I have a custom post type called 'contacts'. I want want to remove the status, post date and change the button from PUBLISH to SAVE. From what I can tell this may not be possible without changing core files (please correct me if I am wrong).
So, instead of trying to hack the PUBLISH metabox, I have the ability to remove the PUBLISH meta box all together using the Access Manager plugin. But I need to know how to readd a SAVE button that works the same way PUBLISH would.
