checkout interactive content type

gpakat's picture

what happens when one author is working on a course presentation and tries to save while another author is also editing the course presentation. There is a message that it can't be saved. But is it possible to checkout content when an author is editing the content so another author can only view it and not edit? Or is this standard cms functionality..

This is dependent on the CMS-implementation. In e.g. Drupal, it is like you are saying: If author A and B opens the same version of the node for editing, and the last save is done, it won't be saved since changes have been done in the meantime. There is (afaik) no merge mechanisms to handle this. When viewing a node it will at all times show the latest saved version.
