Thanks for replying. So that you know, the two posts that were published by the contributing author (who should not have this ability) on my blog where changed by me to "pending" shortly after they went live. This is why you could not see them as published.
On this topic, I just received an email and phone call from a different contributing author notifying me that he could now see a "Publish" button that he could never see before. He hit the publish button and the post apparently went to my pending file. He had no "save as draft" or "submit for review" button.
He was using Safari. when he went back to check it in Mozilla, the view was different. When I asked him to start a brand new test blog, he again saw only the publish button. He sent me a screenshot that I can send to you if you want (just tell me how to get it to you.)
My fear is that any of the 200+ contributing authors will begin to publish on my site without my editing.
Can you assure me that this won't be the case?
