WordPress allows you to set a workflow status of the content.

By default, it supports 8 major statuses:

  • Published - Viewable by everyone.

  • Future - Scheduled to be published in a future date.

  • Draft - Incomplete post viewable by anyone with proper user level.

  • Pending & Private - Viewable only to WordPress users at Administrator level.

  • Trash, Auto-Draft & Inherit - Utility statuses used by the system.

Further custom statuses can be added via the register_post_status() function.
