Here is how its setup.

The Channel: Personal Trainer Directory

Edit Group Assignments

Status Groups: Statuses

Edit Preferences

Default Status: Open

Member Group Settings

Channel Assignment

Can post and edit entries in Personal Trainer Directory: Yes

Module Access Privileges

Can access module SafeCracker: Yes

SafeCracker Module Settings

Personal Trainer Directory

Default Status: Open

SafeCracker tag


The entries are being created fine, just dont understand why they are showing up as closed still. Is there anything that I forgot?

Edit: I added the Member Group Settings section above, I forgot to add that initially so I'm still having the same issue

    Does the member group who is submitting the form have permission to post entries to the channel? Feb 20, 2013 at 20:01
  • @JasonVarga in the Member Group Settings, I have Can post and edit entries in Personal Trainer Directory: Yes and Can access module SafeCracker: Yes for that member group. Is that what you were asking?

    Also make sure you've assigned a Status group to that channel. Mar 18, 2013 at 20:56

Make sure that the member adding the entry is in a group that has access to the non-closed statuses. Before you do that, ensure a status group is assigned to the channel. Superadmins can use Open and Closed even without a status group assigned; but others can't - and that is the most common cause of what you're seeing.

  • thank you so much! this fixed it! this 1 was a little tricky i never htought to check the specific status

I was having this problem. Try removing status="open" from the Safecracker tag altogether. Worked for me.
