I swear I knew how to do this before, but for the life of me I can't
find the option or remember how it was done...

There is/was a way to force the close of a page to automatically
release rather than stay in a draft mode. Can anyone out there remind
this poor soul's apparently horrible memory?

Thanks,
Geoff

Yep, it's an option in the Project General Settings.

Cheers,

Gavin

As reported to me (and boy, do I feel like an idiot for having this
stare me in the face):

Smart Tree -> Administer Project Settings -> General Settings -> Edit
Settings (in Action Menu).

Un-check: ClosePage RedDot saves pages as draft

I've never found a situation where I would be comfortable releasing
pages automatically. In what situation are you using this?

It's for workflow specifically to assist the translators. We have an
automatic publish that executes to send files to an intermediary
server, where a cron script copies files up to a preview/approval
server. This is mostly to support the massive amounts of security we
have in place (it's a pull copy, not a push copy, as a result). It's a
bit of a long, complicated story. ;)

But it's limited, and that's the only reason. Otherwise, it works
fine.
