Consider the 8 default post statuses that WordPress uses by default:
* Publish: Viewable by everyone. (publish)
* Future: Scheduled to be published in a future date. (future)
* Draft: Incomplete post viewable by anyone with proper user role. (draft)
* Pending: Awaiting a user with the publish_posts capability (typically a user assigned the Editor role) to publish. (pending)
* Private: Viewable only to WordPress users at Administrator level. (private)
* Trash: Posts in the Trash are assigned the trash status. (trash)
* Auto-Draft: Revisions that WordPress saves automatically while you are editing. (auto-draft)
* Inherit – Used with a child post (such as Attachments and Revisions) to determine the actual status from the parent post. (inherit)
