What is the difference between draft and pending review?

When saving custom posts using Gravity Forms I can choose one of the two statuses.

Why would we need to choose one over the other?

in our particular case, posts are being submitted by un-logged in users and we want a member of our staff to manually publish them.

    Greetings davhad,

    Thank you for the great question.

    Why would we need to choose one over the other?

    As you had mentioned the posts are being submitted by un-logged in users in which case you would want them set as pending review.

    On the other hand if the post is being done by a member of your team, then you would want to save them as drafts if they were not completed because your staff would just publish them if it were complete.

    I hope that clarifies the actual functioning difference - which is basically they are the same but different labels for the purposes mentioned above.

    Thank you for being a WPMU DEV Community Member!

    Cheers, Joe
