Frontend editing and save UNPUBLISHES items

Hello,

Every time I go to save, or rather my users, go to save an item they have edited from the frontend, the item is then automatically saved as UNPUBLISHED.

I have changed the editor from JCE to TinyMCE and the same thing happens.

I am on Joomla 3.8.3
Using Joomshaper's Helix3 template
and K2 2.8.0

This has been going on for months, can someone tell me how they've fixed it, if they've run into this problem?
Thanks

Hello,

Does that user have publishing rights?
Can they edit their or other items? If the user has insufficient rights, then the item will be marked as unpublished.

Thanks Krikor for getting back to me.
The user has everything from Registered (Author/Editor) to Publisher rights and has been the Author of that article for some time (but I created it).
I have tried it myself as the super user and it does the same to me.

I hadn't thought to ask him to try a different article. I initially thought it was a user problem but it's definitely not.

What is curious is the log out of a K2 front end edit where I have a choice of Save or Close. If I choose Save, I obviously come back to the same screen and then have to choose Close afterwards. What happened to the Save and Close button? This problem came up about the time that button disappeared? It might have nothing to do with it but I recall it seemed to happen around the same time?

Hello,
Can you send me a screenshot of the K2 User Group's settings?
Save and close was not working properly (lightbox issues) and it was abandoned.

OK - Thank you for pointing me there. I really never thought K2 would have a separate ACL from Joomla - it never occurred before.

I have made all my Editors able to publish.

Thank you.
