Implementing a publishing workflow can streamline content production, which is why Joomla decided to improve its workflow process in Joomla 4. If you’ve been using Joomla for a while, you’ll be familiar with the traditional status types: Published, Unpublished, Archived and Trashed. However, the truth is that sometimes content editors skip or miss parts of the workflow and compliance and governance processes ensue.
Two changes have been implemented in Joomla 4. The first applies whether or not you have workflow implemented on your site. Workflow changes how status types are used. It also impacts the Featured status for articles, which there’s an additional change to note for Joomla 4. Read more about Joomla’s workflows here.
