Laura,

    Thank you for contacting  us.
    I am not able to reproduce this problem with Sitefinity 4.0, so I assume that it appears only in the Products module. I will log this bug in our system for fixing.

    By design, if you open one published item and schedule it to publish in the future, the item will not be unpublished. The assumption is that you are creating a newer version of the content and you want it published in the future.
    As we received various feedback on this dialog we decided to improve its behavior. In the future, when changing the date of publication, you will be able to choose whether you want the item to be unpublished or not.

  • I hope this feature does make it onto some new version.

    We are rebuilding a current website into sitefinity and I am creating the news items from their current site.  Of course i want the dates to be the same dates as they are from the current web site!  

    So this is still not possible to put a publish date in the past? And we are using "Sitefinity 4.2.1650.0 SE"
    I believe it would be a very useful feature.  Thank you.
