A screenshot of the Override Node Options permissions

The Override Node Options module allows permissions to be set to each field within the Authoring information and Publishing options field sets on the node form. It also allows selected field sets to be set as collapsed and / or collapsible.

To install:

  1. Download, unpack and place in sites/all/modules/
  2. Adjust access control in admin/user/permissions
  3. Adjust Fieldset options in admin/settings/override_node_options

Note: Autocomplete "Authored by" field only works if user has "Access user profiles" permission.

Drupal 8

8.x-2.x is the supported release Drupal 8, though it does rely on replacing the default node form class (see #2606458: 8.x-2.x needs to use a different node form class to override the published option). It seems that this will be resolved in core 8.4 (see #2068063: Change "Save and keep un-/published" buttons to a "Published" checkbox and an included "Save" button) at which time this module will release 8-x.3.0.

The 8-x.2.x branch will remain compatible with core 8.3.x.
