I'm using workbench core, which so far is providing the workflow that I need (well, almost).
The workflow is:
- Primary editor writes a new node, and leaves it unpublished.
- When the Primary editor is finished, he edits the node and changes the 'author' field to the new editor who will continue editing.
- The New editor accesses his workbench page to (should be able to) see the unpublished node in his article list, where he continues to edit.
- The New editor publishes the node after he has finished.
The problem is that the article never shows up in the New editor's article list on his Workbench page. However, when viewing the Content list, the article shows correctly and shows that he is indeed the owner / author. There is something wrong with Workbench that doesn't recognize new ownership of nodes (via the author field).
Is this a bug? Configuration setting? All I want to do is change the author of this node and it show up in his workbench. I am hoping I can do this without having to add any more workbench related modules.
To me it feels strongly like a configuration issue with the view that was supplied by the Workbench core module, but no amount of fiddling with it has proved productive. I think I'm just missing something. Plus, I'd prefer not to have to hack a module.
Here is a Drupal.org thread about it, however, no one has looked at the issue for months.
