Question states

Questions can have one of the following built-in states:

  • Open This is the default state for new questions and questions without answers. An unanswered question will appear as open unless it has been manually set as resolved.

  • Pending A question is marked as pending when a moderator posts an answer.

  • Resolved A question is automatically set as resolved when an answer is selected. A question can also be manually set as resolved by the owner or a moderator.

  Info

State should not be confused with status. The status refers to the publication status (i.e. published, unpublished, trashed, etc) while the state refers to the question workflow (resolved, open, pending).
