Preview/Publish 
Default channel

Sets the default channel for the user type. If no default channel is set and there is more than one channel, the user is prompted to select a channel when previewing content. This setting can also be configured for groups or for individual users by modifying their profiles. If a default preview channel has been specified in more than one place, the system will apply the following logic:

  • Check the user profile: if a default channel has been set, this will be used.
  • Check the user's group profile: if a default channel has been set and no default channel is set for the individual user, the group setting will be used.
  • Check the publish handler: if a default channel has neither been set for the individual user, nor for the group(s) the user belongs to, the default channel specified in the publish handler will be used.
