I want users to be able to create posts but not publish them, as in an admin has to publish them. I thought this would be easy. Create user role that

CAN create / edit own posts
CAN NOT publish own posts

however, when I login as a test user they CAN publish their own posts

So seemlingly the 'publish own posts' setting does nothing

Am I missing something very obvious here ? I'm using v3.1.0.1

ok, I'll try again...

why doesn't the 'publish own posts' setting work? whether on OR off users can still publish their own posts

This right was used initially, but newer UI does not utilize it.

thanks rtur - your reply is helpful

what's not helpful is a setting that does nothing - wtf ?!
