i have two tiers of approval for my folder and how does someone approve the contents,i mean how does the folder passes on to next tier for approval and how is it finally published?
how can the published contents be made visible for readers?
Thanks in advance,
First, you have to active Status Management Service (statemngt)in your repository, after that you have to restart portal.
Then in your folder, details->setting->approval->you define step and approvers.
All document store in this folder will use the same approval process.
When a user approve a document, this documet is publish.
In this folder you save your documets, all user with read (only) permission, will see this document once is approved.
If you create KM Navigation iview to point this folder, the only documents visibles (by user with only read permission) will be approved.

You need to set up an approval process and define approvals in each step. Notifications will be send to approvers in the order they are added in step.
You can find more information here
Once the final step is over the content is published and can be seen by all the users. For all users not being able to see the documents/folder in process. Please had appropriate service permissions on the document/folder. You can do so from details->settings->service permission.
also all other users who are not approvars or authors should just have read permission from details->settings->permissions.
Hope this Helps.
