Drafts are unfinished edits to existing pages on Golden. The changes in drafts will not appear to the public until they are published.
To publish a draft:
1. Click edit on a golden page and make your changes.
2. Click the publish button in the upper right corner.
Note: you will still have an opportunity to review changes.
3. Review the changes and confirm by clicking publish.
Choosing major vs minor edit will determine whether it will appear in activity feeds. If the change has new content or changes which are of interest to people who are following/watching the topic mark it as major. Small changes to style, formatting, or grammar without any major content changes should be marked as minor.
