When I want to move a post from Site Content to my website I have a need to stop posts from being immediately published.

Is there a way to "publish" posts created in Site Content at WA in such a way that they can automatically go into a DRAFT state in WP?

This is because I want to check the posts in the WP Dashboard editor before releasing them; I want to automatically trigger an email to subscribers when a post is published."

Thank you for your responses, everyone!

Since you have an auto responder which sends out published articles from your site, our suggestion will not help. but just be aware that you can "quick edit" any post that is "published" from Site content and change its status back to "draft". in8 "Quick Edit" see the option under a post when in "all posts":

Copy and paste you post in WP and hit "save draft."

When selecting images you want those over to your media library, here's what to do

I'd place my images in a document in site content and publish it to my site. it will be added to my WordPress media library. Then delete the “temporary image” doc in site content so that it does not get indexed as well.

Barry got you covered here.

However it is easier to publish to your WordPress and then reset the post as draft and edit.

The only way to do this is to copy and paste your article into the post and then save it as draft if you click publish in th site editor t will automatically publish the post there is no way round this unless you copy and paste the content into your WP post by hand and then save it as draft

Once I publish in Site editor, I rush over to WP Posts and change from Public to Private in the Edit screen sidebar.
That gives me time to change/add photos till I change to Public again. Then it is well and truly Published!

Was just wondering if I could avoid this "Public" step.
Thank you for your help.
