#1376 Articles : Expiration Date saves as publication date on new

Roy Sinn

Validated in version 1.8.1

When creating new article, the Expiration Date is always
set to the Publish date. This requres that you always
create and then edit new articles to get the Expiration
Date the way you want it.

    Hi Chris,
    thanks for reporting, I get this too.
    Can dheltzel look at this? I'm also wondering why we have
    two very similar pages for submission and edition, please
    dennis explain me why because merging them seemed to be a
    good idea.

    The submit page is for those who do not have permission to
    edit pages. On submitting the article does not appear until
    it is approved by an editor. So although the form looks the
    same, the SQL insertion code is different.

    As for the original bug, the default expiration date should
    be one that never expires: NULL if the DB structure allows it.

    Expiration date entered for article submissions now saved.
    Fix is in /lib/article/artlib.php available via CVS now or
    download tomorrow.
