We have a 2 step workflow i.e draft and final.

We notice the warning message below on any item when trying to edit

If you publish now, the selected version will not be visible on the Web site because it has been replaced by an older version.
Version 1 will be published instead.
  1. Do we need to worry about this warning?
  2. is there any fix we could apply to stop this warning?

Check if Version 2 of your item in "final" workflow state.

This is not an error. This is a functionality of Sitecore. When the current item version you are working on does not satisfy the requirement to publish (ex: item version is not in the final workflow state, item version is set to never publish, item version have publish time set, etc), this warning will be displayed.

    How would one check if an item is in "final" workflow state? How would one know if a Workflow is pending/being applied to an item in the first place Commented Oct 9, 2019 at 21:15
