post status is anything from a super simple draft/published status to a super complicated editorial workflow that handles everything from idea to editorial approval to deleted status.

Wordpress

Wordpress provides three options in the UI for setting the post status. "Status", "Visibility" and time.

Status

Upon starting a new post, Wordpress sets the post status to "draft" with a publish date of "immediately" and visibility of "public".

Before the post has been published, the possible settings of the "Status" dropdown are: Draft and Pending Review.

After clicking the "publish" button, the status changes to "Published", and the button changes to "Update"

Password protected

It is possible to set a password on posts, so that people visiting the permalink are prompted to first enter the password.

After this is set, the "status" remains "Published" but the "visibility" changes to "Password Protected"

Published Date

The published date can be customized for posts.

Before a post is published the first time, the "Publish" field reads "immediately"

Changing the date to a date in the future and clicking "ok" prompts the user to schedule the post by clicking the new "Schedule" button.
