Thanks for the reply but I'm not sure I understand your question.
I created a blog using the "Core Recipe".
I enabled the Blog Module after that.
New Blog posts didn't have "Publish Now" and through investigation I determined it was because the BlogPost type did not have the "Draftable="True" addtribute.
I found no way from within the UI to set this (why is there not a way to do this?)
To solve it, I creatively exported BlogPost contenttype from another instance that had been created with the "default recipe" which apparently has the XML within the recipe to make BlogPost a Draftable content type. I then imported that into my instance
which then set the Draftable flag in my "Core Recipe" creatd instance.
If there is a defect it would be that enabling "Blog" module from the admin page of "Core Recipe Install" doesn't appear to be setting "Draftable" on BlogPost content Types.
Within the ui, I would like to be able to set the Draftable and other flags regardless of what the default is. I should be able to switch this on the fly and not have to rely on an import and export process or the default to set these flags.
Is this stored in the database somewhere? If so, perhaps a module to be able to manage metadata on contentTypes is the appropriate answer.
Thanks for the assistance.
