  1. The manage moderation tab is no longer available, to apply the workflow to the batch content type you can go the the workflow and there is a section called "This workflow applies to:" and select batch for the content type

  2. I love the speed. There is a pause and rewind button in Youtube…Anyway excellent straight to the point content. One rather humorous observation is that you insisted on changing configuration to use non-US style date (What's wrong with them and what is an inch?) but….you're happy to change from correct English of "flavour" to "flavor"! It is a little sad that a red underline tells us that the spelling is wrong when your brain clearly kept on wanting to spell it correctly. It's rather like Google being the only source of everything that is right…eventually we just believe them.

  3. Hi John, You are doing great work. but there is a little problem. In last 7 months you just got 21 thumb-up. Do you know why? You are moving so fast and just you know that what is going around. I am sure you did not make this tutorial for advance developers(because they don't need this) . Hope you will look into it. Peace
