- c.Clicking on the Phase column for the article in the In progress section of the Work list page.
2Ensure all locales are Done
by successively clicking on all Done buttons as they appear, or clicking on the All done button, if available.
3Release the article
by clicking on the Release button.
4Optionally, delete any previous versions
by, for each version, clicking on the Purge button.
For most sites, previous versions are not needed, unless they are required for archiving or reference, or possibly useful source material for other articles but not now required in later versions of the article itself.
However, if really wanted for proper archiving for legal record-keeping, save the page from a browser as a single-file format, such as .mhtml, which keeps all content, including linked and embedded files, from the same site as one file.
The page is redisplayed with the version's line deleted.
