What is the Content Status Indicator?

The content status is displayed when viewing a page's or blog's content. See the Content Status Indicator icon located under the content's title, next to the creator/updater details. Click the indicator icon to see more details in a bubble.


3 modes of the Content Status Indicator show different levels of detail about the status information of the content.


This is the default mode when viewing a page's or blog's content. Only shows the last calculated status. By hovering the mouse over the icon, the status description and the time of the last status refresh can be seen in a tooltip.

The status is refreshed periodically by the Refresh content statuses job or by clicking on the indicator icon.

  • If the status hasn't been refreshed for more than 4 hours, the indicator icon will be grayed out, indicating that the status may be outdated and a refresh is required.
  • If the status hasn't been refreshed for more than 24 hours, it will be refreshed automatically without clicking on it.


If you need more information about the content status, click the status indicator icon.

A popup will display some additional details, like the last viewer/updater user and the time of the event. While the last refreshed status appears, a new status refresh starts automatically and the panel will be updated accordingly.

There are several links below for quick actions.

Status details

For the most detailed view of the content status, click the Details link at the bottom of the expanded view. A dialog shows separate tabs for different aspects of the content status.


This tab explains why the content is in the current status. There are some basic information about the actual space and the assigned content status scheme. Below that, each status of the assigned content status scheme are listed (in the same order as defined in the scheme).

Each status can define one or two CQLs:

  1. The first one tests for the content itself.
  2. The second one (optional) tests for the ancestors.

During the status refresh, the content or its ancestors are tested for the CQLs one after another. If there is no match for the CQLs of the first status, then it will be tested with the following status, and so on, until there is a match. If the content or ancestors are not matching for any of the CQLs, the default (last) status will be assigned. Colored dots marks whether the content is matching or not (or not tested at all).


All view events that were tracked by the app are listed here. On the right, the Insights panel displays some aggregated information about views. Select a period from the dropdown for calculating those numbers.

Note that the selection of the period does not affect the content view table data, so no filtering will be applied. It only updates the Insights panel.


This tab provides the same functionality as the Views, but for content updates.

CQL fields

All content properties that can be used in CQL queries to filter for the content is listed here. You can find a detailed list of CQL fields that are provided by the Better Content Archiving app.

Support info

This tab shows the content properties applied to the content in JSON format. You may need this information only if the Midori support team asks for it while troubleshooting.
