This seems to be an easy thing, but I cannot find a way in EE where you can select which of the statuses in the status group should be the default status. Am I missing something?
What I want to do is have new channel entries default to status of "closed" and only be "open" once the administrator explicitly sets it to "open". I know that if you do not set a specific status group to a channel, entries will default to closed for non-superadmins, but this is not an option, because we are using a custom status group with more statuses than just "open" and "closed". Does anyone know whether it is possible to set the default status to "closed"?
