How to Publish

There are two methods of publishing your website, the Publish Tab or the drop-down menu. The best method to use depends on the amount of items you would like to publish at one time, and the server destination.

Publish Tab

Use the publish tab when publishing a single item and/or you wish to manually select the publishing destinations (i.e., the staging server only.)

  1. In the folder structure, select the item that you wish to publish.
    Note: Selecting a folder will publish all contents within the folder.
  2. Select Publish (top).
  3. Check/uncheck any of the servers where you don't want to publish.

  4. Click Submit.
  5. Check the publishing queue to watch your job.
  6. Check your site for the updates; be sure to refresh your browser.

Drop-Down Menu

Use the drop-down menu to select multiple items within the same folder, and to publish to all server destinations. IMPORTANT: Do not use this method if your website is live but you would like to publish to only the staging server. 

  1. In the folder structure, select the item that you wish to publish.
    Note: Selecting a folder will publish all contents within the folder.
  2. Check the individual boxes next to the items you want to publish.
  3. Select Publish from the drop-down menu (bottom).
