Blogger Atom API draft documentation


This document defines the draft method. See the original Atom API documentation for other calls and methods.

Using Draft

To use drafts in Blogger we have created a new namespace with a new optional element called 'draft' in that namespace. The only valid children of draft are 'true' or 'false'. If draft is left out of a newly created post then it is assumed to be live. If draft is left out of an edited post then the post's draft status will not change. Here is a concrete example of the syntax:

<draft xmlns="">true</draft>
