I have recently deployed a site, where i turned Simple Publishing On in my sitedefinition.

The reason why i turned it On was to get rid of the approval workflow which my client did not need.

However it appear that not only the approval workflow was removed, but also the scheduling feature - therefore i will have to turn it Off again.

It will be easy for me to deploy a new sitedefinition, whith the SimplePublishing set to Off, but a lot of sites has allready been created using the "On" version.

I was thinking about making a small application that enumerated my Webs collection to accomplish that - but i cannot find what properties to use.

Does anybody know how to do this Or even better - know if there is a way to make a simpler approval workflow

Perhaps just go to Site setting and turn of the publishing feature!

Hi Brebinato and Sahil

Thank you for your responses.

However i think that you misunderstood my problem, the publishing feature is On and should remain On.

I have declared my sitedefinition using the following parameters for the publishing feature (Please note the SimplePublishing=true):

<Feature ID="22A9EF51-737B-4ff2-9346-694633FE4416">

<!-- Publishing -->

<Properties xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/">

<Property Key="ChromeMasterUrl" Value="~SiteCollection/_catalogs/masterpage/fvr.master"/>

<Property Key="WelcomePageUrl" Value="$Resources:cmscore,List_Pages_UrlName;/default.aspx"/>

<Property Key="PagesListUrl" Value=""/>

<Property Key="AvailableWebTemplates" Value="*-FORSVARETFVR#1"/>

<Property Key="AvailablePageLayouts" Value=""/>

<Property Key="AlternateCssUrl" Value="" />

<Property Key="SimplePublishing" Value="true" />

</Properties>

</Feature>

I did this to avoid the approval workflow. But it appears that that particular setting also influences the timebased publishing - StartDate - EndDate.

But now my client has created a lot of sites using my "faulty" sitedefinition, offcause i can modify my sitedefinition - but how do i turn i back off again on the existing sites
