Notes :

1. Posting object in MCMS API is actually a Combination of underlying Page object and Posting object. Properties such as StartDate, ExpiryDate, and IsImportant belong to underlying posting object, while Description and Name are properties of the underlying page object (Also placeholders and custom properties are bounded to page objects). When an editor approves a posting, they are actually approving the page the posting is based on. When a moderator subsequently approves the posting, they approve the posting itself.

2. Modification to posting object require Moderator Approval.

3. Only page object have revisions, not posting objects. So a modification to posting object if the posting is published will make the posting offline until it gets approved by a moderator.

4. A page object modification will require Editor Approval.

5. As page objects can have revisions when it gets modified, the live posting will be still there until the modified one gets proper approval.

This is a summary from MCMS 2002 SP1a SDK.
