Drupal Module Comparison: Publish Button vs Safe Draft

To publish and unpublish content in Drupal you ususually have to tick or untick the Published checkbox before hitting the Save button. Sparing your users a click is alway a good idea, so why not considering a module that simplifies the action of publishing and unpublishing content.

Please welcome Publish Button and Safe Draft.

Both modules will simply add button actions to your nodes to publish/unpublish content instead of ticking that clumsy checkbox.

Here’s why I opted for Publish Button over Safe Draft:

  • Publish Button is actively maintained, Safe Drafts was last updated in 2011
  • Publish Button can be enabled per-content type whereas Safe Drafts is always enabled globally
  • Publish Button features per-content type permissions
  • Publish Button hides empty vertical tabs opposed to Safe Draft, which shows the Publishing options tab even when it’s completely empty
