PreviewShare: SkipPublish not working?

There isn't a project set up in the Endevver Lighthouse account for this, and no way to just create a sort of "orphan" ticket, so here we are.

So, first question is whether there's a "known stable" download for the Preview Share plugin. There's a bunch of tags and an obviously most-recent one, but that's not really quite the same thing as far as I'm concerned.

Using the 1.1 code, and it doesn't seem to me that the "skip publish" function is working.

Walking through:
* 4.35 Commercial, plugin installed, everything left default(so, the config directives aren't set at all in mt-config) * Edit an already-published entry(I also have a tab opened to this entry front-side) * Make edits, click Preview * See temporary changes, click Share Preview * Arrive at screen with the preview share URL, mail options, etc.

At this point, if I switch over to the tab with the front-end view and reload, my presumed-temporary edits are live. If I understand the PreviewShareSkipPublish description, this is wrong. If I leave that share screen open and just navigate to the entry in a new tab via Manage->etc. the changes have definitely been saved, with the entry in published status.

I don't think I have any other plugins installed that tie into the publishing process, but if you have a suspicion about that, I can look. There's just a lot of them, and it's probably not going to be trivial to rip them out.

    Oh, and explicitly setting the PreviewShareSkipPublish directive didn't change anything.

    I wanted to acknowledge receipt of this issue. I have asked David Raynes to look into this and fix any issues he discovers.

    Hey Su! Please accept our apologies for not responding until now. I'm going through the system looking for straggler posts like this one and wanted to know if this issue is still relevant for you. If so, please let me know so I can bump it up on our radar.

    Once again, sorry to have dropped the ball. We aim to do better in the future.
