I am using the Content Moderation module in Drupal 8.2 and I have noticed there is no way to re-unpublish a node once it has been moderated into a published state. I'm able to create a new draft of the content and moderate that through to published state but I can't find a way to actually unpublish the node.

There is a bug issue on DO that seems related, but looking at the patch it only adds a message informing you that you can't unpublish content directly once under moderation. Which makes sense as having content moderation enabled means you are handing over control of publish/unpublish to that module. But that leaves the question of how to actually unpublish a node that is under moderation?

I understand this module is currently experimental but am fairly sure I am missing something here.


You can enable the default revision for all the states. If there is any transition in any state from publish to draft or any state.

  • Thanks for this, i re-instated the archived state which i had deleted and set the default revision flag and everything is now as expected. – Rob Holmes Jan 20 '17 at 8:12
